Industry News | November 1, 2014 | By:

Dr. Marcin Otto of Netherlands-based Teijin Aramid and Prof. Matteo Pasquali from Rice University in Texas won the Paul Schlack Man-Made Fibers Prize for corporate-academic partners in fiber research. Granted by the European Man-made Fibers Association, the prize was awarded for the development of a new generation of super fibers using carbon nanotubes. The fibers combine high thermal and electrical conductivity, as seen in metals, with the flexibility, robust handling and the strength of textile fibers. This new generation of super fibers is spurring innovation in industries including aerospace, healthcare, automotive and smart clothing.
