Carbon Nanotechnologies Incorporated (CNI) and Performance Plastics Products, Inc. (3P) have announced a joint development agreement to develop and commericalize new polymer products. CNI’s unique single-wall carbon nanotubes will be incorporated into 3P’s custom manufactured parts in industries which have special needs in dealing with elevated temperatures, chemical and corrosion resistance or extreme pressure, wear or lubricity requirements.

CNI has also announced a strategic alliance with DSM Venturing & Business Development to develop new performance materials based on CNI’s single-wall carbon nanotubes. Single-wall nanotubes, also known as Buckytubes, are the strongest materials known, with a strength 100 times that of steel.

Houston-based CNI was founded in 2000 to commercialize discoveries in carbon nanotechnology made at Rice University. 3P, a division of Plastic Omnium, is a manufacturer of custom components for the aerospace, automotive, medical and other markets. DSM is a worldwide corporation with a materials portfolio that includes polymer fibres and films based on ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene.
