CNT to Revolutionize Auto Manufacture?
Carbon fiber is so last century. In a press release on Send2Press, CNT Technologies announced their carbon nanotube technology (CNT) has been named "one of the most innovative products of 2007" by the editors of R&D Magazine and MICRO/NANO Newsletter. They claim CNT fiber is one-tenth the weight of plebeian carbon fiber and 500% stronger than any other engineering material. CEO Robert Leary thinks his product will revolutionize manufacture of everything from automobiles to tennis rackets. "It is analogous to leaping in one bound from the Bronze Age to the age of high-strength steel and aluminum. Companies that do not have access to our product will simply be unable to compete and maintain market share." Um… Ok.
