Since their discovery more than 20 years ago, this is the first time BNNTs will be commercially available from continuous mass production at kilogram scale. BNNTs are 100 times stronger than steel and 50 times stronger than industrial-grade carbon fibre, yet they are as light as carbon fibre. They are also super-flexible and can be bent thousands of times without failure. They are more thermally conductive than copper and can sustain high temperatures of up to 1000oC in untreated air without degradation. In addition, they are one of the best materials for neutron radiation protection (e.g. during space travel). BNNTs are the future of key industries including aviation, automotive, space travel, power generation, electronics, defence and even sporting goods. In the words of Nobel Prize winning chemist Professor Richard Smalley, “The nanotube is the strongest fibre that you can make out of anything, ever.”
