Inc., announced today the world’s first commercial graphene application.
The ongoing development of touch screens for consumer electronics is driving
a growing need for sense data. Angstron’s graphene material is being used
by a major manufacturer which produces actuator and sensing components for this
The world’s largest producer of nano graphene platelets (NGPs), Angstron’s
single layer graphene has exhibited the highest electrical properties including
exceptional in-plane electrical conductivity (up to ~ 20,000 S/cm) when compared
to other nanomaterials including carbon nano-tubes (CNTs) and carbon nano-fibers
(CNFs). Products targeted include a wide range of consumer electronics including
smart phones and other portable electronics, computer peripherals, touchpad’s,
POS kiosks and industrial controls.
Angstron Materials offers a variety of graphene materials in sizes ranging
from nano to micron in the x, y and z axis. These advanced materials are collectively
referred to as nano graphene platelets (NGPs). NGPs offer improved material
performance and superior mechanical, thermal, barrier and electrical conductivity
properties. As a result, Angstron is able to work with companies to functionalize
graphene for specific applications that include batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors,
light weight structural components as well as electromagnetic interference (EMI),
radio frequency interference (RFI), electrostatic discharge (ESD), lightning
strike and other functional and structural composite applications. Angstron
uses its research and development expertise to partner with customers throughout
the commercialization process, reducing time and costs while improving performance.
NGPs are surface functionalizable for polymer and common solvent applications
and can offer loadings of up to 40 percent weight for a variety of applications.
Angstron combines real world technology to create next generation products in
the aerospace, automotive, energy, marine, construction, electronics, medical,
military and telecommunications markets.
