Nickel coated fibers elegantly add electrical conductivity and shielding performance to composite systems. Our coated composite fibers present an ultimate combination of low density, high strength, toughness, and high conductivity.

Precision Coated and Converted Fibers (PC2F) are a highly uniform short fiber format, in lengths ranging from 2 mm to 150 micrometers. Our Precision Converted Fibers provide our customers and partners with a high-performance conductive and structural additive that is both lighter and longer than typical nickel coated graphite additive formats. With a wide range of available nickel coating levels and lengths, our easily dispersible high uniformity conductive PC2F products are perfectly suited for conductive coatings, gaskets, elastomers, sealants, and adhesives. We have also developed a number of patented approaches in applications that benefit from PC2F - inquire for licensing opportunities.
Our longer length converted and sized conductive nickel coated carbon fiber staple is available with a range of nickel coating levels and sizing chemistries, in converted lengths from 3 mm to 24 mm. This format is primarily used as a high performance structural and conductive additive for thermosets & thermoplastics, and is also used in conductive nonwovens.
We make trial quantities of selected products available online to help our customers qualify and evaluate products in advance of commercial supply agreements.
