Furutech’s Pure Transmission Piezo Ceramic and Carbon series products feature a breakthrough construction technique. We create a unique material to fashion the products that combine two “active” materials: Nano-sized ceramic particles and powdered carbon. It seems that only nano-sized ceramic particles effectively couples with carbon powder. Nylon and fiberglass are incorporated as well forming an extremely effective, well damped, mechanically and electrically nonresonant material. Yes, we said electrically damped.
Piezoelectric effects are the key. Furutech’s breakthrough employs nano-sized polycrystalline ferroelectric ceramic particles that exhibit electro-generative properties; mechanical pressure creates an electrical charge forming a bridge between electrical and mechanical oscillation.
Carbon powder exhibits thermal-conductive characteristics that interact with the charged ferro-ceramic particles, converting their energy into heat that’s conducted away and released from the surface of the material!
These carefully chosen and tested “active” materials have a mechanical and electrical damping effect as it “interconverts” thermal, mechanical, and electrical energy for the finest Furutech Pure Transmission LP playback imaginable.
