SouthWest NanoTechnologies Presenting Carbon Nanotube Ink Research at NSTI
(Nanowerk News) SouthWest NanoTechnologies, Inc. (SWeNT), a leader in high quality, single-wall and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNT), will be exhibiting and presenting a paper at the Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI) Nanotech Conference and Expo 2010 June 21-24,at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. At SWeNT's exhibit (booth # 751), its innovative new ink products, nanoPly™ coated fabrics and new applications for its specialty multi-wall (SMW) CNT will be featured.
The subject of the SWeNT paper is "Novel Carbon Nanotube Ink Technology Allows High-Volume, Low-cost Printing of CNTs Using Commercial Printing Methods and Equipment". SWeNT's Director of Manufacturing, Dr. Philip Wallis will present the paper June 22nd at 2:20 p.m. - Room 210B. Wallis has more than 30 years of experience in research and development of ink technologies and carbon nanotubes.
SWeNT's CNT Inks, based on V2V™ Ink technology developed by alliance partner, Chasm Technologies, Inc. can be printed using commercial, high-volume printing methods and equipment, including flexographic, gravure and screen printing.
This breakthrough ink technology, combined with SWeNT's unique ability to tailor the synthesis of CNT materials for applications (using its patented CoMoCATŪ process) will enable customers to print large area, low-cost devices for a wide range of applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics, improved energy storage and printed electronics.
At NSTI, SWeNT is also seeking collaboration partners to accelerate commercialization for its CNT-enhanced cathodes that can significantly extend the lifecycle of Lithium Ion batteries in plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV).
SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) is a privately-held specialty chemical company that manufactures high quality single-wall and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes, printable inks and CNT-coated fabrics for a range of products and applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics, improved energy storage and printed electronics. SWeNT was created in 2001 to spin off nanotube research developed at the University of Oklahoma.
