TorTech to manufacture carbon nanotube fibres for armor
Nov '10
Plasan Sasa Ltd. has proclaimed the emergence of a new company, TorTech Nano Fibers Ltd., in Israel to manufacture carbon nanotube fibres to be utilized for improving the quality of body armor as well as composite protection armor for vehicles. This joint venture enterprise is held by Plasan and University of Cambridge (UK) spin-out company Q-Flo (Cambridge, UK).

As per the contract, the sales as well as the marketing rights of defense-oriented materials are expected to be exclusively held by Plasan Sasa Ltd. whereas the rights for other prospective applications are likely to be retained by Q-Flo.

The carbon nanotubes manufactured by Q-Flo has the ability to modernize the defense sector by means of a new variety of lightweight, stretchable and extremely strong protective material. TorTech is expected to manufacture a carbon nanotube-based yarn which can be woven into the most powerful man-made material. Plasan is also likely to help the company to craft and manufacture a new variety of body as well as vehicle armor.

The technology is likely to be upgraded for large-scale industrial manufacturing. Currently, the fibre manufacturing capacity is only 1g per day.
