Conductive Composites Commercialise CVD Coated Conductive Nonwovens

19 April 2012

Conductive Composites Company has developed and commercialised nickel chemical vapour deposition (CVD) coated nonwovens, with a manufacturing line expansion that doubles production capabilities.

According to Conductive Composites, the new product brings several advantages to the marketplace including:

  • CVD coated nonwovens are lighter, thinner, and more conductive than nonwovens that are made with conductive fibres. 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 much more competitive price and in a continuous roll format.

“We are pleased to announce the commercialisation of this new product,” said 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.”
