Thanks I looked all over their site, but couldnt seem to find much more info. From what I understand and speaking with someone I know who has a degree
in materials science from Rice which is where the nanotube was discovered, buckeypaper wouldn't be a true composite if it's only made from c60
carbon molecules. I have heard of a buckeyball which is like a tiny geodesic dome made from carbon atoms, and a nanotube from what I understand is
basically an elongated version of a buckeyball. Maybe this buckeypaper is multiple buckeyballs joined together which begin to form a sheet like paper?
