  • Publication number: 20180297319
    Abstract: A system that receives nanomaterials, forms nanofibrous materials therefrom, and collects these nanofibrous materials for subsequent applications. The system include a housing coupled to a synthesis chamber within which nanotubes are produced. A spindle may extend from within the housing, across the inlet, and into the chamber for collecting nanotubes and twisting them into a yarn. A body portion may be positioned at an intake end of the spindle. The body portion may include a pathway for imparting a twisting force onto the flow of nanotubes and guide them into the spindle for collection and twisting into the nanofibrous yarn. Methods and apparatuses for forming nanofibrous are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20180194950
    Abstract: An intumescent nanostructured material for thermal protection comprising a member including a plurality of nanostructured materials, and an intumescent material associated with the member and configured to react in the presence of a heat source to form a foam for thermally insulating the member from the heat source. The member may be a non-woven sheet, a woven sheet, a yarn, or a network, and may be configured to conduct thermal energy away from a heat source. A solution comprising a plurality of nanostructured materials, an intumescent material, and a solvent, wherein the solution has a viscosity suitable for coating or spraying onto a surface of a substrate. The solution may have a viscosity of about 3000 centipoise to about 6000 centipoise, and possibly less than about 1000 centipoise. The solution, when dried on the substrate, may form a thermally-protective coating on the substrate.
