Here we show the first part of the process of making a simple wearable electronic display in a t-shirt using our carbon nanotube yarn. We use a standard sewing machine to stitch several long filaments of our yarn into the shirt; we plan to eventually connect these to a battery, an Arduino, and some LEDs. […]

We are still working on the sewing machine video that we promised last week, but in the meantime, we wanted to put together a fun demonstration of the flexibility of our carbon nanotube yarn. Here we have replaced the cotton string on a yoyo with a length of our carbon nanotube yarn. The yarn is […]
In this video we focus on one of our newly available products, a higher strength version of our 130 micron diameter carbon nanotube yarn.
DexMat is at the Interwire 2019 expo in Atlanta, GA, to talk about our carbon nanotube yarns and films. If you are in the area from May 14 – May 16, come by booth 154 and say hello!
In this video we perform an “amateur” impact test on a sample of our carbon nanotube film by striking a razor blade into it with a hammer. The CNT film is compressed, but not torn or damaged.
Come and meet DexMat at the Interwire Trade Exposition in Atlanta, GA from May 14th through May 16th! We will be showing off examples of our Carbon Nanotube wires and films. Learn more about Interwire at https://www.interwire19.com/
In this video we demonstrate the amount of electric current that our 500 micron diameter CNT yarn can sustain in air, and compare this to a copper wire measured with the same apparatus and environment. Here are the precise properties of the materials used in these tests: The CNT yarn has an average diameter of […]
Here we show off the difference between Pi grams of copper wire and Pi grams of our carbon nanotube yarn. Full disclosure: some of the difference in length here is due to the carbon nanotube yarn being thinner. The copper wire in this video is 1.2 mm in diameter; the carbon nanotube yarn ranged from […]
We have talked with many people who are curious about using our carbon nanotube yarn in their projects or products, so we wanted to show off a very simple DIY project of our own. For a limited time this month (March 2019) we are having a sale on our 200 micron diameter carbon nanotube yarn, […]
In this video we provide a brief look at some of the experimental work we are doing to develop new products at DexMat. Here, we are using an electroplating process to coat our carbon nanotube yarn with a layer of copper. This process may allow us to create a useful hybrid material, combining the conductivity […]
