Haydale reports how its proprietary HDPlas® technology has been used to create functionalised Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNPs) that have been incorporated into a functional graphene ink, which has been developed for screen printing. The ink has been created with area printing applications in mind.
A recent report in Solid State Technology details how a screen-printable functional graphene based ink, supplied by Goodfellow (www.goodfellowusa.com), performs better than many normal carbon-based ink, opening the door to innovative applications that require enhanced electrical conductivity, excellent adhesion on a range of substrates and high print resolution. Such applications are found in sensors, displays, printed electronics and electrodes.
Made with Haydale HDPlas® functionalised Graphene Nanoplatelets, the ink supplied to Goodfellow offers many advantageous distinguishing characteristics including good adhesion and flexibility (on appropriate substrates), is 100% organic-based (is non-tarnishing) and curable at low temperatures. Environmentally friendly, the ink can be modified for specific substrates applications or for a given application.
Haydale Ltd, based in South Wales, UK and housed in a purpose-built facility for processing and handling Nanomaterials, is facilitating the application of Graphene’s and other Nanomaterials in fields such as aerospace, inks, sensors, energy storage, photovoltaics, composites, paints and coatings. Haydale has developed a patent-pending proprietary scalable plasma process to functionalise Graphene and other Nanomaterials. This enabling technology can provide Haydale with a rapid and highly cost-efficient method of supplying tailored solutions to enhance applications for both raw material suppliers and product manufacturers.
