Chinese market opens up for Carbodeon Nanodiamonds

Carbodeon granted Chinese Patent for Nanodiamond-containing Thermoplastic Thermal Compounds

 

Helsinki, Finland - 4th December 2017

European nanodiamond producer Carbodeon has been granted a Chinese patent,
number ZL201380050518.X, for its technology which enables detonation-synthesised
diamond particles (nanodiamonds) to be combined with polymers for use in fields such
as personal electronics, LED lighting, automotive components and machine tools. The
grant is a continuation to patents granted in the USA and Finland and by the European
Patent Office (EPO).

“China is now the biggest component manufacturing market in the world. This patent
opens up this vast market for us though our local representatives Hangzhou Rayoung
Trading Ltd,” said Dr Vesa Myllymäki, CEO of Carbodeon.
Diamonds exhibit the highest known thermal conductivity and electrical insulation of
any material, allowing their use within electronics devices including cell phones, LED
lighting, automotive parts and E-mobility.

“As we are able to tailor the detonation nanodiamond surface to match the parent
materials in the polymer compound, a coupling effect and lowered thermal resistance
can be achieved with astonishingly low nanodiamond concentrations,” said Dr
Myllymäki.

“Carbodeon technologies allow its customers, now including in China, to push the
current performance barriers, whether that’s to enhance a device’s performance only or
to allow the manufacture of lower weight E-mobility components with simultaneously
excellent mechanical and thermal properties,” said Mr. Seppo Savolainen, Chairman of
the board of directors of Carbodeon.
