We have been working on a similar process. 3Dimensional Engineering is
authorized to distribute a patented injection mold thermoplastic that has
20% - 25% better thermal conductivity of aluminium at 1/10th the weight.
This material was developed as an alternative for heat pump elements
to eliminate corrosion during operation.

> In the news: Poco Graphite is expanding its product base with

> Lab. The
> company is licensed to produce the patented carbon foam that has a

> or could
> displace heavy cooling fans, metallic fins and heat sinks in
> The materials were originally developed for the space program.
> I'm sure they won't charge much.......
> Does anyone know anything about this material? Such as how it is
> worked, molded, tooled, squirted or whatever? Sounds prrrettty
