Recent Developments

Apr 2021 Mechnano, an Arizona-based, has come out of covertness to present a technology that allows carbon nanotubes (CNT) to be exploited in additive manufacturing materials. The company considers its technology as an 'unusual breakthrough' for additive manufacturing materials, considering it will considerably enhance features like impact strength and tear endurance. Mechnano has shaped a method to develop CNTs into a 'discrete form' that can be disseminated through additive manufacturing materials without re-clumping. The subsequent discrete tubes, named MechT, can be made to order to the performance requirements of the particular 3D printing system and bring increases in tensile potency up to 50%, increases in hardiness up to 200%, and raises tear resistance upto 850%.

Apr 2021 LG Chem has commenced building the largest carbon nanotube (CNT) manufacturing factory in Korea. The company is enthusiastically targeting the rapidly increasing CNT market, widely expended as the material for cathodes in electric vehicle batteries. LG Chem declared that the 1,200 metric tons (MT) expansion of Yeosu CNT 2nd Plant—representative an investment of 65 billion KRW (US$58.3 million)—was finished and has started commercial procedures.
