NeoGraf Solutions, LLC offers a variety of masterbatches incorporating its Graf-X™ graphene nanoplatelets, Graf+® graphite powder, and GrafGuard® expandable graphite additives.
Graphene, graphite, and expandable graphite additives can be added to polymers to boost their electrical, thermal, mechanical and fire-retardant properties. The use of masterbatches is favored by customers who prefer the convenience of handling pellets rather than powders in their manufacturing processes.
Material grades have been developed for the insulation board market. Properties of the three grades are available at TDS618.
Fire retardant (FR) grades have been developed for the polyolefin foam and thermoplastic markets, all using an LDPE carrier and 50% expandable graphite loading.
Properties of the four FR grades are available at TDS617.
The nomenclature is Graf-M FR (resin type) (Onset Temperature (°C)-Mesh Size)
Other formulations can be available on request.
Graf-M™ masterbatches are used in the building and construction, transportation, automotive and bedding industries
NeoGraf’s global team of application engineers specialize in developing and manufacturing high-quality flexible natural and synthetic graphite material solutions for today’s advanced applications. Regardless of your product design phase (concept, prototyping, or mass production), we offer technical answers and thermal modeling support to some of your most challenging problems with a fast response time.
A comprehensive study of non-halogenated fire retardants conducted by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden was recently published in the Journal of Applied Polymer Science.
