Customizing Graphene Dispersions: A Key Step in Realizing Graphene Potential
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Conference Room D
10:00 - 10:20
Graphene has commercial potential in numerous applications. However, many of these applications have failed to bear fruit due to the poor integration or low compatibility of graphene in end-use systems. In this presentation, PPG and Raymor will explain how properly dispersed graphene can be incorporated into both water based and solvent based formulations at high loadings. Novel techniques that have been developed to allow stable dispersions at loadings of >15% of our proprietary plasma graphene will be discussed. The use of customized resins to effectively integrate graphene powder into different systems and formulations will also be presented.
Norma Mendoza is a modeling and plasma specialist at Raymor. She participates in the scale-up and optimization of plasma systems, product development, materials characterisation and technical customer service.
Before joining Raymor in 2018, she worked as a research associate at the Plasma Processing Laboratory of McGill University where she co-authored the patent: "Oxygen functionalized graphene nanoflake ... nanofluid".
Norma has 15 years of experience in plasma materials processing including CFD modeling, PVD coatings, CVD carbon nanotubes synthesis and nanomaterials characterisation. Norma received her B.A.S. in chemical engineering from BUAP University (Mexico) and her M.Sc.A., Ph.D. from University of Sherbrooke (Canada).
Raymor, together with its Nanointegris and Graphene Limited Partnership subsidiaries, is a world leading provider of high-purity crumpled graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) and
small diameter single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT).
Established in 2006, Raymor uses a patented plasma technology to synthesize both GNP and SWCNT at industrial scale and with superior quality.
The small diameter SWCNT (<1.5 nm) are separated and purified to create formulations of conductive and semiconducting inks for electronic applications. Our PureWave Graphene (few layers thick <10), with a unique crumpled morphology, is ideally suited to enclose silicon nanoparticles for graphene-Si battery anodes.
