Conductive plastics: Carbon for a low-carbon future

SHARE

Can carbon support a low-carbon future, as the demand for electrically conductive plastics increases?

In a recent interview with Compounding World, Torkel Nord Bjärneman, Business Development Manager – Polymers at Graphmatech, shared his insights on the development of graphene-enhanced polymers and the possibilities of utilizing graphene to create sustainable solutions.

We usually speak of multifunctionality when we talk about added benefit, because graphene can enable applications where for example the mechanical, thermal properties and processability are just as critical as the electrical properties.“

Safer, less leaky gas tubes to Canada 

Uppsala, Sweden — According to their new MoU, Polytubes and Graphmatech are co-developing tubes for hydrogen and gas distribution.  The pipes are expected to leak significantly less hydrogen gas than current technology. Reducing leakage is not only a financial priority, but also an environmental priority. Hydrogen has a an eleven-times higher global warming potential (GWP)

Steelhead Composites and Graphmatech are developing improved hydrogen storage tanks with graphene

Uppsala, Sweden — The companies will develop and produce a new high performance type IV pressure vessel liner. Expected improvements include reduced hydrogen leakage and increased resistance to extreme thermal- and pressure conditions. The partnership combines Steelhead Composites’ leading pressure vessel technology, services, and market position with Graphmatech’s graphene-polymer composites for the hydrogen economy.

Reducing hydrogen gas leakage from pipes and storage vessels by more than 40% using graphene

Uppsala, Sweden — Hydrogen is a key part of the transition to a sustainable future, but it poses engineering challenges; the gas molecules are very small, easily escaping through different types of materials. In addition, Hydrogen gas is stored at extreme pressure- and temperature conditions.The materials currently used in Type IV pressure vessels and pipes

Graphmatech and Wematter partner to enable cutting-edge conductive materials for SLS 3D printing

Swedish graphene-solutions provider Graphmatech is partnering with 3D printer manufacturer Wematter, the easy-to-use SLS 3D-printing platform provider for additive manufacturing. Graphmatech enhances polymer powders with Graphene, which makes them electrically- and thermally conductive, improve processibility, and more. Together, the two startups will develop an electrically conductive powder, tailored for Gravity – the SLS 3D printer
