Birla Carbon and CHASM Advanced Materials partner to develop nanotube-enhanced carbons; tires, coatings, batteries
Birla Carbon, a global manufacturer and supplier of carbon black, and CHASM Advanced Materials Inc., a developer and manufacturer of printed electronics materials and battery materials, based on proprietary carbon nanotube and ink/coating technologies, are partnering to accelerate the discovery and development of novel nanomaterials to benefit various market segments including high-performance tires, novel coatings and next-generation batteries.
Through this joint development agreement, the two companies will share research and engineering resources to develop and manufacture hybrid nanomaterials based on carbon substrates and carbon nanotubes.
These hybrid nanomaterials will combine CHASM’s nanotube enhanced carbon (NTeC) technology with Birla Carbon’s expertise in commercialization and manufacturing. In so doing, the companies anticipate jointly developing novel carbon nanomaterials tailored for performance in a wide variety of demanding applications.
