Abstract:
Speaking at The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers' (IEEE) SF Bay Area Nanotechnology Council monthly event in Santa Clara, California, OCSiAl chief technology officer Mikhail Predtechenskiy and vice president Gregory Gurevich demonstrated how carbon nanotubes can and have been successfully added into products using existing, standard manufacturing processes and facilities without the need for further investment or development.

Graphene tubes are the future of manufacturing: What’s the next step for technology? OCSiAl says single wall carbon nanotubes will change manufacturing to the same extent as the industrial revolution

Palo Alto, CA | Posted on May 23rd, 2014

Nanotubes are one atom thick sheets of graphene that are rolled into tubes, and is one of the strongest, lightest and most conductive materials known to mankind. OCSiAl recently announced a breakthrough in producing carbon nanotubes in bigger, better quality batches that was not possible before. The technology has succeeded in dropping prices to commercially viable levels for the first time, offering nanotubes for sale from $2,000 per k/g where the previous price was around $100,000 per k/g.

All OCSiAl results have been achieved as a part of industrial trials with partners, producing mass products. As it was announced during the presentation, CNT application market will be around 70 billions USD and will exceed 145 000 tons by 2025. Carbon nanotubes will also increase the range of applications available in the future. Previous ‘blue sky' technologies such as the possibility of building NASA and Google-X's ‘space elevator,' or the San-Francisco Hyperloop proposed by Elon Musk.

The world's first nanotechnology company, Zyvex Technologies, has already begun integrating OCSiAl nanomaterials into their products. "The use of SWCNTs could open the door to fundamental change in many industries, but there has always been an invincible obstacle: SWCNTs were only available in small quantities at sky-high prices, and quality wasn't guaranteed. OCSiAl helps make nanotechnology applicable for many companies desperate for a commercially viable materials innovation," said Lance Criscuolo, President of Zyvex Technologies.

About OCSiAl
OCSiAl is an international technology firm with operations in Russia, USA, UK, Germany, South Korea and headquartered in Luxembourg. Along with TUBALL®, the raw ‘as produced’ SWCNT material, OCSiAl also offers specially purified (up to 99% of SWCNT) and modified nanotubes and master batches. Having already stockpiled a large reserve of carbon nanotubes, OCSiAl has agreed terms with a number of international partners for joint product development and has signed, or is about to sign, such agreements with some well-established design and technology firms. OCSiAL welcomes new partners to get in touch via website.
