BÜFA COMPOSITE SYSTEMS
Partnership with OCSiAl to produce nanotubes-based modifiers
Composite materials specialist BÜFA Composite Systems (Rastede / Germany; www.buefacompositesystems.de) is joining forces with single-wall carbon nanotubes manufacturer OCSiAl (Leudelange / Luxembourg; www.ocsial.com/en) to produce and market nanotubes-based modifiers. The companies have signed a memorandum of understanding under which OCSiAl will supply BÜFA with its “Tuball” universal nanomodifier for materials. In turn, BÜFA will use nanotubes and OCSiAl technologies for their introduction into materials to manufacture and market Tuball-based modifiers under its own brand.

In addition, OCSiAl will grant BÜFA a license to manufacture its Tuball Matrix concentrates. OCSiAl said that ultra-low loadings of Tuball Matrix are sufficient to create uniform 3D networks, guaranteeing uniform conductivity and increasing materials’ mechanical properties such as strength, fracture and abrasion resistance.

BÜFA is a key OCSiAl partner in the field of resins and composites materials, and already manufactures and markets Tuball-based masterbatches based on polyester and epoxy resins for applications in coatings and composite materials for OCSiAl.
