Abstract:

Technology Assessment & Transfer, Inc. (TA & T) proposes an inexpensive, flexible, and durable conductive coating that consists of carbon nanotubes dispersed in a UV-curable polymer. This coating need not be applied in a vacuum or clean room environment, and could in fact be applied in the field if repairs are necessary. TA & T will develop UV-curable, CNT-filled oligomer/monomer blend coatings with high flexibility, erosion resistance, and conductive properties. Two innovative dispersion methods, resonant acoustic mixing and microfluidizer processing, will be utilized to overcome the CNT dispersion challenges and create uniform, non-agglomerated dispersions of CNTs in a polymer matrix. Both of these novel mixing processes can be scaled up for large quantity production.
