Bayer’s multi-wall nanotubes launched in US

22nd December 2008

Bayer MaterialScience’s multi-wall carbon nanotubes – called Baytubes – have been launched in the US.

The US Environmental Protection Agency gave its approval to the product, allowing the company to sell Baytubes C 150 P and HP grades in the country, thus extending its commercial-scale activities from Asia and Europe, according to Martin Schmid of Bayer.

Mr Schmid, head of Baytubes activities at Bayer MaterialScience in Leverkusen, added: "We can take Baytubes out of the lab and onto the market, working with our customers to develop new applications."

Joseph D Ventura, business development manager at Bayer MaterialScience in Pittsburgh, also described the introduction of the nanotubes in commercial volumes in the US as a "milestone".

Baytubes can be used in products such as sports equipment to improve mechanical strength and anti-static properties, by acting as a modifier or filler with polymer matrices.
