there is no specific technology to insert CNTs into materials. Therefore, the
efforts of many developers deal with such a problem.
developers try to create materials that allow creating products with unique
properties. 3DXTech, which is a subsidiary of Global Polymer Group, is
developing a filament with ESD carbon nanotubes called 3DXNano ™. Currently the
company is testing two materials: one contains a much higher proportion of CNTs
in comparison to the other. One of the problems the R&D team faced is that
when the ratio of carbon nanotubes in the material increases, its density grows
so high that it makes printing very difficult.
Our Technology for 3D printing material based on carbon nanotubes
(CNT). As little as 0.1% of our modified carbon nanotubes remove static, add
electric conductivity and increase 3D printing materials strength, providing 3D
printing material producers with easier real product implementation.
To improve the properties of 3D materials, an effective chemical
interaction between the CNTs surface and material matrix is required.
Otherwise, the uniform mixing of CNTs with molten materials is practically
impossible. To ensure the chemical interaction of materials with nanostructure
surface, this surface must be modified.
We produce all types carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with extremely high purity in 99.5% and stable characteristics which we can produce by patented methods, resulted from 25 years’ experience in this field. .
We are able to grow CNTs on many substrates both conductive and non-conductive like silicon, silica, and copper (alloyed with аluminium on top), steel, nickel, cobalt and their alloys. Moreover, we used some exotic substrates like diamonds for CNTs growth.
Our CNTs are of great interest in connection with their unique properties, such as extreme strength, special electrical properties, high efficiency when used as conductors of heat, corrosion resistance, etc. They are impart new properties to already known materials even with a small addition and are indispensable in the design of new composite materials, based on metals, plastics, and polymers.
