Carbon nanotube additive research. Workers at a lab making an additive mix containing single-walled carbon nanotubes used to add strength and conductivity to other materials. Single-walled carbon nanotubes are 1-atom-thick graphene sheets, which are extremely stiff, flexible and conduct electricity. Therefore this new universal additive can change materials by increasing their thermal or electrical conductivity, as well as strengthening their physical and mechanical properties.
