Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF) body
The CF-602f NCF uses a body design that incorporates NCF material. This resin contains nylon, fiberglass, piezoelectric ceramic particles, carbon powder to make the ultimate damping material. This is injected into the rhodium-plated copper contacts and treated α (alpha).
Used in some Furutech products, NCF is a special crystalline material with “active” properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static electricity. Secondly, it converts thermal energy into far infrared. Furutech combines this material with nanometric ceramic particles and carbon powder for their piezoelectric damping properties.
Cryogenic and demagnetization α (Alpha) process
Using state-of-the-art technology and materials, Furutech has developed a two-step process that significantly improves the performance of the conductive material. The treatment starts during the manufacturing process with a deep cryogenic step of all metal parts. Using refrigerants such as liquid N2 or He, Furutech reaches temperatures between -196°C and -250°C. The treated parts change their molecular structure, relieving internal stresses. The molecules bond more tightly together, and the overall structure becomes more stable. This results in improved electrical conductivity for better signal transmission.
The second step of the process exposes these same parts to the patented demagnetization treatment, optimized to act on the entire material and further improve conductivity.
