Research Institution
General Nano is the largest manufacture of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) arrays in the United States. General Nano proposes to leverage two of its proprietary CNT form factors to locally reinforce"hot spots"in composite structural applications. Provisional patents have been filed to protect both novel approaches. There are two primary objectives are the driving force behind General Nano"s technical work plan: (1) Improving properties at the fastener holes to achieve performance levels consistent with composite structure, and (2) cost containment. General Nano has teamed with a prime contractor, composite testing house, and University in Phase I.
