ABOUT US

Our vision is to become one of the leading suppliers of nano-based materials and solutions for thermal management applications contributing to a sustainable society.

ABOUT US

SHT Smart High-Tech AB is a company focusing on producing new heat-dissipating materials reinforced with graphene with a focus on cooling electronics, processors, graphics cards, LEDs, and other heat-sensitive and heat-intensive products. This is something that is essential to be able to develop high-performance electronics that are smaller, faster and lighter with more functionality- in a sustainable way. We offer high-performance graphene-reinforced materials and associated process know-how. One example of our unique and innovative developments is our graphene-enhanced interface material “Thermal Interface Material”, called TIM, for electronics and power module cooling, which conducts heat efficiently both vertically and horizontally. TIM is found in our GT product series, which is available in different versions with different features.  

We sell our products to international world-leading companies. EU, USA, China, Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia are our top markets and our products are mainly used for integration in the telecom, computer and automotive industries.

VISION

Our vision is to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of nano-based solutions for all sorts of thermal management applications. And thereby making a real contribution to a sustainable society.

MISSION

Our mission is to sell materials, processing know-how and licenses in thermal management areas, with a high degree of automation.

OUR COMPANY HISTORY

SHT Smart High-Tech AB (SHT) was founded by Mr Johan Liu, a professor at Chalmers University of Technology Sweden in 2006. Since the start the company has carried out ground-breaking research which has laid a solid foundation for the development of our products, enabling the company to grow continuously. Another important aspect of the evolvement of SHT Smart High-Tech AB has been to create long-lasting relations with key business partners in Asia, Europe, and USA . Innovation has been at the core of the company since the very start and SHT Smart High-Tech AB is therefore also involved in several EU- and national innovation projects. Furthermore, SHT has recently set up a daughter company, Ruixi New Material High Tech Ltd in Shanghai, China for volume production of graphene dissipation pads for electronics in telecom, GPU, CPU and automotive industry. Today, SHT Smart High-Tech AB has its own manufacturing facility for volume-based production for graphene based thermal interface material in Sweden.

In the fall of 2021 SHT has also carried out an Initial Public Offering (IPO) on the Spotlight Stock Market. At the same time we issued an emission (worth 22 MSEK, equivalent to around 2,2 million Euro) which will be used to further strengthen the production facilities in Sweden and expand our sales and marketing team.
