Greg, I tried to get more info on this product, including price differentials, but the company declined to divulge any more details.

Thanks Ann.  Did you get any feeling on the incremental cost for this material? (does the increase in strength have a cost premium?)

I was surprised, also, at that figure. OTOH, from what I've read of carbon nanotubes and what they can do, I shouldn't be. They're also being investigated by a handful of companies, including this one, for making much stronger carbon composites.

60% increase in strength over similar adhesives is very significant.  I would imagine this improvement, along with good vibration damping properties would help make this product especially attractive for aerospace and automotive applications as stated in the article.
