Graphene NanoChem, the performance nanochemicals and advanced materials company, is pleased to announce it has filed a Malaysian patent application in relation to a unique method of making graphene nanocomposites by multiphase fluid dynamic dispersion.
Graphene NanoChem’s multiphase fluid dispersion device, PlatSperse, provides a significant enhancement to the Group’s platform in graphene dispersion and enables Graphene NanoChem to explore a more diverse range of applications with a view to commercialising graphene enhanced products.
The addition of graphene to a host material can enhance the properties for multifunctional applications in numerous industries such as oilfield, automotive, aerospace, medicine, electronics, structural and mechanical and energy. PlatSperse enables direct dispersion into a polymeric host material, for which there is great demand due to its high mechanical strength and excellent electrical properties. PlatSperse provides a simpler, more cost effective and “in situ” method of directly and evenly dispersing graphene nanomaterials within a variety of aqueous solutions and polymeric materials.
The Group will be seeking to extend the patent protection for its latest inventions in selected jurisdictions worldwide.
Jespal Deol, Chief Executive Officer of Graphene NanoChem, commented:
“We are very pleased with this addition to our current IP portfolio. PlatSperse represents technological advances for both a cost effective and efficient method of graphene dispersions for a wide range of applications, further accelerating the growth potential of our advanced materials platform.”
