Applied Nanotech Composite Program To Be Presented At Army Science Conference

AUSTIN, Texas, July 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Applied Nanotech Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:APNT) announced that work related to improving the ballistic performance of E-glass composite panels using carbon nanotubes performed in collaboration with the U.S. Army Engineer Research Development Center – Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL) was selected for presentation at the 27 th Army Science Conference (ASC). The goals of the 27th ASC are to enable Army and DOD leaders, Congress and the public to understand the scope of the Army's science and technology (S&T) activities in support of the Army and the Nation, and to strategically communicate the S&T community's efforts to rapidly develop technologies that will enhance the capabilities of the Current Force while enabling the Future Force.

"The Army Science Conference features presentations that are judged as best among those submitted. We are pleased that ERDC-CERL chose to submit our project as a topic and to be part of the team selected to present the results of our efforts in improving ballistic panel performance using nanocomposite materials" says Dr. Zvi Yaniv, President of Applied Nanotech, Inc.

Ballistic panels are finding increased use as a component in layered protective systems used as fragmentation layers to prevent shrapnel and projectiles from penetrating into areas occupied by troops. A ballistic panel is a composite material made from woven fiberglass fabrics and polymer materials. An improved composite panel material with better bullet resistance to achieve similar performance with a lighter weight panel would benefit the US Army by lowering the weight and volume of material needed to protect critical infrastructure, both domestically and abroad. The team of researchers from US Army ERDC and Applied Nanotech, Inc. will present preliminary results on their effort to improve the ballistic performance of composite panels by incorporating carbon nanotubes in the composite polymer resin. The work is still in progress but the initial results show promise of improved ballistic performance.
