Polymer graphene composites

Graphene can make polymers electrically- and thermally conductive, decrease gas permeability, improve flame retardancy, and more. All while also retaining, or boosting, mechanical properties and processibility.

Small amounts of graphene can achieve large improvements. Hence, polymer-graphene composites enable several new applications in an environmentally friendly way. Graphmatech has the know-how and technology to produce polymer-graphene formulations using traditional compounding methods.

Multifunctional graphene masterbatches

Graphene alone is difficult to work with! That is why we develop and produce graphene masterbatches (i.e., ready-to-use granular mixes) targeting a range of thermoplastics with the goal to make them multifunctional. This opens new possibilities and uses for injection moulded parts or 3D printing filaments, to name a few areas.

To help you achieve your specific material performance goals, we also offer custom development projects, tailoring our polymer-graphene formulations based on your specific polymer.

AROS MB™ HDPE - IM

AROS MB™ HDPE IM from Graphmatech is a masterbatch (i.e. ready-to-use granular mix) enhanced by our own unique Aros Graphene® Technology formula, specifically tailored for injection moulding.

The masterbatch is part of the AROS MB product range that embodies Graphmatech’s expertise in Polymer Graphene Composites. AROS MB HDPE is highly compatible with most standard high-density polyethylene (HDPE) grades available off-the-shelf and can serve as a perfect substitute for common carbon black masterbatches as it will retain the color black while increasing the final properties of the part.

AROS IM™ ABS

Fiber-reinforced Graphene-ABS compound for injection moulding with excellent process stability, high stiffness, and low heat distortion.

By being enhanced with Graphmatech’s unique graphene formulation, AROS IM™ ABS is a fire retardant and ESD hybrid composite based on ABS thermoplastics that are easy to process. ABS is an ideal material for structural applications, in which strength and stiffness are required. It may be used for interior applications such as appliance parts, transportation such as under the hood applications, and electronics.

Graphene versus carbon black for polymers

Did you know that carbon is what gives rubber tires their black color, but also improves their material properties?

Carbon black is the standard industrial choice right now, but thanks to the properties of graphene, there is a high interest in replacing carbon black with this exciting material. To assess this potential, Graphmatech’s team performed a comparative study.
