Graphene Laboratories, Inc., has expanded the product line of the Graphene Supermarket (www.graphene-supermarket.com) to include a new Conductive Graphene Dispersion. The proprietary technology used to prepare the dispersion gives it a high conductivity while maintaining a low viscosity, making it superior to other options. The dispersion can be used for making graphene-based composite materials, inks, and coatings.
Graphene research and commercial applications often require liquid dispersions which are easily handled and mixed with other matrixes, and which can be applied to a variety of substrates. Researchers working with conductive dispersions often use Graphene Oxide, which is then reduced; dispersions made using this method are often considerably less conductive than pristine graphene.
Another option is to use graphene nanopowders in dispersions, for which there are a limited number of suitable organic solvents; this in turn affects the number of feasible applications for graphene nanopowder-based dispersions. In contrast to the aforementioned options, the proprietary technology used in production of our Conductive Graphene Dispersion allows for a higher graphene-load while maintaining a low-toxicity and easy handling.
Dr. Elena Polyakova, CEO of Graphene Labs, noted “our latest Dispersions are an important part of the expansion of graphene materials from R&D to commercial markets. This material is both useful for graphene research but is also one of few materials on the market today which is ready for select practical applications.”
When mixed, graphene nanoplatelets improve the mechanical strength, as well as the thermal and electrical conductivity of polymers. It is difficult, however, to mix the powdered form of graphene nanoplatelets with polymers. The Conductive Graphene Dispersion solves this problem by having a high load, being easy to handle, and easy to mix.
The Conductive Graphene Dispersion, being easily deposited on the surface of a substrate, forms an electrically conductive coating. For this reason, the Dispersion can be considered for the development of a variety of applications, including: as a conductive ink, Electromagnetic Interference Shielding (EMI), thin film batteries, and for heat sink compounds.
