VersarienCuآ™ is the result of innovative metallurgy research performed at the University of Liverpool’s Department of Engineering. It allows the creation of metallic materials with fine, open, interconnected pores which emulate structures that are commonly found in nature. This structural form permits thermal transfer levels that surpass anything that was previously possible.
