Today we want to share the following press release from Rice University in order to shine a spotlight on a newly-published paper about an exciting medical application of carbon nanotube fibers! This work was done by a collection of researchers at Rice University and the Texas Heart Institute in Houston, the University of Illinois at […]

Some time ago, we uploaded a video showing how well a sample of our carbon nanotube film was able to hold up to an impact from a blade. In this video, we take things a step further by trying to cut some of our carbon nanotube yarn with an axe! Spoiler warning: it survives better […]
This is the follow-up to our previous video, in which we demonstrated how our carbon nanotube yarn could be stitched into fabric using a conventional sewing machine. Here we are showing off the finished product: a DexMat t-shirt with blinking LEDs embedded into our lightning bolt logo! We used an Arduino Gemma and a small […]
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 […]
