Hot Disk AB is dedicated solely to facilitating its clients’ thermal transport property measurements. Utilizing the groundbreaking and recently ISO-certified TPS (Transient Plane Source) technique, Hot Disk instruments accurately ascertain the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity of a vast range of materials from single transient recordings. We have claimed considerable market share from competitors employing older and more limited techniques in recent years.
Hot Disk AB develops and provides equipment for measuring and testing thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity. With our equipment, testing thermal properties is easy, fast and non-destructive.
Knowing the thermal properties of materials or devices is crucial when designing any application where heating or cooling is a factor. Being able to readily acquire this information is important for designers, engineers and scientists alike.
Examples for Applications:
Anisotropy: Modern batteries (Li-Ion) have drastically different thermal ¬conductivities in different directions. Simple and accurate ¬measurement procedure with Hot Disk sensors. Hot Disk can perform anisotropic measurements on modern, Li-Ion batteries with a regular stack structure. The stack structure can be either cylindrical stack, or a plane stack structure.

Thomas Swan & Co. Ltd. is an independent chemical manufacturing company. With offices and warehousing in the UK, USA and China and a global network of distributors, we service the domestic and international markets and export to over 80 countries worldwide.
Founded in 1926 in Consett, in the North East of England still home to our manufacturing facilities Thomas Swan today produces over 100 products and offers an experienced and flexible manufacturing service.
Our independence has enabled us to take an innovative approach to chemical manufacturing. Working closely with leading universities we have developed cutting-edge technologies including the world’s first continuous-phase supercritical facility and the UK’s first commercial-scale carbon nanotube plant.
Whilst we are now a leading supplier to the international chemicals market, we have retained the flexibility and customer-focused approach of a family business which enables us to offer outstanding service and support to customers ranging from major multinationals to small start-ups.
At Thomas Swan we have always searched for new and exciting technologies. Building on our core competency in chemistry, over the years we have founded or invested in many different early stage companies. From our beginnings in road surfacing, we have diversified into a wide range of businesses including photonics (Cambridge Photonics Ltd.), protein separation (Bioprocessing Ltd.), flat screen displays (Screen Technology Ltd.), contract research (BioDynamics Research Ltd.), MOCVD reactors (Thomas Swan Scientific Equipment Ltd.) and hydrogen storage (Cella Energy Ltd.).
Our Business comprises three divisions: (1) Performance Chemicals, (2) Custom Manufacture and (3) Advanced Materials.
Our Advanced Materials division is dedicated to the supply of high performance materials which deliver value for our customers in new and emerging markets, from printable electronics, memory devices and energy storage to advanced coating and composite systems.
We were early investors in carbon nanotube technologies, forming a strong collaboration with the University of Cambridge to develop a scalable process for the manufacture of carbon nanotubes. The carbon nano-materials business was launched in 2004, and has continued to add capabilities. Today, Thomas Swan Advanced Materials can manufacture kilogramme quantities of both single-wall and multi-wall carbon nanotubes. A particular strength is our ability to manufacture high quality single-wall carbon nanotubes; our Elicarb® SW products.
Angstron is the first advanced materials company to offer large quantities of ultra-thin, pristine nano-graphene platelets (NGPs). Angstron currently has the world’s largest graphene production capacity at approximately 300 metric tons per year. This capacity means that Angstron can fill orders suitable for large scale industrial and commercial applications. This production scale also means that Angstron is significantly reducing production cost barriers with its high performance nano-graphene solutions. A new 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility, based in Dayton, Ohio, allows our company to continue its research and development efforts while providing small to large batch processing and production.
By combining R&D with in-depth engineering, application knowledge and real world experience, Angstron not only has the technology customers need, but the capability to provide total turnkey solutions from application development and pilot quantities for test articles to scale-up for required production volumes.
The Angstron team is led by Dr. Bor Jang, a pioneer in advancing the field of nano-graphene platelets. In addition to NGPs, Dr. Jang is a leading expert in the research and development of low-cost carbon nanomaterials, batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells with more than 160 patents to his name.
Angstron’s scientists and specialists have more than 50 years of combined experience. We’ll help you harness the performance advantages of NGPs to create a next generation product that’s better. Our team will also walk you through each step of the process to find the most efficient, cost effective manufacturing methods and prepare for market entry.
