Adding Graf+® Graphite Powders to Enhance Electrical and Thermal Conductivity, and More
Our Graf+® powder business is supported by our graphite material science expertise – over 140 years of it!
NeoGraf Solutions can optimize several variables that tailor the end characteristics of our Graf+® graphite powders to meet customer needs. The resulting highly engineered graphite powders are used as additives in a large number of applications.
Our manufacturing process begins with specifying the starting raw material. Our selection of natural and synthetic graphite can deliver a varying degree of crystallinity and purity.
Further, we tailor the processing of these raw materials to deliver a differentiated graphite powder. Our expertise in chemical treating, thermal processing, and milling allows us to offer the broadest range of critical powder characteristics.
NeoGraf Solutions manufactures natural and synthetic graphite powders and nanoplatelets within the Graf+® product line. Graf+ graphite powders are available in a range of particle sizes and purities depending on the end-use application. The graphite powders are available as dry powders, compounded with polymers (masterbatches) or as pastes. Graf+ graphite powders comes in three main variations
All the above materials are available as jet milled powders over the particle size range of ~ 5-25 µm with coarser sieved fractions available on request. Graphite purity varies from < 95% Carbon to > 99.9% Carbon. Typical properties and purity levels are shown here. These powders can all be made available in masterbatches that are tailored for use in Polystyrene (PS), Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) or Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) applications. The powders can also be combined with mineral oil and petrolatum to produce pastes.
Graf+ graphite powders are suitable for a broad range of applications and used primarily in the building and construction, energy storage, conducting polymer and lubricant markets. Graf+ graphite powders are commonly used as additives in batteries, foams, greases, lubricants, polymers, fuel cells, paints, adhesives, and coatings to enhance electrical and thermal conductivity, reduce degradation to UV radiation, increase insulation value in foams and modify lubrication, friction & wear characteristics. Example applications include:
