Graphene’s two-dimensional structure in the nanoplatelet form results in very high performance, high aspect ratio, high surface area materials which are particularly suited to enhancing the mechanical and physical properties of polymer and composite materials and applications.
How do Graphene Nanoplatelets work?
AGM is proud to offer graphene nanoplatelet dispersions that are safe to handle and easily stirred into new and existing polymer and composite applications to provide a range of performance enhancing benefits. Across AGM’s product ranges, we offer different types graphene nanoplatelets. These vary in surface morphology, oxygen content and the number atomic layers, but they typically have a thickness between 1 to 10nm with 1-25µm lateral platelet diameter. This gives aspect ratios up to 1:1000 and surface areas up to 700m2/g.
With the correct incorporation, graphene nanoplatelets have the potential to significantly enhance an array of properties including mechanical, barrier, thermal, lubricating and electrical performance in new and existing industrial systems.
The benefits of graphene nanoplatelet enhanced composite materials include:
- Delivers significant increases in fracture toughness, matrix modulus, laminate interlaminar shear strength and ultimate fatigue performance
- Outstanding performance under hot/wet environmental conditioning
- Additional multi-functional benefits
- Exceptionally low loading levels
- Extensive in-house product integration expertise
AGM’s product range is designed to guide you towards the most appropriate dispersion for your system, whether that is one of AGM’s standard Genable® products or a customised dispersion in a polymer matrix or composite material of your choosing.
