With an average thickness of 1-2 nanometers, graphene nanoplatelets provide improved barrier properties that guarantee strength, security, and reliability. Their completely graphitic composition also means that they make tremendous thermal and electrical conductors. Inevitably, this makes graphene nanoplatelets a highly sought-after product that can be used in a variety of applications, including thermoset composites, natural rubber, strong adhesives, and much more. By reducing the component’s overall mass without diminishing its strong properties, graphene nanoplatelets are a cost-effective tool that can be used to enhance overall conductivity.

Typical SEM Image of ACS Material Graphene Nanoplatelets (1-2nm)
- Use as a high performance additive for composites with PPO‚ POM ‚PPS‚ PC‚ ABS‚ PP‚ PE‚ PS‚ Nylon and rubbers.
- Can improve composites tensile strength‚ stiffness‚ corrosion resistance‚ abrasion resistance and anti-static electricity and lubricant properties.
- For all mechanical properties modifications‚ typical amounts are about 2-6wt%
- For conductivity modification‚ typical amounts are about 2-8wt%
- Mix Graphene nanoplatelets with the target polymer using a double-roller‚ banburymixer‚ twin screw extruder or other mixer commonly used in the plastics industry. For better dispersion of the product powder in the target polymer matrix‚ some surface modifiers‚ such as silane coupling agent‚ titanate coupling agent or aluminate coupling agent‚ etc are recommended to use before mixing the powder with plastics resin.
- The effectiveness of modification depends very much on the type and the amount of surface modifiers used. We would be delighted to speak with you about what works best for your application. Please call (US) 866-227-0656
Q: What are the thermal stability of Graphene Nanoplatelets at ambient pressure?
A: GNPs will not oxide below 600 Celsius‚ and they are very stable.
