NTI is presently the world's only commercial producer of sheet, tapes and conductors and yarns comprised of high concentrations of CNT fibers and is the only aerospace- and defense-qualified macro-CNT producer on the market.
Over the past 5 years, the Company has served the needs of most of US armed services and supporting agencies including Army, Navy, Air Force, NASA and other agencies. US Department of Defense customers seek to use NTI's products to strengthen and lighten protective armor, and—like commercial aviation customers--leverage electrical and thermal properties. Increased performance at lighter weight saves fuel, and enables increased payload. Unlike the metals that its products replace, the Company's carbon structures are not compromised by corrosion, radiation and fatigue.
The Company's products have been designated by the US Department of Defense (DoD) as "essential to the national defense."
