Conductive Composites Company, Heber City, UT, has commissioned a new production line for high performance nickel Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) coated fibers in Green River, UT. This new coating line more than doubles capacity for nickel coated fibers, and improves the supply chain and pricing of nickel coated fibers, according to the company.
In parallel, Conductive Composites has developed nickel CVD coated aramid fibers. The CVD coating process provides a highly ductile and uniform metal coating, with better handling characteristics than electroplated fibers in a high strength lightweight format.
“We are excited to announce the commission of this new production line,” said George Hansen, founder and chief technical officer. “This new line proves our commitment to expanding our capability to serve growing commercial markets. The addition of CVD coated aramids to our commercial product lines opens up new possibilities for our high performance conductive fibers. We look forward to continuing to bring enabling materials to the conductivity and shielding markets.”
Conductive Composites creates materials and technologies that enable electrical conductivity and electromagnetic capabilities in composites and plastics. The company’s products are key ingredients that deliver performance for proven applications. Materials are manufactured by proprietary methods on commercial grade production lines in ISO:9001 compliant facilities.
