Graphene 3D Lab has announced Graphene Flex Foam, a new commercial product that will be available through Graphene Laboratories’ e-commerce site, Graphene Supermarket. The new product is described as a Multilayer Freestanding Flexible Graphene Foam, that brings together a conductive elastomer composite with ultra-light graphene foam.
The foam, a highly conductive 3D chemical vapor deposition (CVD), together with the composite, brings together the best of several worlds of graphene usage. As a flexible foam, the material is both lightweight and reconfigurable, adding to ease of use and handling, with a porous structure. The Graphene Flex Foam could be used in conjunction with other graphene-related materials–such as Graphene 3D Lab’s filament offerings–in the creation of electronics and other conductive products.
G3L relays that the new product is an excellent substrate candidate in the manufacture of electrodes of lithium-ion batteries. Wearable electronics is an obvious application as the electronics, sensors and conductive properties will all need to be flexible with the wearable material. The company also believes that this innovative product has a bright future for the next generation of flexible batteries and supercapacitors. The Graphene Flex Foam can be manufactured in any shape or size, and any company interested in a freestanding, stable, ultralight, highly conductive material that can flex with their product and fit into any space, may be interested in this innovation.
