Metal foam triples cooling power

Written by: Versarien | Published:

Versarien is launching a novel, patented, open pore, metal foam, developed by the University of Liverpool, which combines extremely high thermal efficiency with mechanical strength and reduced weight. Initially focusing on porous copper products, Versarien intends to extend the technology to other materials, including aluminium, in the near future.

Formed with a lost carbonate sintering process (LCS), metal and carbonate powders are mixed together, then pressed and sintered before dissoluting to remove the carbonate mixer.
