How do you cut carbon nanotube film?

CNT film is highly aligned from end to end and can be successfully cut with very simple tools such as a razor blade.

Due to the highly aligned nature of CNT films, they are hard to cut to length.

when a clean cut is required, using a sharp razor blade you can press the blade into a sacrificial surface under the film/tape and lightly saw back and forth to slice the film leaving a clean cut.

Alternatively, if laser equipment is available you can cut the film using a standard co2 laser. 

20w should be enough to cut most films offered in our store. 

Please see video below for a quick demonstration on how to cut CNT film using a razor blade
