FiberGraf Materials LLC has developed nickel-coated graphite fibers for enhanced thermal and electrical conductivity.
The Nashport, Ohio, company claims the new GrafMat materials provide high EMI and RFI shielding at lower cost than competing products such as conventional nickel-coated carbon fiber and silver-coated additives. As well, they process fast and can be compounded at up to 65 percent by weight to replace multi-component formulas.
The two new grades have average particle sizes of 90 microns and 280 microns. For each product, particles are individually coated with 60 percent by weight nickel in a very thin layer to create a free-flowing powder, according to FiberGraf.
FiberGraf says it can tailor particle size distribution and the amount of nickel and even provide other metal coatings if required.
