Graphene has the potential to transform many products. Its electrical and thermal conductivity, optical purity and mechanical strength could be used in a wide range of materials such as inks, coatings and composites, sensors, flexible screens, high-capacity batteries and ultra-fast transistors. Ultimately, the full potential of graphene and its possible applications are not yet known but CPI’s Graphene Application Centre will help UK industry to identify the opportunities and capitalise on them.
CPI has a range of enabling technologies which support the development and integration of graphene into final products such as inks, coatings, composites, membranes and sensors. Our techniques focus on the safe-handling, optimised dispersion and structuring of graphene into liquids and polymer substrates, and their application into prototype products – all supported by characterisation and application testing.
The Graphene Application Centre is located in close proximity to our Printable Electronics and Formulation facilities, and it is the ability to draw on the expertise and equipment within these complementary technologies that allows us to take graphene enabled products from dispersion, to application, and onto commercialisation, with testing and characterisation at every step. Our industry trained staff have a wide range of market knowledge covering various end-user products such as paints, inks, composites, thermoplastics, and emulsions.
