XG Sciences reports that graphene additive can provide superior multifunctional benefits to polypropylene products.
XG Sciences makes graphene in Lansing, Mich. The company said commercial applications of xGnP Graphene nanoplatelets are growing rapidly as additives in various thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers for composites, coatings, nylons, foams, polyurethane, epoxy, concrete and adhesives.
The benefits to PP include better mechanical, physical, thermal, electrical and barrier levels. Graphene also improves processing, giving faster cycle times and reduced energy use, the company said.
XG Sciences supplies xGnO Graphene in PP as masterbatch pellets that can be incorporated into plastics manufacturing processes such as injection molding, extrusion, blow molding and rotational molding. Graphene-reinforced parts can be used across a broad range of markets, including packaging, consumer, electrical, industrial, construction and automotive.
