There is a broad range of high-performance glass, carbon, and wood composite materials that have expanded into mainstream markets. For example, reinforced polymer composites are no longer strictly the realm of aerospace, or relatively niche sectors such as sporting goods. Additionally, high temperature composites (often epoxies) are utilized in fire and blast walls and cladding in environments where risk of fire or explosion is high, such as oil & gas or military uses.
Turbostratic very Few Layer Graphene (vFLG) provides an effective and stable dispersion for thermoset resins that are typically liquid systems prior to application. Some of the key potential properties that this graphene can offer for this diverse industry are as follows: enhanced mechanical properties (durability, flex modulus, impact toughness), heat deflection temperature, anti-biofouling, and resistant to corrosion due to high aspect ratio.
