Rudolph Bros's. & Co. to sell Zyvex Performance Materials 's CNT strengthened epoxies & prepregs

Columbus, OH | Posted on July 2nd, 2009

"This is a great day for Zyvex Performance Materials. Partnering with Rudolph Bros's. & Co. will allow our products to be well represented and sold throughout most of the Eastern US." says Lance Criscuolo, President of Zyvex Performance Materials. "Combining our products with Rudolph Bros's. & Co.'s distribution capabilities is a tremendous synergy. Rudolph Bros's. & Co. will be able to offer customers the most advanced and highest performing carbon nanotube resin systems and prepregs available today".

"We are proud to partner with Zyvex Performance Materials, a leader in nanotechnology and a fine Ohio company," comment owners Kevin and Rick Rudolph. "This agreement allows us to enlarge our product offering with the most advanced materials available, which will be the key for our customers to achieve breakthrough results that will strengthen their businesses in these challenging economic conditions".

Epovex® is a new line of liquid epoxy resins from ZPM. Epovex® resins are high performance, carbon nanotube strengthened epoxies ideal for numerous composites and adhesives applications. ZPM's patented and proven nanotube dispersion technology gives Epovex® superior structural performance. Epovex® processes similarly to unfilled epoxy resins and can be cured with a wide range of curing agents. Epovex® is available in both bisphenol-A and bisphenol-F types.

Epovex® epoxy resins are recommended for use in composite manufacturing processes such as filament winding, pultrusion, and hand lay-up. Epovex® epoxy resins can be used with most types of reinforcing fibers and fabrics such as carbon, glass, and aramid. It can also be used in adhesive and coatings applications with the proper choice of curing agent.

Arovex® is a high performance prepreg using Epovex® resin. The use of Epovex®, optimized for use in a prepreg, offers dramatically superior mechanical properties over conventional prepregs without CNTs. Arovex® is available in standard, intermediate, and high modulus carbon fibers, glass, and as a unidirectional, woven, or knitted material. Large custom material orders for Arovex® are also available.

About Zyvex Performance Materials
Based in Columbus, Ohio, Zyvex Performance Materials Inc. was spun out of Zyvex Corporation in April 2007. ZPM is focused on developing nanotechnology to improve the properties of composite materials. The company’s patented technology allows composites to take advantage of the superior physical and chemical properties of carbon nanotubes by enabling the even dispersion of carbon nanotubes in composites mixtures. ZPM was the first company to provide carbon nanotube enhanced products to the marketplace.
