The first mass applications for MWCNTs are likely to be for protection against electrostatic discharge. For ESD applications, the electrical conductivity and high aspect ratio of MWCNTs are exploited to form an electrically percolating nanotube network at low loadings (a few wt %) within an otherwise high resistance plastic. This prevents static charge build-up on the surface of the plastic and constitutes a core business opportunity for Hyperion Catalysis International. Hyperion sells nanotubes premixed within thermoplastic master batch for ready-to-use formulations.

In many applications, it is necessary to tailor the chemical nature of the nanotubes in order to take advantage of their unique properties. 1). These problems can be addressed by developing a new multifunctional surface treatment technology that optimizes the interaction between CNTs and the host matrix, according to Dr. M. Banash of Zyvex (2006). 20 3. 1. Agglomeration of carbon nanomaterials is a problem: carbon black, MWCNTs, and SWCNTs. Due to strong attractive interactions, and van der Waal interactions, almost all the carbon nanomaterials form an aggregate, and without any exception, SWCNTs tend to aggregate to form ropes or bundles and further agglomerate when dispersed in a polymer matrix, thus preventing the efficient transfer of their superior properties to the matrix.
