Miralon® is the carbon nanotube-based advanced material that enables strong, lightweight and environmentally resistant solutions, solving customers’ problems, even in the harshest conditions.
Miralon products provide strength, ductility, electrical conductivity and thermal transport across several material formats including sheet, tape, yarn and dispersed products. They deliver lightweight, high performing, and efficient solutions that ensure customer success.
Carbon nanotubes are small hollow tubes comprised entirely of carbon with diameters of 0.7 to 50 nanometers and lengths generally in the 10s of microns. At the individual tube level, these unique structures exhibit exceptional properties such as 200x the strength and 5x the elasticity of steel. Historically, attempts to harness these properties have failed because the relatively short lengths of these tubes (a small fraction of a millimeter) meant that when they were combined with other materials, they are less likely to connect and form a network. Nanocomp’s processes generate tubes that are hundreds of times longer (>1mm) than those from other manufacturers and more readily form into networks allowing them to better harness the properties of individual tubes.
