Nanotubes offer potential in Europe
Legislation introduced in July 2003 requires conductive coatings to be used in volatile fuel lines in chemical plants. According to Steve Schulte, European sales manager at carbon nanotube manufacturer Hyperion Catalysis, this is leading to the replacement of PVDF linings with nanotube PFA compound. He estimates the market potential at 200tpa of nanotubes for this application alone. He also sees potential in cable insulation, flame-retardant systems and fuel cell bipolar plates.
