Advanced Conductor Designs (ACD) is a product development and product launch company that uses proprietary methodologies to produce Conductive Carbon Material (CCM) in wire form.

The Mission
  • Replace semi-precious metal with Conductive Carbon Material
  • Do it cleanly
  • Make it green

ACD's mission is to build Carbon Conductive Material (CCM) in wire form, replacing copper, aluminum, and steel, meeting or exceeding those products, while maintaining a clean manufacturing process. Our technology and methodology are proven and have been validated by third-party testing.

Structured Carbon Material

ACD is building a pilot production facility to provide wire for the Oil & Gas and Communication industries, as well as other customers.

Pilot Plant - Houston, TX

Structured Carbon Material

Our initial goal is to build production equipment to provide wire for the Oil and Gas industry, and for Communication.

Cleaner Manufacturing

CCM is a green product.

Unlike its competitors, ACD’s CCM production results in only in wire, water, and hydrogen for the generation of electricity.

Wire is ubiquitous

ACD produces wire that performs better than copper. Copper can be found in every commercial and residential building. It is also employed in electronics, automotive, and aviation applications, automotive, and aerospace.

ACD has produced a material to replace copper and other metallic wire with Conductive Carbon Material (CCM).

CCM is a direct replacement for copper in wire form

CCM Advantages

  • Lighter: 1/8th the weight of Cu results in easier installation
  • Stronger: 20x's copper tensile strength | 10x stronger than steel | Fatigue resistant
  • Hydrophobic: Will not ice-over | Eliminates damage from ice storms and wind-blown ablation
  • Thermal properties: Conducts heat | At high frequencies impedance lowers
  • Chemically inert
  • Lower infrastructure costs
  • Smaller form factor makes replacing legacy cables simpler

Industry Comparisons

  • The copper wire industry is $159 billion per annum
  • The aluminum wire industry is $22 billion per annum
  • The steel wire industry is $107 billion per annum

Data and Communication Wire

Carbon Conductor Material does not fatigue. Unlike metallic conductors which suffer from fatigue, CCM can be bent in tighter arcs making installation easier. Material costs are competitive copper but the costs to employ CCM are appreciably lower than traditional materials. CCM can be installed using similar tools and connectors.

At frequencies of MHz range, impedance is dramatically lower. Heat buildup and line loss is substantially lower. Longer runs are possible. Where a copper CAT5e runs can only efficiently operate to 150’, CCM could be run up to 1.5km. CCM can be terminated just like metallic conductors and its flexibility and pliability allow it to be bent double unlike copper.

CCM is not subject to corrosion in all naturally occurring environments, from deep sea applications to oil wells. No issues are found with dissimilar metals at connection points. CCM is inert and does not degrade over time.

Automotive and Aerospace Applications

Due to its lower weight, higher strength, and resistance to fatigue CCM, makes an ideal replacement for copper and aluminum wire. Any wire, wiring harness, or cabling application can be improved by substituting with CCM.

Conductive Carbon wire is a reality. ACD makes it possible.

CCM is produced by a continuous process arriving at the bottom of the stack. Densification of 26-gauge wire spooling for immediate use, consistent and uniform. CCM is conductive straight from the reactor.

The future of CCM is limitless

Today’s electrical current runs at 60Hz. In the future, at 1 MHz, in-line resistance drops substantially. This will reshape efficiencies, conservation, and cost. Every year 19.6 million tons of copper are produced for electronic components. CCM can replace metallic wire of all types.

Replacing copper, aluminum, and Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced will result in lighter weight, resulting in easier installation, improved grid design & reliability
