Thomas Swan has announced the launch of a high-performance graphene intermediate product for coatings formulators. The new Elicarb Graphene product is a cost effective, stable, easy to handle dispersion of Elicarb Materials Grade Graphene powder for formulation into epoxy-based coating formulations. The product is available now in liter quantities for testing and evaluation.
Thomas Swan has established a 20 tonne per year capability for the manufacture of Elicarb Graphene and Elinova Boron Nitride products at its UK manufacturing site in Consett, County Durham. Elicarb Graphene Epoxy Dispersion is a high performance intermediate product which is intended for further optimization and incorporation into customers’ existing proprietary coating systems. The graphene dispersion is targeted at improving corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity, chemical barrier and mechanical resistance in industrial coatings.
