Applied Nanotech to Exhibit Its Carbon Nanotube-Based Composites and Materials at nano tech 2011
(Nanowerk News) Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. is pleased to announce that it will showcase its new carbon nanotube-based composites and materials, which have been shown to dramatically improve the performance of golf clubs and racquets, at nano tech 2011, the 10th International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference. The conference will be held from February 16-18, 2011 in Tokyo, and is the largest show of its kind with 50,000 participants anticipated. Applied Nanotech will be at booth #E-16.
On display at the Applied Nanotech Booth, will be its new carbon nanotube-based composites, which have the ability to provide improved mechanical strength for sporting goods equipment and windmill blades. Applied Nanotech developed these composites in conjunction with Japanese sporting goods giant, Yonex, for golf clubs and badminton racquets. After achieving significant product testing results with improvements of 14 percent, 21 percent, and 24 percent, in flexural strength (bending strength), flexural modulus (stiffness) and impact strength (addressing external shock) respectively, compared to conventional carbon materials, Yonex is introducing golf clubs and badminton racquets using this new composite, under the tradename, Nanopreme™, will be for sale in February and March 2011, respectively.
Applied Nanotech will also be exhibiting materials for high thermal conduction with low density (light weight), metallic nanoparticle inks and pastes for printed electronic applications, transparent conductors and solar cell production (energy harvesting), as well as other technologies.
