NanoIntegris Technologies strives to enable the realization of carbon nanotube-based commercial products with high-capacity processes and lower prices. The acquisition of NanoIntegris Technologies by the Canadian-based Raymor Industries Inc. in April 2012 has catalyzed the advancement of cost-effective nanotube purification and separation techniques.
Renowned for the purity and reliability of its products, NanoIntegris is now reducing its price for its electronic-grade SuperPureTubes™ down to 1000 $/g. This price reduction was made possible by the adoption of Raymor Nanotech’s plasma single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) as a starting material for SuperPureTubes™. Raymor Nanotech’s plasma-grown SWCNT have an exceptional graphitization level, a purity comparable to the best arc-grown SWCNT, but above all are produced at the lowest price and highest capacity of all SWCNT types.
NanoIntegris materials, that have led to world-record performances for Field Effect Transistors (FET), Organic Photovoltaic Cells (PVC), and many other applications, will now be produced on large scales at the Raymor Headquarters in Boisbriand, Canada. NanoIntegris thus contributes to the global effort of making carbon nanotube electronics a market reality. SuperPureTubes™, with SWCNT purity levels above 95% as measured by optical absorption, are an ideal material for transparent conductive films (TCF). While organic transparent conductors and metallic nanowires also compete for this niche market, nanotube-based TCF uniquely combine flexibility, high conductivity, as well as resistance to humidity and heat.
About Raymor Industries
Raymor Industries Inc. comprises the two divisions Raymor Nanotech and AP&C as well as Nanointegris, a subsidiary now located in Boisbriand, QC, Canada. NanoIntegris is the world’s leading supplier of high mobility semiconductor inks. These inks contain high-purity, sorted metallic and semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), graphene or HiPco nanotubes. They are used in the development of the next generation of transistors, transparent conductors and photovoltaics, as shown by over 200 published scientific studies using these advanced materials. AP&C produces a variety of spherical high purity metal powders that display remarkable flowability. With a technology based on plasma atomization, AP&C produces amongst the purest and most spherical powders on the market, and supplies them to leading biomedical and aerospace manufacturing companies. Feature products include Titanium gr 1, Ti-6Al-4V gr 5 and gr 23 powders that are ideally suited for powder metallurgy processes such as additive manufacturing (AM), metal injection molding (MIM), hot isostatic pressing (HIP), and coatings.
Raymor Nanotech’s high quality single-wall carbon nanotubes are the most affordable on the market. They can be used in many applications such as electro-static charge dissipation and transparent conductors, reinforcement fibers for composite materials, as well as energy storage and conversion.
