Abstract:
JEC Group has named OCSiAl’s TUBALL MATRIX, the first-ever single wall carbon nanotube-based pre-dispersed concentrate, as the most innovative raw material for composite applications. It can be applied both as a reinforcing and as a conductive additive, enabling manufacturers to develop the next generation of high-performance conductive, strong and lightweight composites.

TUBALL nanotube-based concentrates recognised as the most innovative raw material for composites by JEC Group

Moscow, Russia | Posted on November 7th, 2017

JEC Group has awarded 12 innovative companies during the JEC Asia 2017 show, held on 1–3 November in Seoul, South Korea. The winner in the Raw Materials category is OCSiAl, the world leader in manufacturing single wall carbon nanotubes, for their product TUBALL MATRIX, the first-ever industrial concentrate based on this novel additive.

OCSiAl’s TUBALL nanotubes are the first single wall carbon nanotubes to be available for commercial applications in a wide range of industries. The pre-eminence of TUBALL compared with conventional additives is related to their superior conductivity to weight ratio, their high temperature resistance, and their strength and flexibility. It gains traction starting from just 0.01% of the total compound weight.

“TUBALL MATRIX is already being applied by hundreds of OCSiAl’s partners around the world in their production processes, and we are excited by the fact that our technology has now also been acknowledged by such an authoritative organisation as JEC Group. TUBALL MATRIX was specially developed to facilitate the effective incorporation of nanotubes into materials. This technology is leading to the rapid expansion of nanotube applications in a wide range of end products,” said Youngsup Kim, OCSiAl Asia Pacific Commercial Director.

TUBALL MATRIX can be used both as a reinforcing and as a conductive additive, so it allows manufacturers of composites to develop high-performance conductive, strong and lightweight products. Various examples of high-performance materials and end products containing nanotubes were on display at OCSiAl’s booth at JEC Asia 2017. For instance, composite gas pressure cylinders modified with TUBALL nanotubes are now being used for storage and transportation of compressed air and in breathing apparatus. TUBALL nanotubes provide conductivity, increase the СFRP cylinder’s maximum working pressure, fracture toughness, impact strength and damage resistance, and contribute to its light weight.

“Discovering the most promising innovations for the composites industry is one of the primary missions of JEC Group. The Jury of the JEC Asia Innovation Awards has concluded that TUBALL MATRIX is one such technology that is able to shape the future of the industry, because it meets the modern market’s demand for stronger, lighter and more energy-efficient products,” – said JEC Group representative.

About OCSiAl Group
OCSiAl is a hi-tech company producing, on an industrial scale, TUBALL™ single wall carbon nanotubes – anadvanced additive that improves the properties of most known materials. The preeminence of TUBALL™ is related to its exceptional properties, such as superior conductivity to weight ratio, high temperature resistance, strength and flexibility. As little as 0.01% of TUBALL™ enables the use of less raw material while producing more
high-performance elastomers, composites, coatings and batteries. To simplify nanotube handling, OCSiAl provides TUBALL™ MATRIX, a line of pre-dispersed concentrates for increased conductivity, enhanced mechanical properties and vivid colours in a multitude of materials. The company holds 90% of the world’s single wall carbon nanotube market, with a 10 tonne production capacity that will increase to 60 tonnes by 2018, and 320 tonnes by 2020. Headquartered in Luxembourg, it has footprints in the USA, Russia, Korea, China, Hong Kong and India.
