Graphene, or more accurately single-layer graphene, is “one single layer of carbon bound to three neighbours in a honeycomb structure” (ISO/TS 80004-13:2017). Graphene possesses an unsurpassed combination of mechanical, electrical and thermal properties.

Graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) are nanoparticles, consisting of graphene layers, with one external dimension in the nanoscale and the other two external dimensions significantly larger (ISO/TS 80004-13:2017) These nanomaterials deliver properties having a sub-set of that of single-layer graphene. As GNPs they can be used as an additive to multiple products (e.g. polymers, composites, concrete, asphalt, lubricants) to enable a multitude of costeffective feature-enhancing properties such as light-weighting, thermal conductivity, barrier properties, and so on.

Our GNPs are available in multiple forms (dispersion, powder, masterbatch) to suit your individual process route. Thomas Swan GNPs can also be customised to optimise your supply chain and enhance multiple features of your end-product cost-effectively. Be sure to ask about our EliScreen options to further speed-up this process development.
