N12 NanoStitch® is added during composite lay-up to reinforce the interlaminar region. NanoStitch has demonstrated a 30% increase in interlaminar fracture toughness during third-party testing. NanoStitch® is compatible with industry-standard composite manufacturing processes and requires no special tools.
N12 Surface Layer System™ (SLS)
Improve in-plane thermal and electrical conductivity using N12’s Surface Layer System™. It’s perfect for surface curing and deicing applications. Combine it with NanoStitch® placed in-between fiber plies to enhance mechanical properties and add functionality while significantly reducing de-bonding and delamination in critical areas, such as the leading edge of a wing.

Through a series of technical partnerships with global manufacturers of prepreg carbon fiber and resin films, N12 is developing compatible product carriers to enable seamless integration of N12 NanoStitch® VACNT forests into industrialised production of thermoset and thermoplastic composite components. This includes a series of prepreg formulations with our N12 VACNTs surface embedded, insertion options for resin films and foils embedded with N12 VACNTs compatible with HP-RTM and vertical and horizontal infusion processes, and longer-term thermoset PEEK films embedded with N12 VACNTs. These partnerships will allow user groups to choose from a range of world-class suppliers carrying industrial volumes of N12 products and delivering jointly, through proven supply channels, a technically-optimized range of quality guaranteed products.
