RTP Company Improves Carbon Nanotube Compounds in Multiple Resin Systems (17-5-2007)
 
Specialty Compounder RTP Company has improved its nanotube processing techniques and has introduced new carbon nanotube (CNT) compounds that offer substantial performance improvements over previous CNT compounds. The new CNT compounds are available in multiple resin systems including: polycarbonate (PC), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), polyetherimide (PEI).

"RTP Company's compounding expertise is providing a new generation of CNT compounds with excellent properties," said Ned Bryant, Senior Product Development Engineer at RTP Company. "In addition, the emergence of additional CNT suppliers has favorably affected the cost of materials and thus opened up new opportunities for these unique CNT compounds."

CNT compounds are a key element of RTP Company's conductive products. They deliver superior electrical conductivity, eliminate residual voltage (hot spots) and are ideal for applications requiring strict liquid particle count (LPC) standards for cleanliness. CNT compounds also provide significant processing benefits, including the elimination of isotropic affects, moldability comparable to neat resins, and wide processing latitude.
RTP Company, headquartered in Winona, Minnesota, is a global leader in specialty thermoplastic compounding. The company has eight manufacturing plants on three continents, plus sales representatives throughout North America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific. RTP Company's engineers develop and produce custom compounds in over 60 different engineering resin systems for applications requiring color, conductivity, flame retardancy, high temperature, structural, elastomeric and wear resistant properties.
