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.“
