Zyvex Technologies introduces a second-generation nanocomposite toughened with Arovex HT, a prepreg that improves the durability of carbon-fiber products using carbon nanotubes. Offering fracture toughness with a 200% improvement compared to traditional reinforced composite materials, Arovex HT features composite durability suitable for the on- and off-highway and marine industries. Kentera technology acts as the bridge between carbon nanomaterials and the resin matrix and disperses the nanomaterials, preventing them from agglomerating or grouping together in a product. This dispersion allows the mechanical property advantages of the nanomaterials to transfer loads from the resin matrix to the fibers, resulting in stronger products. Various North American customers currently are evaluating Arovex HT for various infrastructure applications.
