Q:
What would your design or feature "wish list" be for this product?
17 answers
Answers:
1. Don't have much info on CNTs now. 2. I have seen all desired properties for paints and coatings. Entrepreneurs find it difficult to find right team of technical people to guide them in their entrepreneurship journey. Being an owner of newly started venture for nanotech based products I have gone through those difficulties. Also money is like blood for business so VC fundings for nanotech ventures should be inspired. 3. Cost should be reasonable and the entrepreneurs / people should work on quality aspect of products.

Answers:
Use a resource that is vendor neutral such as nanolandglobal.com where a wide field of experts and application experience can be utilized for the benefit of your specific nano project. Don't compromise on safety. Don't depend on the first website claiming to be an expert. Most are simply marketing companies with a nano focus.
~Dermott Reilly, Engineering Consultant, London, UK
You don't need very much product when applying...once coated move onto next area...there is no need to multi coat. If a spot or area is missed, it is easy to spot touch up as the nano molecules will bond to existing molecules.
~Mike K, President, Toronto, Canada
See the applications, it might happen that same properties can be obtained with the bulk, or it is most necessary to use them to get higher performance.
~Dr. David Jacob, Research & Development, Haifa, Israel
Be sure to know what you need with respect to particle size or surface area and to use the correct tools to measure these parameters.
~Vice President, Pharmaceutical Research, Bethlehem, PA
Check out the Kavali Foundations for current developments and for usage applications.
~Rob A, Project Manager - Prospective Inventor, Ravenna, OH
Do not consider the initial cost, consider the final cost and the end result.
~Emiliana E, Research & Development, Quezon city, Philippines
Thorough research, to know what you're looking for, reliable sources
