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.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
