ChemSpec North America specialty chemical distribution firm (a subsidary of Paris-based Safic-Alcan Group, Uniontown, Ohio, U.S.) announced on August 31 that it entered into a distribution agreement with Belgium-based manufacturer and developer of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) Nanocyl SA (Sambreville, Belgium) to promote and distribute Nanocyl’s various multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) products. ChemSpec says it will call on both the U.S. and the Canadian industrial manufacturing markets. In particular, ChemSpec will focus its efforts growing MWCNT products in thermoplastic and elastomer compounding.
“We’re very excited to be working with such a technology-driven producer,” says ChemSpec president, Dave Moreland. “This is a unique product line that I think can really have a positive impact on the polymer compounding industry. We look forward to working closely with Nanocyl’s sales and technical staff to help educate the market on the benefits of multiwall carbon nanotubes.”
Nanocyl SA’s MWCNT products are said to come in a variety of forms, such as standard nanotubes (NC7000) on a thermoplastic carrier (Plasticyl), and an elastomer carrier (Elastocyl).
