Getting to grips with graphene

Representatives from Grupo Antolin, Avanzare, Polygraph and Talga will provide industry perspectives on the potential and advantages of working with graphene during a special workshop held during Composites Europe 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

As a carbon-based material made of robust, flexible, electrically conductive sheets, with a thickness of one atom and a lateral size of several microns, graphene can be produced on large scale from the exfoliation of conventional graphite. Due to its unique combination of superior properties it can improve the functionality of composite materials.

To provide an opportunity for networking and collaboration between academia and industry, the Graphene Flagship is organising a Graphene Connect workshop at Composites Europe 2016 from 30 November to 1 December. It will focus on graphene-based including lightweight and multi-functional materials for the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as the application of graphene additives and coatings.

“Our goal is to improve our control of the properties of graphene at the nanoscale to obtain truly disruptive products and fully exploit the unique electrical, mechanical or optical properties of graphene,” says Vincenzo Palermo, Graphene Flagship leader of Polymer Composites and a keynote speaker at the workshop.
