Miralon® Dispersed Product

Miralon Dispersed Products are carbon nanotube additives that can be integrated into various resin and epoxy systems to enhance material properties. Manufactured via chemical vapor deposition and dispersion processes, the resulting fibers are porous bundles of CNTs approximately 0.05mm in diameter and 1mm in length.  Miralon dispersed products have been proven to enhance thermoplastic and thermoset resins, polymer fiber reinforced composites, coatings, and adhesives.

Advantages:

  • Low loading percentages (<1% for electrical and <10% for mechanical)
  • Easier processability
  • Preservation of base material properties
  • Provide EMI/ESD shielding to historically “mechanical-only” products
  • Increased strength and stiffness
  • Chemical and environmental resistance
  • Enhanced adhesion

Potential Applications:

  • Additive for thermoplastic and thermosetting resin systems
  • EMI & ESD protection in plastics, coatings, and adhesives
  • Stiffness and reinforcement modifier
  • Elongation and ductility modifier
  • Additive for environmental & chemical protection (scratch, corrosion and UV resistance, thermal shielding, etc.) i
  • Material for additive technology and 3-D Printing

Dispersed products are currently available in limited kg batch quantities in a dry pulp format, with capacity expansions that will enable tonnage quantities over the next 18 months.  Other formats such as master batch (at various loading percentages) and 3-D printing filament are able to be produced on-site in evaluation quantities. Nanocomp is actively developing partnerships within the plastics and additives communities to facilitate dispersed product processing solutions. Miralon dispersed products can be processed via industry standard methods of injection and compression molding techniques.
