Sports gear gets an edge from nanotubes
Bayer MaterialScience and Nanoledge, working with two sports equipment makers, have introduced nanotube-based composites in a new surfboard and in skis. The technology combines Bayer's carbon nanotubes and Nanoledge's epoxy resins to produce composites with improved mechanical and thermal properties. Founded in 2001, Nanoledge is a spin-off of France's National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).
