Graphene nanotubes for automotive primers: conductivity, cost benefits and preserved light colors
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:
TUBALL™ graphene nanotubes are a versatile conductive agent offering strong performance on all key parameters
TUBALL™ nanotubes, applied at low dosages, allow the production of colorful and even light gray primers with an L-value as high as 75%.
In contrast to other conductive additives used for light-colored primers (e.g. conductive TiO2 or mica), TUBALL™ nanotubes can be applied at low dosages, providing cost efficiency.
Standard basecoat thickness regardless of color
The light colors of primers containing TUBALL™ nanotubes provide the opportunity to apply a thinner basecoat in comparison with primers containing other carbon conductive agents.
TUBALL™ MATRIX can be applied with widely used equipment.
Other benefits provided by TUBALL™ nanotubes for conductive primers:
- Clean production without carbon dust
- Low dosage gives greater flexibility in the final formulation
- Easy to apply and the low dosage makes the logistics less complex and more efficient.
