Graphene Ink materials added to the graphene catalog

Graphene-Info's graphene catalog is probably the world's most complete online graphene materials catalog, and today we are happy to announce we have added graphene inks as a new material type.

Graphene Inks at the Graphene Catalog

Currently we list four different graphene inks, from three different producers. We aim to keep adding new materials to our catalog as the range of materials offered from graphene makers increase. If you seek to acquire graphene inks, all you have to do is click here and get started. We can also help with finding a graphene developer to produce custom graphene materials.

Swinburne University and IIM announce graphene smart composites project

Imagine Intelligent Materials and Swinburne University have announced a collaborative six-month project aiming to develop graphene-reinforced smart composites. The composite will be able to report on the condition of large structures, and will have major commercial potential in the transport sector, including automotive and aerospace.

The project is supported by a $20,000 Seed grant from the university under a program, targeting “interdisciplinary projects that are aligned with the Swinburne research institutes’ external partnership and collaboration objectives”. It will combine expertise from experts in sensors, electronics engineering and aerospace manufacturing at the university.

NSF grant to fund development of inkjet-printed graphene-based water quality sensors

The National Science Foundation recently awarded University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee scientists $1.5 million to perfect a method of mass-producing graphene-based small water sensors using inkjet printing. The goal is to determine whether the process can be customized in order to scale up production and in a more economic way than traditional manufacturing methods.

The graphene-based sensors, developed at UWM, reportedly outperform current technologies in accuracy, sensitivity and sensing speed. Their performance and size make them useful for continuously monitoring drinking water for miniscule traces of contaminants like lead.

Manchester U team prints flexible GO-based supercapacitors on fabrics

Researchers from The University of Manchester recently demonstrated flexible graphene-based supercapacitors printed directly on to textiles using a simple screen-printing technique.

The solid-state flexible supercapacitor device has been demonstrated by using conductive graphene-oxide ink to print onto cotton fabric. The printed electrodes reportedly exhibited excellent mechanical stability due to the strong interaction between the ink and textile substrate.

Haydale launches Taiwan operations

Haydale logoHaydale recently announced the launch of its Taiwan operations, Haydale Technologies Taiwan ('HTW'), which will operate as a dedicated producer and sales outlet of graphene-based conductive inks and pastes, including other functional and specialty inks and pastes.

Located in Southern Taiwan, HTW has largely completed the setup of its own dedicated ink production facility to meet its anticipated demand. Haydale has been working in Taiwan for more than 18 months, having determined in late 2015 that the region's focus on functional inks and pastes could provide an important route to market for Haydale's tailored graphene-based materials. The work involved market assessments, in-country technical capability, ability to gain regulatory approvals and gaining a deep understanding of the targeted print customers' needs.
