Boron Nitride Nanotubes
Category: Pre-market additives

Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) have demonstrated a wide range of benefits when implemented into material systems. These promising properties of BNNTs surpass those of carbon nanotubes in many regards and allow the material to find numerous applications in aerospace, medicine, energy, electronics, and many other industries.  

Typical Use:
  • Low reactivity additive to improve mechanical properties of aluminum and other metal alloys
  • Enhanced matrix materials to significantly increase interlaminar composite strength
  • Tougheners for ceramics, ceramic matrix composites, and 3D printed materials
  • Membranes for carbon dioxide removal from industrial flue gas
  • Flame retardant materials for safety applications
  • Highly functionalized membranes for selective filtering technologies
  • Aerogels for high capacity removal of oils from water sources
  • Nanofiltration devices for removal of organic pollutants
