Carbon Nanotube Felts Developed

Nanocomp Technologies has found a way to mass-produce long carbon nanotube fibres and thread them into yarns and felts for various purposes. These nanotube fibres are dozens of times stronger than steel, weigh less than plastic, and can conduct electricity. Nanocomp is one of a few companies currently working to commercialise nanotube fabrics. Their main marketing points are reduced power consumption and increased strength in speciality products. Proposed applications include body armor, land, air and sea vehicles, consumer electronics and sporting goods
