Huntsman to show Miralon carbon nanotubes at JEC World 2022

Huntsman Advanced Materials will unveil several applications of Miralon, a new generation of carbon nanotube- based (CNT) materials.

Unlike standard CNTs available only in powder form, these materials exist in the form of sheets, yarns, or pulp. 

Miralon materials are comprised of interconnected bundles of ultra- long, entangled nanotubes. This structure drives increased strength, electrical conductivity (almost equivalent to single-wall CNTs), and toughness at low density, with significant performance benefits vs other standard nanotubes, according to the company.. 

Application examples include in composite embedded heaters or ESD protection for data cables utilising Miralon sheets, but also epoxy conductive adhesive, thermoplastic granulates for compression moulding, or filaments for FFF (fused filament fabrication) 3D-printing processes. 

The company will be on stand M31, in Hall 6, at JEC World, Paris, 03-05 May 2022.
