Goodfellow is pleased to announce the addition of two new filled grades of PLA monofilament. PLA monofilament filled with graphene and PLA monofilament filled with nanodiamond further complement the range of innovative materials aimed at the 3D printing market and are intended for use with the Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) / Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) additive manufacturing process.
Goodfellow recently provided high performance and advanced ceramics for a permanent exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
Spanning from the nineteenth century to present day, the exhibition displays decorative items as well as exploring the impact of ceramics on health and hygiene in domestic and medical settings.
Foils as thin as 0.00025mm can be produced from more than 50 pure metals and over 100 alloys, rolled or deposited in Goodfellow’s own production department. Our extensive catalogue range is complemented by custom production to exacting specifications, enabling us to work with our customers to meet both their R&D and production requirements.
Applications for foils are wide ranging and include their use in medical devices, aerospace technology, electronics, electromagnetic shielding, x-ray technology, energy and many other scientific and industrial fields.
Our team of technical specialists is available to advise on what is possible in many different materials, and what can be achieved with metals ranging from aluminium and titanium to rare earths like gadolinium and yttrium.
In addition to the above, Goodfellow also supplies:
Goodfellow was delighted to exhibit at the Museum of Air and Space during Paris Space Week earlier this spring, where the team enjoyed plenty of opportunities to meet new and existing customers. With more than 90 exhibitors, an international audience and 22 one-to-one meetings, the event was a resounding success.
The Goodfellow stand was busy with a lot of interest in the variety of our samples and our holographic periodic tables. New additions to the Goodfellow range such as Boron Nitride Nanotubes, C-Solder and Carbon Nanotubes were very popular with visitors to the stand.
Since Goodfellow supplies materials and finished machined components to customers in the Space sector, events like this offer a great chance for us to keep abreast of new developments and help to facilitate innovation and research.
Our materials were used by a London-based product designer with a passion for lighting, furniture and home accessories.
Jordan Keaney experimented with the ceramic foam materials we provided to create a beautiful side table he named ‘Coda’. Inspired by the tails of Venetian gondolas and the sea foam they float on, the layers of the table allow light to “perforate” the piece, creating stunning shadows. There’s even the added ability to store reading material between each layer, all atop a natural marble base.

We are pleased to announce the addition of Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) to our line of Boron Nitride products.
Whereas Carbon Nanotubes can be metallic or semiconducting, BNNTs are electrical insulators with bandgap of ~5.5 eV.
BNNTs demonstrate superior thermal and chemical stability compared to Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) and have 200,000 times higher thermal neutron absorption capacity than that of CNTs.
Applications include electrical insulation, reinforced ceramic materials for spacecrafts, high-temperature neutron detection sensors, piezoelectric sensors, drug delivery targets, etc.
