Conductive Composites commercializes nickel-coated nonwovens

The nickel chemical vapor deposition-coated nonwovens are said to provide performance characteristics that match or exceed sheets of carbon nanomaterials.

Conductive Composites Co. (Heber City, Utah, USA) on April 11 announced the development and commercialization of nickel chemical capor deposition (CVD)-coated nonwovens, with a manufacturing line expansion that doubles production capabilities. This new product is said to bring several advantages to the marketplace:

  • CVD-coated nonwovens are lighter, thinner and more conductive than nonwovens that are made with conductive fibers. Using the CVD method, every external surface is coated and protected, and the resistivity of the sheet can be engineered to very low levels.
  • Performance characteristics match or exceed sheets of carbon nanomaterials at a more competitive price and in a continuous roll format.

“We are pleased to announce the commercialization of this new product,” says Nathan Hansen, president. “CVD-coated nonwovens have clear performance advantages, and we are excited to be able to provide this material in increased volumes for both our existing and developing markets. CVD-coated nonwovens bring game-changing performance and significant cost savings to our customers. Our investment in capacity expansion and commercialization reinforces our commitment to bringing competitive materials to the marketplace.”
