Benefits for participating companies
OCSiAl is a hi-tech company producing TUBALL™ single wall carbon nanotubes – an advanced additive that improves the properties of base materials. Single wall carbon nanotubes should be referred to as graphene nanotubes because each nanotube is an extremely thin rolled-up sheet of graphene. The pre-eminence of TUBALL™ is related to its exceptional properties, such as superior conductivity, high temperature resistance, strength and flexibility. To simplify nanotube handling, OCSiAl provides TUBALL™ MATRIX, a line of pre-dispersed concentrates for increased conductivity, enhanced mechanical properties and vivid colours in a multitude of materials. As little as 0.1% of TUBALL™ MATRIX enables the production of more high-performance elastomers, composites, coatings and plastics. OCSiAl is the world’s largest SWCNTs manufacturer. With its current 10 tonne production capacity, the company plans to increase it to 60 tonnes by 2018 and to 310 tonnes by 2020. Headquartered in Luxembourg, it is represented in the USA, Russia, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Israel and India.
