June 08, 2022 — Delta Tecnic and Graphenest announced today that both companies entered a strategic partnership that will explore the commercialization of graphene-based polymer compounds with unprecedented electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding performance. This new product line has already a PVC material with extremely good electrical features that makes it suitable to be implemented as a remarkable EMI shielding solution in the cable industry.
The agreement brings together the expertise of Delta Tecnic as a masterbatch specialist for the cable & PVC industry and the knowledge of Graphenest around graphene & shielding applications.
“The combination between Graphenest technology and Delta Tecnic’s market expertise provides a strong platform to boost technological innovation in the cable industry”, says Eric Xirinachs, CEO of Delta Tecnic.
The cable industry is now able to use graphene-based shielding solutions to replace the conventional heavy, rigid, and time and energy-intensive old-metal braiding and foils.
“Graphene, the most effective material for electromagnetic shielding purposes, is being in-house produced by Graphenest towards the formulation of graphene-based polymeric compounds that can provide high levels of shielding effectiveness of microwaves and millimeter waves (5G/6G) frequencies”, says Bruno Figueiredo, Graphenest’s co-CEO.
About Delta Tecnic
Delta Tecnic was born in 1982 to commercialize raw materials in the plastic, cable, ink, paint, and cosmetic industries with the distribution of leading brands worldwide. With more than 40 years of experience and a total of 20,000 m2 in facilities, with three production plants, two of them located in Barcelona (Spain) and one of them in Querétaro (Mexico), Delta Tecnic has grown to position itself as a company leader among Trading companies in Spain, as well as one of the main producers of Masterbatch for the cable and PVC industries globally.
Graphenest S.A. was founded in 2015 and its activity is centered on the development and implementation of the next generation of graphene-based EMI shielding products. Graphenest is producing graphene through a in-house proprietary cost-efficient clean technology that allows the formulation of products with unparallel levels of shielding performance at high and very high frequencies.
