Description

Dispersions based on expanded graphite powders and graphite nanoplates.


Expanded graphite nanoplates consist of small, 1-15 nanometer thick, single or multilayer graphite layers, with diameters up to 100 micrometers. They constitute a new class of graphite nanoparticles with multifunctional properties. In order to obtain a graphite dispersion, small graphite particles and nanoplates produced by secondary treatment of our expanded graphite are mixed with a dispersant in water. Depending on the application, the viscosity of the dispersion can be adjusted by means of different concentrations of solids. The maximum dispersible solid content is 5.5% by weight.


Key characteristics of our graphite nanoplates are:

  • Excellent layer formation on a variety of substrates, e.g. copper foil or PET film
  • The high aspect ratio of the graphite nanoplates allows high electrical and thermal conductivity
  • Freestanding graphite foils with a thickness between 5 and 15 μm can be produced
