CAMX 2017 preview: Applied Graphene Materials
Appears in Print as: 'Synthesized Nanoplates that Integrate Seamlessly'
Applied Graphene Materials UK Ltd. (AGM, Cleveland, UK) is featuring its synthesized nanoplatelets (A-GNPs).
Applied Graphene Materials UK Ltd. (AGM, Cleveland, UK) is featuring its synthesized nanoplatelets (A-GNPs). These are combined with AGM’s dispersion and product integration technology to enable A-GNPs to be integrated into existing materials cost effectively and without major disruption to established manufacturing processes.
Reported benefits of A-GNPs are increased toughness, improved barrier protection and high conductivity. AGM has information about SHD Composites Ltd (Sleaford, UK), an early graphene adopter that worked with AGM to develop a graphene-enhanced epoxy prepreg system, MTC9810. AGM says MTC9810 is supported by a strong mechanical database that exhibits outstanding mechanical properties, particularly in fracture toughness, interlaminar shear strength and fatigue life.

JEC World will be held March 14-16 in Paris. CW previews some of the products and technologies that will be at the show.
For composite applications, these hollow microstructures displace a lot of volume at low weight and add an abundance of processing and product enhancements.
Fast, scalable process grows nanostructures directly on composite reinforcements for a “drop-in” use in volume production processes.
