Boron nitride nanotubes have a wide range of applications, including aerospace, national defense industry, advanced manufacturing, clean energy, biomedicine, and so on. They are core additives for the manufacture of high-temperature structural materials, strong and tough wave transmitting materials, insulating and thermal conductive materials, and neutron radiation resistant materials.
Globally, only four companies in the United States, Australia, and South Korea have successfully achieved mass production technology for boron nitride nanotubes, with a production capacity of only kilograms. The low production capacity makes boron nitride nanotube products expensive, with an average price of $1000 per gram, which also limits the development and application of this composite material.
SHPJ Advanced Materials Technology Corporation is the fifth high-tech enterprise in the world and the first in China to engage in the research, development, production, and sales of high-performance boron nitride nanotubes and composite materials.
The company's technical team is led by national talents from the Institute of Nanomaterials, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the School of Modern Engineering and Applied Sciences, Nanjing University. It is composed of multiple doctors at home and abroad. Over the past decade, it has been rooted in scientific research on the growth mechanism of boron nitride nanotubes and applied research on macro production, realizing the batch controllable preparation of boron nitride nanotubes, filling a technological gap in this field in China.
After the launch of the boron nitride nanotube production line, large-scale production has been achieved. Through the integration and large-scale transformation of equipment, as well as the upgrading and transformation of the feeding and receiving system, the annual production capacity of boron nitride nanotubes will exceed tons, meeting the requirements for the research and development of composite materials in advanced manufacturing, semiconductor and clean energy, and large-scale industrial applications.
