Baseball bats and the future of nanotechnology

EASTON SPORTS WINS INNOVATIVE PRODUCT AWARD AT NANO 50 Easton’s Stealth Comp CNT Bat is Recognized for Its Usage of Advanced Technological Material

Easton Sports’ Stealth Comp CNT baseball bat -- VAN NUYS, Calif. – The Nano 50 Awards, which are voted on by a distinguished panel of judges from the science and technology industries, listed Easton Sports’ Stealth Comp CNT baseball bat as one of the top 50 products that will have a significant impact on the future of nanotechnology.
The Nano 50 Awards, which are presented by Nanotech Briefs at the NASA Tech Brief’s National Nano Engineering Conference, presented Easton Sports with the ‘Product Award’ under the ‘Materials’ category, according to Matt Arndt, Easton Sports’ senior vice president of baseball/softball.
“This award is a testament that the technology we apply to our products is real; it’s not just claims and jargon,” Arndt commented. “Carbon Nanotube Technology is a major advancement in baseball and softball bats and we’re so proud of our research and development team for all the days, months and years they put into developing it. It was a long and difficult process, but the results are off the charts. The performance and productivity of the Comp CNT bats are the best in the industry.”
Nanotechnology, or sometimes called molecular technology, is a broad field of applied science and technology focused on working with the structure of matter on a scale smaller than whatever seemed imaginable. Nanotechnology is breaking strides in product materials, medical and bio-technology, electronics, and in Easton Sports’ case – sports equipment.

The Stealth Comp CNT bats feature Carbon Nanotube Technology (CNT) that is made exclusively possible by Zyvex NanoSolve® materials. Unlike the aluminum bat that had the same strength and stiffness in all directions of the carbon fibers, Easton’s R&D team reinforced the carbon fibers by strategically placing nanotubes in the gaps to create the widest ‘sweet spot’ ever. CNT replaces what traditionally was only resin in aluminum bats. CNT is sixteen times stronger than steel and one-billionth of a meter in size; CNT perhaps is the strongest fiber that will ever be made.

Hi
I am Javier, the founder of Trendirama.com, the fastest growing community of amateur writers writing about The Future of everything. We would like to invite you to join us and write an article on the website, perhaps "The future of Nanotechnology" or on anything you are passionate about...
It is up to you, you choose the subject.
You would get a link back when you link to your own article, if you wish.
(You can even re-use some of your already published material, in the last part of the article, "your view and comments". That would save you time and still be interesting for readers.)
And yes, I know you may not have the time. Theoretically, none of us do...;)

Failing that, if you like the project and you can help us spread the word -even if you don't write- it would be great.
Since we are starting, any help is appreciated.

By making this valuable information available online for free, I truly believe we are helping to make the world a better place.
And you could do your bit for the world too, by sharing what you know, as we already do.

Please let us know if you link or mention us, so we can link you back too if you wish.
You can even use our valuable articles on your websites, provided that you link back. Any better offer than that?! :)

Look forward to hearing from you or reading your interesting article at Trendirama!

Best regards
Javier Marti
