THE APPLICATIONS FOR GRAPHENE-BASED INK AND COATINGS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

  • Barrier coatings
  • Electrically conductive inks for printed circuits and flexible electronics, antennas, or sensors and biosensors for medical applications
  • Thermal coatings and greases for heat dissipation
  • Coatings for EMI shielding or electrostatic discharge

The agreement with the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC) signed in July 2014 has enabled us to deliver a high quality and consistent commercially available graphene-based ink. Together, we aim to investigate further opportunities to exploit functionalized graphenes and other nanomaterials.

Inks and coatings have huge potential as they are ubiquitous and can be readily enhanced by low levels of particulate additions – for example, a patent application has been recently made on a high surface area (intelligent) pressure sensor that uses graphene based ink. It can be shaped and is thinner than a normal credit card. The novel multiple sensor points can be large area thereby adding substantial additional functionality for a diverse range of market opportunities from security flooring, leak detection in industrial gas and water pipes, to assessment of gait in injured sports people.
