Carbon nanotubes eliminate manufacturing woe

Carbon nanotubes in polypropylene prevents "die-swell" as the liquid polymer exits an extruder. Result will be a much quicker time-to-market for new products. Currently manufacturers must make numerous trial-and-error adjustments for each die and each type of material. The nanotubed doped material is much more predictable.
