The University of Central Florida’s NanoScience Technology Center is developing graphene-based spray coating. The spray will be based on a polymer-graphene composite that will both be used to strengthen materials (used for the construction of aircrafts and cars) and to protect materials from corrosion.
The Center launched a program that will develop graphene oxide, the plastic host and a plasma spray. Garmor (which was spun off the UCF and licensed technology developed at the NanoScience Center) will assist with the formulation of the graphene oxide. The GO will need to be modified so it can be adhered to a plastic host and sprayed onto a surface while retaining its innate strength and elasticity.
The University is looking for industry partners (as well as research students) to participate in this program. More information can be found in the link below.
