View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
Composite materials having a multi-wall carbon nanotube content of from 4 to 15% by weight, based on total weight of the composite, are produced from a dispersion of multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and a fiber reinforcing material in a carrier fluid which is processed to form a shaped article that may then be infused with a liquid polymer or polymer-forming mixture to form the composite.
