CHASM’s CNT Hybrids are being used for touchscreens and are in development for headlights and windshields.

Increasing driver safety can be done in numerous ways. Clearing the lens of headlights improves lighting. The increasing use of sensors used for driving safety requires technology to clear the glass in front of the sensors.
However, there has not been a specific technology designed for these tasks. CHASM Advanced Materials has developed AgeNT, a new category of transparent conductive materials known as CNT Hybrids as a solution for touch screens in harsh environments. The CNT Hybrids are a patented combination of silver nanowire (AgNW) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). CHASM works with companies to implement their custom transparent heaters using its materials.
These CNT Hybrids are already on the road, and the approach may also be useful for clearing the way for sensors to gather their data.
“The operational and safety standards used in the automotive industry are very demanding as consumer safety is paramount,” said Ken Klapproth, V
