CleanTech International Announces Nanoskin Material

Share Article

A research team led by Vesselin N. Shanov, Ph.D., has published the results of their work on developing a structural nanoskin product with exciting and far-reaching potential application in numerous fields, including aircraft structures and maintenance, electronics, display panels, lubrication/nanobearings—with additional testing being pursued in the areas of power generation, aircraft damage detection, and high temperature disease treatment.

structural and electrical characteristics of CNSC make them promising for developing unique and revolutionary smart materials. CNSC have high strength as well as high thermal and electrical conductives and therefore can provide structural and functional capabilities simultaneously, including actuation, sensing and generating power.

A research team led by Vesselin N. Shanov, Ph.D., has published the results of their work on developing a structural nanoskin product with exciting and far-reaching potential application in numerous fields, including aircraft structures and maintenance, electronics, display panels, lubrication/nanobearings—with additional testing being pursued in the areas of power generation, aircraft damage detection, and high temperature disease treatment.

The report notes comparisons between carbon nano tubes and Carbon Nanosphere Chains (CNSC) now being produced by Clean Technology International Corp. The CNSC material (which was noted to be almost catalyst free and lightweight and hydrophobic) was mixed with an epoxy polymer using a shear mixer and ultrasonicator. The researchers noted that CNSC have a unique spherical morphology, which is positive for electrical and thermal conductivity. Exciting results were found in levels of electrical conductivity, as measured by ohms of resistance.

As to the structural nanoskin produced, the researchers note “structural and electrical characteristics of CNSC make them promising for developing unique and revolutionary smart materials. CNSC have high strength as well as high thermal and electrical conductives and therefore can provide structural and functional capabilities simultaneously, including actuation, sensing and generating power.”

At the end of their report, the researchers note Pioneering Applications of Structural Nanoskin. The entire report can be downloaded at http://www.cleantechnano.com.

Research quantities of CNSC are available for purchase by academic, government and corporate entities.
