Fibril BNNT™ (Boron Nitride Nanotubes) will be the basis for industry game changing revolutionary new materials and processes.

- Ultra lightweight aerospace structures: polymer and metal matrix composites with unprecedented strength, even at high temperatures
- Membranes, filters and catalyst: energy enhancements from filtering salt water to high temperature filters and thermal conductors
- Killing cancer: already lab results for significant enhancement of irreversible electroporation
- Winning sports equipment: the most advanced materials where weight, strength and endurance count

Key Fibril BNNT™ properties include:
- Matches strength of Carbon Nanotubes (CNT); BNNT and CNT are the strongest two fibers that will ever be made
- Actually fibril, i.e. few wall very very long tubes (this has net yet been achieved for CNT in any quantity and may never be achieved)
- Maintain strength to over 900°C; CNT start losing strength at 400°C
- Thermally very conductive
- Electrically an insulator
- White/clear
- Functionizable
- Possibly no cytotoxic effects

Discovery & Innovation
- Science --> the few wall novel materials with their unique chemistry will be the basis for scientific discoveries on the same scale as has taken place with CNT.
- Product R&D --> the first few tests with compositing and biomedicine indicate that Fibril BNNT™ can be used for making innovative products that will make global market impacts.
- Game changing products --> recent discoveries will result in the materials soon becoming available at prices and quantities that support long term investment for profitable products.

BNNT, LLC's goal is to provide the raw and purified Fibril BNNT™ and Fibril BxCyNz for science, product R&D and game changing products.
