Abstract:
Glass Fibers Integrating SIZICYL™ to Have the Mechanical Properties and Electrical Conductivity Required for Leading-Edge Composite Applications

Nanocyl and 3B-Fibreglass Announce Joint Agreement for Developing CNT-Sized Glass Fibers for New Thermoplastic and Structural Composites

Sambreville, Belgium | Posted on February 26th, 2010

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."
