Dymax Oligomers and Coatings, a division of Dymax, has joined forces with Arizona company Mechnano to develop UV-curable dispersions and masterbatches of Mechnano’s discrete, functionalized carbon nanotube (CNT) for UV applications. The partnership will have an initial primary focus on 3D printing applications with additional applications to follow.

Mechnano has developed a novel technology that enables the creation of stable dispersions of discrete, non-agglomerated CNTs. This technology unlocks the performance benefits of these discrete CNTs, and enables improvements to electrical and thermal conductivity, impact resistance, tear resistance, adhesion, corrosion resistance and much more. Dymax Oligomers & Coatings manufactures Bomar oligomers and other raw materials for UV/EB applications, including a range of products designed for use in 3D printing applications.

The partnership will focus on developing a range of functionalizations of the CNTs, supplied in a variety of dispersion bases, to target improvements to specific properties.
