Honolulu-based Oceanit Laboratories Inc. is looking to patent a nanotechnology concrete mix that creates stronger material for use in buildings, bridges and roads.
Companies worldwide are working on ways to incorporate so called carbon nanotubes into concrete. In addition to increasing toughness the nanotubes, which are thousands of times thinner than a human hair, are highly conductive. That means that they could be used to create a kind of nervous system within concrete that could be used to detect cracking and weaknesses in structures.
