AIST, Tokyo University Codevelop Rubber Composite Material With Heat Conductivity Similar to Metal

The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) has worked with the University of Tokyo to develop a rubber composite material that offers heat conductivity on par with that of metal. This was achieved by dispersing two kinds of carbon fiber – specifically carbon nanofiber (CNF) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) – as fillers throughout polyrotaxane, a type of...

Yonex Adopts Nitta’s CNT Technology for Tennis Rackets

Sporting goods maker Yonex Co. Ltd. (TYO:7906) plans to manufacture tennis rackets with shafts that incorporate Namd prepreg, a carbon fiber prepreg made using Nitta Corp.’s (TYO:5186) proprietary Namd technology for carbon nanotube (CNT) dispersion and synthesis. The use of Namd prepreg in the shafts of VCore Pro tennis rackets is expected to provide a combination of strength, flexibility and...

Nitta Unveils CNT Compound Technology at Nano Tech

Nitta Corp. (TYO:5186) has received a favourable reception upon unveiling its compound technology for carbon nanotubes (CNT) at “nano tech 2016”, an international nanotechnology exhibition and conference held in Tokyo end of January. Currently under development by Nitta, this technology bypasses the use of adhesives to thinly and evenly attach CNT to several μm in diameter of carbon fiber (CF)...
