Grace Continental Korea Introduces Nanotube-based Concentrates for Coatings

Published on 2018-06-22. Author : SpecialChem

Last year, Grace Continental Korea successfully kicked off the production of TUBALL MATRIX single wall carbon nanotube-based concentrates specifically for application in silicones. The positive customer feedback has encouraged the company to expand its line of nanotube-based concentrates and launch the production of TUBALL MATRIX concentrates for composites, coatings and resins.

Unique Technology Developed by OCSiAl

  • This unique technology was developed by OCSiAl to simplify the handling of single wall carbon nanotubes. 
  • In contrast to most standard additives, even ultra-low loadings of TUBALL-based concentrates, starting from just 0.1%, are enough to achieve the required level of conductivity, enhance mechanical properties and maintain vivid colors
  • Moreover, the application of TUBALL MATRIX does not require any additional equipment or formulation changes, and it enables a standard and clean manufacturing process

In the Asia Pacific region we are seeing a rapidly growing number of manufacturers switching from standard anti-static additives to single wall carbon nanotubes. Grace Continental is already a pioneer in the commercialization of innovative nanotube solutions for silicones on the Korean market.

And now the market demand has driven the company to expand its product line for composites and coatings too, so these industries can also benefit from this nanotechnology,” said Viktor Kim, CEO OCSiAl Asia Pacific.

Product Line Containing TUBALL Nanotubes

Grace Continental also develops its own unique product line containing TUBALL nanotubes for many other high-performance materials and end products.

For instance, the company's anti-static and highly transparent PSA films fully meet the requirements of electronics manufacturers and are opening the door for them to achieve further cost reductions.

Grace Continental’s conductive and colored HCR and LSR silicones are also attracting great interest from producers of consumer goods, automotive parts and smart electronics.

OCSiAl Asia Pacific will, together with its partners, be showcasing TUBALL nanotube-based high-performance concentrates, suspensions and end products on 11–13 July at Nano Korea 2018 (KINTEX), booth #D30.
