Today we announced another series of issued patents that protect our "structural plating on plastic" Nanovate NP platform. This approach is used to create lightweight, structural, EMI and magnetic shielded housings for electronics using an injection molded, machined, or rapid prototyped polymer with a structural Nanovate metal electroplated cladding on the outer surface.

MuMetal and other high nickel content specialty metal alloys are commonly used for high performance magnetic shielding (aka ELF shielding or H-Field shielding) applications, where high magnetic permeability is important in achieving the maximum magnetic attenuation performance. This is in contrast to high frequency EMI shielding where a merely conductive coating, like silver or copper, will suffice.
Integran Technologies reached a big milestone recently by having our quality systems, which include the production of our high performance electroplated Nanovate metals, certified to the AS9100C:2009 standard. With aerospace manufacturing of a variety of products enabled with our Nanovate metals in our future, pursuing this certification was an easy decision.
This months Canadian Chemical News features an interview with Gino Palumbo, our CEO and President, regarding Integran's nanocrystalline metal (nanometal) electroplating and the history behind it.
