Graphene nanotubes for thermoset fiberglass composites: conductivity with maintained color and durability

TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes are applied via easy-to-use TUBALL™ MATRIX, which is a line of additives based on polymer-carriers and pre-dispersed TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes.

Choose the TUBALL™ MATRIX product based on the carrier medium that suits your formulation:

Target system

Vinyl ester and polyester


Additive carrier

Plasticizer + stabilizing agent 


Triethylene glycol dimethacrylate + ammonium salt of polyolefin-based derivatives 

Ethoxylated alcohol


Increased performance of anti-static and conductive thermoset fiberglass composites

Full range of resistivity while preserving color

Results for epoxy resin D.E.R. 351. Samples include 5 wt.% of TiO2 as a whitening agent. ASTM D257

Compatible with key manufacturing technologies



Filament winding


Hand layup

Easy to apply

TUBALL™ MATRIX anti-static masterbatches can be processed with standard equipment that is widely used in the coatings industry:

Standard single-shaft high-speed mixer

25 min total dilution time

Instant quality control with a grindometer to reach particle size ≤ 15 µm

Other benefits provided by TUBALL™ nanotubes for thermoset fiberglass composites:

  • Limited impact on viscosity
  • Easy to apply and the low dosage makes the logistics less complex and more efficient
  • Conductivity without insulation “hot spots”

Special case

Anti-static filament-winding applications:

Simplified production process

Compared with carbon veil or roving, TUBALL™ nanotubes require lower labor costs and allow conductive pipes and tanks to be produced using the same process as for non-conductive applications. There are thus additional cost savings for producers.
