Title (EN) POLYMER / CARBON-NANOTUBE INTERPENETRATING NETWORKS AND PROCESS FOR MAKING SAME
(FR) RESEAUX IMBRIQUES DE POLYMERE/NANOTUBE DE CARBONE ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION CORRESPONDANT
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention is directed to new methods for combining, processing, and modifying existing materials, resulting in novel products with enhanced mechanical, electrical and electronic properties. The present invention provides for polymer/carbon nanotube composites with increased strength and toughness; beneficial for lighter and/or stronger structural components for terrestrial and aerospace applications, electrically and thermally conductive polymer composites, and electrostatic dissipative materials. Such composites rely on a molecular interpenetration between entangled single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and cross-linked polymers to a degree not possible with previous processes.
(FR) L'invention concerne de nouveaux procédés destinés à combiner, traiter, et modifier des matières existantes, produisant de nouveaux produits à propriétés mécaniques, électriques et électroniques améliorées. Cette invention fournit des composites de polymère/nanotube de carbone à résistance et ténacité accrues; avantageux pour des composants structurels plus légers et/ou plus lourds dans des applications terrestres et aérospatiales, des composites polymères électriquement et thermiquement conducteurs et des matières dissipatives électrostatiques. Ces composites s'appuient sur l'interprétation moléculaire entre des nanotubes de carbone à paroi unique entremêlés (SWNT) et des polymères réticulés à un degré impossible à atteindre avec les procédés antérieurs.
