“FIBRIL nanotubes are used to make statically dissipative plastic compounds that are molded into a variety of automotive parts where toughness and ‘Class A’ surface are important. External body parts (i.e.. fenders, door handles, mirror housings) that are electrostatically painted. FIBRIL nanotubes are a key component of resins that are designed for on-line painting of plastic body panels.”



"outside diameter of the tube is approximately 10 nm and the length is over 10 microns"
