Researchers from Applied Sciences Inc., a world leader in advanced materials, say carbon nanotubes are ideal carriers for nano-sized self-healing capsules in thermoset composites. Applied Sciences is exploring this technology under a NASA phase I program targeted at developing self healing composite technology using Pyrograf III carbon nanotubes.
A Comparison of Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes and Stacked-Cup Carbon Nanotubes
While carbon nanotubes (CNT) and carbon nanofibers (CNF) are both hollow, nanometerals in scale, and produced in a similar manner, there are distinct differences which significantly impact their performance and ability to be processed. The primary differences between the materials are morphology, size, ease of processing, and…Continue
