Metcovery is actively engaged in the testing of Covetic materials. Covetic refers to carbon composite materials that are presented to Metcovery by inventors as new metal materials. We provide the equipment and experience to test and analyze these previously undefined composites to characterize and document new characteristics of these metallic based materials.
Inventors presenting Covetic materials are attempting to create resource materials that may be better thermal and electrical conductors, or products that are less likely to corrode than existing raw metals. Metcovery can facilitate the discovery and quality control of metals submitted by inventors. Our superior analysis and metal testing procedures, provide documented results that can be recreated and confirmed by other testing facilities. Upon completion of our testing, the percentage of carbon content can be verified on a consistent basis. Covetic materials will provide both industry and military applications for future use and consistent development.
Have you ever wondered how Teflon (tetraflouroethylene), Post-it Notes, and Covetics were developed? Were they the result of intense years of research for a particular result or ?? All of these life changing materials were the result of Unintended Consequences.
Covetics name comes from the combination of one of the possible results of how the polymer backbone and the metallic backbones combine. It is thought that the two dissimilar materials share a common electron bond and once they are bonded together valently, they do not separate. The name comes from a variation of Co-Valent Plastic and Metal combinations. Metcovery II is actively working with one of the inventors to now enhance the original material with all its attributes into new enhanced versions of the base Covetic materials.
Covetics have very unusual attributes. One of the inventors stated that due to the increase through put of Covetic materials versus his standard materials, he was able to increase his production on two metal extruders to the equivalent output of three metal extruders, with no additional labor or equipment!
Covetics have an increase in thermal conductivity in certain applications, an increase in electrical conductivity, the molecules when extruded appear to align in the 1,1,1 configuration in 80% of the molecules, and importantly, some of the Covetics are highly resistant to salt water and some of the Covetic materials do not tarnish.
Covetics currently has seven patents and twenty-two patents applied for or pending on different materials.
Metcovery II is instrumental in adding to the research of Covetic materials.
