Pyrograf Products, Inc. has pioneered the development of quality control methodologies for the commercial scale production of stacked-cup carbon nanotubes, also known as carbon nanofiber. The company recently consolidated 15 years of carbon nanotube quality control experience and expertise into a quality management system and was granted ISO 9001:2008 certification.

ISO 9001 provides a suite of proven business and quality management techniques to efficiently and effectively operate a successful business. Pyrograf Products developed its quality management system according to ISO standards over a one year period and then underwent a thorough analysis of its policies and procedures conducted by Eagle Registrations, Inc.

Carbon Nanofiber Reactors

Eagle has a long standing, excellent reputation in the Dayton, OH area and is an ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) accredited registrar. Certification through Eagle to ISO 9001:2008 ensures consistent quality and continual improvement of products to provide an added sense of confidence in Pyrograf-III carbon nanofiber.

“ISO certification provides an internationally recognized means for us to communicate Pyrograf’s commitment to quality and continuous improvement to our customers. It is a significant step forward for us and we are very pleased to provide this level of quality assurance in our process and product.” – David Burton, General Manager Pyrograf-III is a patented, highly graphitic, low-cost stacked-cup carbon nanotube with properties approaching the theoretical values of graphite in almost every performance characteristic.

Pyrograf-III stacked-cup carbon nanotubes are a highly pure product with over 99.9% fibrous material and very low metal concentrations. Pyrograf Products, located in Cedarville, OH, was incorporated in 1996 and has since grown to become the world’s leading producer of stacked-cup carbon nanotubes with an annual capacity of 50,000 lbs per year. Pyrograf-III stacked-cup carbon nanotubes are currently being used worldwide to provide unmatched mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties in polymeric composites.
