Vinnova has once again recognized the potential in graphene by committing to the second stage of a Graphmatech project to develop 3D-printable nanocomposites for thermal management applications!
Targeting innovative start-ups, Vinnova decided to award the company a grant that amounts to 900 000 SEK. The basics of this project are that Aros Graphene provides an even distribution of graphene in a composite, and its inherent properties also render it possible to 3D-print such a material. This enables tailor-made designs of nanocomposites.
Apart from enhancing the mechanical strength and electrical conductivity, graphene also has by far the best thermal conductivity of all known materials. These nanocomposites can therefore be utilized in thermal management applications, such as casings for electronics and energy storage units.
