A simple and cost effective method for strengthening copper wires, contacts and other mechanincal elements by the addition of nanoparticles to the bulk metal during production.
Primary Application Area: Materials, Chemical
Technology Development Status: Prototype
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: This process is simple, inexpensive and robust. Importantly, it does not require any refitting within metal foundries.The target market for our technology benefit is for cast copper parts which is currently around $60B. The types of parts which will significantly benefit from this technology include, electric motors, high power conductors, and transformers
