Showa Denko to start production of VGCFTM-X Carbon Nanotube at 400 tpa Oita plant

31-Mar-10
Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) has completed a 400 tpa plant for VGCFTM-X, a new grade of carbon nanotube with an optimized design for resin composite applications. After a trial run, a commercial production is to begin next month. This is the world's largest carbon nanotube production facility, and will be the most cost-competitive. Since the product has very high electrical conductivity and dispersibility, a small added amount can give stable conductivity to resins. VGCFTM-X will be used in the production of static-free plastic cases for the carriage of electronic parts. VGCFTM-X can also improve elasticity and tenacity when added to resins and other materials. Thus, VGCFTM-X is expected to find applications in transport machinery parts and other products that require sufficient strength.
