Graphmatech launches the world’s most conductive processable composite

Graphmatech launches the world’s most conductive processable composite

The product launched is called Aros Create. These are Nylon Aros Graphene® pellets with a volume resistivity of less than 1 Ωcm while maintaining polymer lightweight, flexibility, processability, and recyclability. The new composite may e.g. be used for extrusion, compression molding and injection molding and has unique electrical and tribological properties (low and stable coefficient of friction and high wear resistance). The potential applications are diverse, but the company’s main focus is on electrical circuit components, LED, conductive coatings, additive manufacturing, EMI / RFI shielding, and charge dissipative coatings.

The company has already received a major order from AddNorth, which will soon prepare for the market launch of conductive polymer-based filaments for 3D printing.

A pack of 1 kg conductive nylon pellets Aros Create can be ordered from the Graphmatech webshop. While larger orders should be requested.

A breakthrough in conductive engineering plastics

A breakthrough in conductive engineering plastics

Graphmatech, an award-winning materials startup, has good news to share at Hannover Messe, where they present themselves as Co-Exhibitor at Sweden Co-Lab, a place for smart innovations. Just in time for the fair Graphmatech scientists achieved world record values for conductive engineering plastics which has at least 100 times lower resistivity than achieved before in filaments for 3D printing. This is a further milestone in the success story of Graphmatech that began with the founding in 2017, led to the patented technology and material Aros Graphene®, great collaborations with Swedish, Swiss and German key industries and an award as Nanotech company of the year in the Nordics in 2018.

The recently measured world record values built upon a scalable and cost-efficient process for coating polymer granular and powder with Aros Graphene® for obtaining high-quality dispersion, that Graphmatech announced last summer. It made possible to develop a well-dispersed solution for Aros Graphene® in plastics. This process is considered as a compounding step before extruding filaments for 3D-printing or injection molding. The developed process can be also used for coating polymer granular/powder with other types of additives such as metals, oxides, ceramics, fibers, etc.

The 3D-printing technology of the ultra-conductive material Aros Graphene® could revolutionize the way we use multifunctional materials and manufacturing technologies. With the new technology, it is possible to tailor the exact level of conductivity of the filament which opens up for a wide range of new possible applications that’s never been possible with 3D-printing before. The conductive filament can, for example, be used to produce circuit boards, shielding applications, electrostatics, sensors and other items for IoT applications.

Currently, the process is under scaling-up and first products are planned to be a highly conductive plastic filament for 3D printing, which will be launched in collaboration with the Swedish 3D filament producer AddNorth, as well as composite pellets/master batches for injection molding and other polymer manufacturing technologies.

Graphmatech was founded by materials scientist Dr. Mamoun Taher and serial entrepreneur Björn Lindh. The major investors of the company are ABB Technology Venture, InnoEnergy and the well-known business angel Jane Walerud.

Project to 3D-print Batteries Based on Aros Graphene® Commenced

Project to 3D-print Batteries Based on Aros Graphene® Commenced

Graphmatech will serve as a project partner in the pursuit of novel 3D-printable structural batteries, a Vinnova financed project spearheaded by Swerea IVF. Graphmatech will supply Aros Graphene® to this project, where the aim is to 3D-print a complete and functional battery, with potential future uses such as wearable electronics.

Additonal information about the project is available at Vinnovas site (in Swedish)

Bright Future for 3D-Printable Conductive Filaments

Bright Future for 3D-Printable Conductive Filaments

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.

3 new projects signed – Koenigsegg, ABB/AQ Plastics and Ericsson/Nolato

 

Three larger strategically important projects have been signed this week:

1. A 2 million Swedish Krona budget project on self-lubrication and self-cooling Polymer-Aros Graphene composites with the sports car manufacturer Koenigsegg (Kongsberg Automotive) and Uppsala University. See details here.

2. A Vinnova and SIO Graphene sponsored for this 1 million Swedish Krona project with Nolato and Ericsson on Aros Graphene-based thermal interface materials. See details here.

3. In a Synerleap pitch competeion Graphmatech won a 30 000 USD paid project with ABB and AQ Plastics on thermal condutive plastics.

 

 

Break-through: wrapping Polymer Powder with Aros Graphene

Graphmatech’s research team has succeeded in developing a simple and scalable method for coating polymer powder and granular with a layer of Aros Graphene®. A Leap Towards High-quality Graphene Composites.

This newly developed method is very efficient to obtain high quality dispersion of Aros Graphene® additive inside a polymer matrix without the use of high shear forces in melt mixing. It enormously reduces production costs and minimizes property degradation for both the polymer matrix and the additive while maintaining high quality and homogeneous composite. The invented method can be also applied for coating polymer powder with different materials such as metals, ceramics, fibers, cellulose and etc.

Applications of polymer-Aros Graphene® composites are many such as multifunctional filaments for 3D printing, or engineering composites with light weight, high thermal conductivity, high mechanical strength and enhanced tribological properties (low coefficients of friction and wear).
