Product Detail

 CAS No.: 7782-42-5

Graphene nanoplatelets from ACS Material are nanoscale particles of graphite. These nanoparticles contain stacks of graphene that are between 2 and 10 nanometers thick with diameters between 2 and 7 micrometers. A close look at the nanoplatelets would show a material that looks like graphite; the only difference is that the stack size of graphene layers is very, very small. The shape and size of the platelets makes them easy to chemically modify and disperse in order to create various composite materials. The resulting composite materials—examples include plastics, polymers, rubbers, and nylons—are electrically and thermally conductive and perform more like metals. Graphene nanoplatelets also improve barrier properties and surface toughness of composites.

Graphene nanoplatelets 2-10nm in size are available from ACS Material in 50g, 500g, and 1kg packages. Industrial quantities are also available upon request. All of our advanced nanomaterials are prepared using the latest methods and conform to the most rigorous standards for purity and consistency.

Application Instruction

  • 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
