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.
Qi Ding is a Research Chemist at PPG, leading the development of graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) for energy storage and coating applications. She has developed high solids GNP dispersions in both aqueous and organic systems with customized PPG resins that have potential use in a wide range of applications. Qi has strong expertise in materials chemistry and electrochemistry, and has co-authored 22 peer-reviewed papers in prestigious journals with 4700 citations. She received her B.S. in Chemistry from Shandong University and her Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
A leading supplier of paints, coatings and specialty materials, PPG will showcase printed electronic and mobility solutions. Polymer-thick-film circuit materials; printable patterning paste; EMI/RFI shielding and electrostatic discharge solutions highlight the company's electronic and conductive materials. PPG also will showcase functional coatings that enable the Autonomous, Connected, Electrified and Shared vehicle ecosystem; PPG Cuming Microwave Materials, which eliminate EMI problems, reduce cavity resonances and reduce noise in electronic packages; and PPG TESLIN® substrate products for printed electronics, RF/EMI shielding solutions, and functional labels and packaging with features not available with conventional pulp paper and rigid plastics.
