Triad innovator's successful Ohio Buckypaper Initiative Announces Aggressive Pricing
A year after founding, Buckeye Composites (Dayton, OH, USA), a division of NanoTechLabs Inc., of Yadkinville, NCannounced on May 28th that it has reduced the price of its buckypaper product, BuckyShield™, to approximately $75/sq. ft.
In the spring of 2009, NTL teamed with the National Composite Center to create a new division, Buckeye Composites, to construct and install a 12-inch/305-mm-wide continuous line. According to Ravine, the buckypaper process is very scaleable and the company has plans to scale to a 52-inch/1,321-mm-wide continuous process. Buckeye Composites has hired chemical engineers from the University of Dayton and chemical engineering co-op students participating in the University of Dayton's Cooperative Education Program and the Ohio Third Frontier Internship Program. Buckeye Composites is also tapping local resources through NCC's business incubation program.
Jessica Ravine, Ohio Division president of Buckeye Composites said, "In addition to the technology support, the opportunity to interact with NCC's network of composite industry experts facilitates end-user collaboration that is critical to our product development success," Ravine said.
Buckeye Composites, housed in the National Composite Center (NCC, Dayton, Ohio, USA) focuses on the commercialization, scale-up and production of nano-carbon composites that use buckypaper.
