Angstron Introduces Low Cost Nanomaterial

Abstract:
Angstron Materials LLC has developed a new cost effective, high quality alternative to nanotubes. The carbon-based material is called nano-graphene platelets (NGPs). Similar to carbon nanotubes, the properties and characteristics of NGPs outperform all other nanomaterials on the market. Angstron's nano-graphene product is especially suited to aerospace, automotive, energy, marine, electronics, construction, medical and telecommunications applications.

The new material demonstrates the highest thermal conductivity known today, five times that of copper, a capability that provides faster thermal dissipation. NGPs also provide electrical conductivity similar to copper yet the material's density is four times lower, resulting in lighter weight components. NGPs are fifty times stronger than steel with a surface area twice that of carbon nanotubes. These exceptional performance characteristics equip customers with the capability to modify and create new products with the potential to achieve competitive advantage and generate higher profit margins.
