Masterbatch Products – Maximizing Performance with Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (invited presentation)

Arkema Inc, US

Keywords: Multi-walled carbon nanotubes

Abstract:

Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT’s) exhibit unique electrical, mechanical and thermal properties. Use is overwhelmingly to improve performance of composites. Maximizing performance improvement is dependent upon proper dispersion of MWCNT’s. Said dispersion is best achieved with masterbatch products – MWCNT’s already dispersed (5 – 40% weight) in a resin. Arkema has developed numerous Graphistrength® masterbatch products based upon: multi-purpose resin, polyamides, polycarbonates, fluoropolymers, water-soluble polymers, elastomers, and epoxies. Performance benefits of each will be discussed.
