NUCAP Energy, a division of NUCAP Industries, Inc., has significantly increased the efficiency of heat transfer in thermal systems and improved the capacity of thermal energy storage systems through the development of a new engineering facility.

NUCAP’s patented GRIPMetal™ technology is created using a non-extruding manufacturing method that maximizes the surface area of ​​the metal without adding weight by creating rows of adhesive hooks to create a strong, secure bond. This unique design allows manufacturers to produce smaller, lighter products that achieve unmatched structural and thermal performance. When used in composite materials, GRIPMetal™ significantly improves the structural strength and heat transfer performance of the material.

“On average, a NUCAP heat exchanger surface modification increases heat exchange efficiency by 40% to 100%,” said John Swift, Vice President of NUCAP Energy. However, new research from the University of York in Canada finds that GRIPMetal increases heat transfer efficiency by more than 100% in other thermal applications.

The advanced surface material is suitable for use in almost any heat exchanger and provides an ideal interface for any combination of gas, liquid, or solid heat transfer media. GRIPMetal™ provides efficient ways to cool and protect batteries, dissipate high thermal energy, and improve heat exchange rates between cooling circuits and electronic elements, leading to longer life and higher computing speeds of electronic devices.

Regarding GRIPMetal™ material, NUCAP strives to provide technical support and R&D to support businesses in a variety of industries with specific applications in mind. They currently serve the following industries with this versatile material technology:

  • Transportation
  • Aerospace
  • HVAC
  • Power Generation
  • A computer
  • Renewable Energy

NUCAP has a reputation for advancing the face of metallurgy through the development of advanced manufacturing technologies with the aim of creating a sustainable and efficient future by supporting innovation in all sectors. Working to create stronger, lighter, and smaller components using GRIPMetal™ material, NUCAP works with manufacturers to reduce costs and improve heat transfer and maintenance, transforming entire industries by changing the size, weight, and efficiency of existing products.
