CarboTube

CNT-based components for automotive and electrical applications as well as tubes and materials for cabling are at the center of the CarboTube project. It explores the capabilities of CNT to significantly improve antistatic properties, thermal and electrical conductivity as well as mechanical and thermo-mechanical characteristics. The CarboTube project also aims to develop and ensure the reproducibility of these product properties for large-scale production. This will require a systematic scale-up of compounding and processing steps from a laboratory scale to a production scale, which is reflected in the project. The projected final products include molded automotive parts that allow for electrostatic coating and no longer need a conductive primer and extensive surface treatments as well as tubes and cable applications with specific thermal and electrical conductivity. These have the potential to result in major cost savings.
