Carbon Nanotube Yoyo

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 […]

See DexMat at Interwire 2019

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/

Failure Current of DexMat CNT Yarn

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 […]

Happy Pi Day!

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 […]

Carbon nanotube yarn for DIY projects

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, […]
