Metal Coated Veils & Mats
Our metal coated materials include nickel coated
carbon and copper & nickel coated
carbon veils and mats. These can be used in a broad range
of applications to deliver properties including EMI shielding and
We offer a unique level of control over the properties of our
metal coated materials as the fibres are produced 'in-house' via
electroless plating and electroplating technologies. This means
that the type and quantity of the metals and alloys applied to the
fibres can be designed and closely controlled to meet specific
As part of our Optiveil™ and Optimat® ranges our metal
coated materials are also suitable for use in all major composite
fabrication techniques, they demonstrate excellent resin uptake and
are compatible with most resin systems.

- Metal coated carbon veils and mats can used for EMI shielding,
providing protection for avionics and electronics.
metal coated carbon veils also provide multifunctionality.
Delivering a high quality surface finish in combination with
properties such as conductivity and EMI shielding.
- The thermal conductivity of our metal coated veils and mats
also makes them suitable for use in heat sink and thermal
- Metal coated veils and mats are also suitable for use in
resistive heating applications, such as de-icing of aircraft and
Our veils and mats are available in rolls from as narrow as 5 mm
up to 1650 mm in width. We also offer the capability to supply
materials in sheeted form or as cut shapes. Please contact us
to learn more our materials and capability, we would welcome the
opportunity to discuss your specific requirements.
