Graf-X Graphene Nanoplatelet Additives enhance performance in a wide variety of applications
NeoGraf’s Graf-X Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNPs) can be added to a range of materials to increase mechanical strength, enhance thermal and electrical conductivity, reduce degradation to UV radiation, and provide enhanced barrier properties. Graf-X graphene nanoplatelets are available in a wide range of lateral platelet dimensions, BET surface areas, and purity levels depending on the end-use application.
Graf-X graphene nanoplatelets and masterbatches are used in a broad range of applications, including additives in concrete admixtures, insulative foams, conductive yarns, coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, lubricants, paints, and barrier coatings. Primary markets are building and construction, composites and textiles, and energy storage.
Graf-X Graphene Precursors (GPs) are specially designed graphite materials ready for further processing or conversion into graphene products. NeoGraf’s graphene precursors are generated from both natural and synthetic graphite sources and can be used in various graphene production processes, including:
Graf-X graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) enhance performance in a wide range of products and applications:
In concrete, adding Graf-X GNPs can:
In composites and textiles, adding Graf-X GNPs can:
In coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers, graphene additives can be used for anticorrosion and anti-biofouling coatings, such as for marine ship hulls, reducing drag on the ship and reducing maintenance. Graf-X can also be used in tires to increase the wear resistance by 30% or more, increasing tire life and improving fuel economy. Graphene-enhanced tires also promise improved grip in dry and wet conditions, which can translate to faster acceleration on wet roads or shorter braking distances in icy conditions.
In energy storage (lithium-ion, alkaline, supercapacitors), Graf-X can be utilized both on the anode and cathode side of a battery cell to increase the specific density (amount of energy stored per unit mass) of a battery, which is particularly important for automotive applications where the lighter weight the vehicle is, the longer it can travel between charges.
NeoGraf’s graphene nanoplatelets are available as dry powders, dispersions or compounded with polymers as masterbatches. Our manufacturing capabilities also allow us to offer customizable solutions to meet your unique application requirements.
