We start with Carbon Nanotube structures such as sheets and yarns, then chemically and mechanically treat for specific properties.
Craytex, LLC was founded in March 2015 by Larry Carlson and Robert Hicks to optimize and commercialize the unique carbon nanotube structures we developed at UCLA under government funding.
Nanotubes are consolidated and aligned, to give much higher strength and modulus. The upper picture shows the sheet as received.
The lower picture shows the sheet after processing. Note the alignment and densification
