  • Ultra- light EMC shielding material with a bulk density of 0.01g/cm³ using carbon nanotubes.
  • This materials can be tuned to adjust the shielding performance in accordance with device frequencies.
  • Excellent workability enables the creation of 3D structures.


  • Aerospace
  • Wireless

Detailed use:

Spacecraft (artificial satellites, space probes, etc.), Electric aircraft (drones, eVTOL vehicles, etc.), 5G/6G application-related devices (mobile base stations, etc.), Industrial equipment (robots, AGVs, etc.), In-vehicle devices (millimeter wave radar, various sensors, etc.), VR/AR devices, etc.



By combining our thermosetting polymer formulation compounding design technology based on carbon nanotubes with environmental test technology and know-how assuming various use cases, we have achieved both lightness and excellent electromagnetic shielding and absorption. Ultra-light EMC shielding material contributes to weight reduction of equipment and improvement of communication quality.
