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.

Applications aren't as demanding as airframe composites, but requirements are still exacting — passenger safety is key.
The old art behind this industry’s first fiber reinforcement is explained,with insights into new fiber science and future developments.
A look at the process by which precursor becomes carbon fiber through a careful (and mostly proprietary) manipulation of temperature and tension.
