Nano additives: A revolution on hand

Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are among the most effective conductive additives which are able to significantly increase electrical and thermal conductivity, and to improve the mechanical properties and other important characteristics of materials. The Russia-based OCSiAl is the pioneer in the field with its TUBALL brand of innovative SWCNTs, which has already taken the global materials processing industry, including that of glove, tyre and auto parts, by storm

Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) an innovative nano-additive is making waves in the global materials processing industry. OCSiAl, the Russian company which has come out with a pioneering technology in this field is on a fast track of expanding its footprints across the globe with its TUBALL brand of innovative SWCNTs. The key advantage of the SWCNTs is that the desired properties of materials in the processing stage can be achieved with ultra-low loadings of the additive – hundreds or thousands of times lower than other widely used conductive additives, and starting from concentrations of just 0.01%.

OCSiAl’s huge share of this market is a direct result of the unique technology it has developed that allows it to produce high-quality single wall carbon nanotubes, under the TUBALL brand, on an industrial scale, and at a price 75 times lower than that of the nearest analogues. The company has also developed super-concentrates that simplify the introduction of nanotubes into materials and do not require changes in production processes. OCSiAl synthesises almost 90% of the world’s capacity of this unique conductive additive for thousands of materials.
