Carbon nanotube (CNT) manufacturer Nanocyl (Sambreville, Belgium) has expanded its line of masterbatches that feature its highly conductive NC7000 CNTs. PLASTICYL thermoplastic concentrates now include new masterbatches for thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and polyetherehterketone (PEEK) resins, along with proven masterbatches for polycarbonate, polypropylene, polyamide, high- and low-density polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE) and polybutylene terephthalate resins. When incorporated into TPU or HDPE, the CNTs reportedly help produce more durable materials that have a smoother surface and a greater resistance to chemicals, abrasion and heat. The product also offers good conductivity when integrated into elastomers, and it significantly enhances the mechanical properties and durability in O-rings, conveyor belts and timing belts.
