US Nanocomposites Demand to Approach 11 Billion Pounds by 2020
After considerable research and development, and several pilot programs, nanocomposites are beginning to establish themselves in a number of key end-use markets. While conductive polymers with nanoscale carbon black fillers have been commercialized for some time, a wider variety of nanocomposites are now finding use in packaging applications and motor vehicle parts such as mirror housings, van step assists and exterior trim.
