Arkema at NANO KOREA 2012: to Present Graphistrength® Master Batches for PUR Formulations

Published on 2012-08-13. Author : SpecialChem

Arkema will participate in NANO KOREA 2012 to be held at COEX, Seoul, Korea, one of the major international exhibitions devoted to nanotechnologies, from August 16th to 18th 2012 [#booth E45&E52, Hall A]. Arkema, amongst the world leaders in multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT), will present its latest generation Graphistrength® Master Batches based on thermoplastics, elastomers and solid concentrates for use in thermoset, water-soluble or polyurethane formulations, as well as conductive additives in Lithium Ion Battery (LIB) Technologies.

This range of Master Batches contains up to 45% in weight of carbon nanotubes. Used as additives, they are prized in particular for improving electrical conductivity or mechanical performances. These new Master Batches feature higher performances than when carbon nanotubes (CNT) powder is used directly, as the CNT are optimally pre-dispersed. Master Batches are also easy to use without the need for specific investments for safe handling, and are much easier to dose accurately.

Arkema, a world leader in nanostructured materials, has started up a CNT production plant at its Mont site (France, Pyrénées-Atlantiques). This 400 ton/year plant operates an innovative process and is the only CNT production plant in the world to use an entirely bio-sourced raw material.
