Glass Fibers Integrating SIZICYL™ to Have the Mechanical Properties and Electrical Conductivity Required for Leading-Edge Composite Applications
Nanocyl announced today it has reached an agreement with 3B for the joint development of innovative CNT glass fibers for the growing thermoplastic and structural composite markets.
In the agreement, 3B-Fibreglass, one of the leading manufacturers of fiberglass products for the reinforcement of thermoplastics and thermosets, is producing glass fibers which have sizing integrating SIZICYL, Nanocyl's versatile CNT-sizing agent which improves the mechanical and electrical properties of composite materials.
The new CNT glass fibers will provide both the electrical conductivity and the improved shear, impact and de-lamination properties OEMs must have for developing the next generation of composite materials, such as 100% recyclable automobile parts and the blades used in wind turbines.
Nanocyl and 3B
"We look forward to creating an exciting new technology with 3B," said Francis Massin, Chief Executive Officer of Nanocyl. "3B is a dynamic company, and has a unique technical expertise in developing fiberglass reinforcement products that are truly innovative."
"Nanocyl leads the CNT industry with the most conductive carbon nanotubes," said Hugues Jacquemin, Chief Executive Officer of 3B. "We believe the new CNT glass fibers will help OEMs produce new composite materials that perform better at a lower total cost."
Nanocyl S.A., established in 2002, is a leading global manufacturer of specialty and industrial carbon nanotubes. Nanocyl is headquartered in Belgium, and has a division
in the U.S., and is opening Nanocyl Korea. The Asia-Pacific market is covered through a network of partners in South Korea, Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and China. Nanocyl’s products fully meet the requirements of clients active in producing synthetic materials and manufacturing equipment for the automotive and electronic industries. As a worldwide leader in the production of carbon nanotubes, Nanocyl is focused on providing complete and value-added solutions to its customers.
3B is a leading developer and supplier of fiberglass products and technologies for the reinforcement of thermoplastics and thermosets. The company has two state-of-the-art fiberglass manufacturing facilities in Battice, Belgium and Birkeland, Norway, and is committed to technological innovation and excellence with an emphasis on environmental responsibility.
The company has two unique glass technologies, Advantex®, an eco-responsible Boron-Free E glass and HiPer-tex™, a high performance glass fiber. Both products are used in a wide range of industrial applications, including transportation (automotive and mass transit), energy (renewable wind and marine energy generation), infrastructure and defense.
