This partnership supports N12 Technologies’ high-volume production of NanoStitch using UDRI’s carbon nanotube (CNT) production technology.
Brian Rice, UDRI Distinguished Composites Engineer and IACMI Technology Area Director, said, “We are excited to work closely with N12 Technologies to help them meet the growing demand for their innovative carbon nanotube product while validating our own production capabilities. The carbon nanotube product market is set for explosive growth and we’re thrilled to be working with the market leader in the category.”
N12 Technologies developed an industrial process for vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) for composite reinforcement. NanoStitch provides product designers and engineers with the ability to add toughness, impact resistance, and fatigue tolerance into their composite materials with a lighter, thinner laminate.
“We are relentlessly pushing the composites industry forward,” said N12 Technologies CEO Brad Berkson. “NanoStitch has proven itself as a commercially-viable product and is attracting attention from some of the biggest companies within the aerospace, automotive, renewable energy and consumer goods industries. UDRI is a key partner in helping us to scale our business and establish NanoStitch as the industry standard for nano-enhanced advanced composites.”
