LUXEMBOURG— OCSiAl has released a concentrate for graphene nanotubes.
Tuball Matrix 202 has built up a solid track record in applications including industrial rollers and castors, polyurethane shoes, printing rollers, and cleaning pigs for industrial pipelines, OCSiAl said.
To avoid explosions and fires while also preventing static noise and improving diagnostic accuracy, OCSiAl said manufacturers of cleaning pigs are replacing ammonium salts with its Tuball Matrix 202. So far, results have shown a 30 percent reduction in the rate of equipment failure, the firm said.
Tuball Matrix 202's concentrate carrier is a plasticizer based on fatty carboxylic acid ester derivatives. OCSiAl said, in comparison with ammonium salts, graphene nanotubes enable a wider range of resistivity levels that are totally independent of humidity and temperature conditions, and these nanotubes' superiority over carbon black is rooted in their easy dispersion and the preserved mechanical properties of the system.
