After the breakthrough at Uppsala university that solves the practical issues of large-scale industrial implementation of the super-material graphene the company Graphmatech was founded. Now Graphmatech’s research team has succeeded in developing a scalable method for coating polymer powder and granular with a layer of Aros Graphene®. Mamoun Taher, CEO of Graphmatech, wrapping polymer powders with Aros Graphene® is a multifunctional gift to polymer composites industries.
Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon material, one atom thick and the strongest material the world has ever seen. It has extremely high electrical and thermal conductivity and is ultra-light and transparent. Graphene was first isolated, and characterized in 2004 and was rewarded the Nobel prize in 2010. Graphene is expected to revolutionize engineering materials, power and electronics sectors.
However, the development has so far been held back by industrial implementation issues. The problem is that the properties of the material deteriorate when implemented at large scale due to agglomeration and poor dispersion when added as a reinforcement additive
