It offers a compelling competitive advantage, because this patented technology significantly increases the performance of mechanical properties without the unfortunate trade-offs that historically have plagued the first-generation nano materials.
NAFEN can either replace other nano materials like CNTs, nano silica and nano clays; or it can work in compliment to them. Since NAFEN is both crystalline and fibrous, it will not only make materials significantly stronger, it will have better interlocking capabilities with the surrounding matrix, and therefore provide better fracture and wear-resistance.
