Zyvex Performance Materials, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, USA, offers a number of carbon nanotube-enhanced products. Epovex is a line of high performance, carbon nanotube strengthened epoxy resins recommended for use in composite manufacturing processes such as filament winding, pultrusion, and hand lay-up. Epovex Adhesive is a new line of two-part carbon nanotube strengthened epoxy adhesives ideal for bonding laminate materials, as well as metals, woods, masonry, plastics, and rubber. Arovex is a high performance prepreg using Epovex resin.

ZPM and Composites One announced the distribution agreement at the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) conference in Seattle, Washington, USA, this week.

"The applications for nano-enhanced composites are growing and distribution is a key aspect of this developing market," comments Lance Criscuolo, President of Zyvex Performance Materials. "Composites One serves over 8000 customers in the high performance composites markets."

"Zyvex Performance Materials offers a collection of nano-enhanced products that can enhance the performance of composite materials that our customers routinely use," says Leon Garoufalis, President of Composites One. "After touring their facility, I was impressed that they have developed such technologically advanced materials, yet designed them to handle as easy and in the same way as traditional composites. Adding these products to our portfolio helps deliver the latest technology to our customers without asking them to adjust the way they do business."
