ATHLOS™ CARBON NANOSTRUCTURES (CNS)

A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES

CNS is a unique best-in-class conductive additive with the following main features:

  • High structure: forest of crosslinked branched nanotubes
  • High purity: composed of over 97% carbon
  • Ease of use: easy to handle pellet form, low dusting and fast incorporation into dispersion material 

ATHLOS™ CNS delivers an exceptional combination of conductivity, electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, mechanical and processability strength for applications that require high-performance.

    athlos-lightweighting
    Use of lighter materials like plastic, silicone and composites is a top priority for many applications, especially within the automotive and aerospace industries. ATHLOS™ CNS delivers EMI shielding capabilities at low loadings enabling a transition away from traditional metal solutions.

    athlos-electrification
    ATHLOS™ CNS offers unparalleled levels of conductivity provided by a carbon-based additive. It helps products meet the most stringent conductivity requirements at a fraction of the loading of traditional additives, optimizing performance while driving reductions in cost and weight. A unique morphology of cross linked and branched carbon nanotubes allows CNS to offer enhanced conductive pathways and enable significant performance advantages vs. conventional carbon nanotubes (CNT).

    athlos-miniaturization
    Electronics are getting smaller, thinner and lighter. Materials and parts that comprise electronic devices need to do the same. ATHLOS™ CNS gets equivalent conductive performance versus alternative additives at a fraction of a percent loading, enabling designers to develop stronger and more conductive next generation components.
