Paints and coatings

Graphene’s two-dimensional structure in the nanoplatelet form results in very high aspect ratio, high surface area materials which are particularly suited for use as multi-functional additives in paints and coatings.

AGM has developed graphene nanoplatelet dispersions specifically optimised for paints and coatings applications. Graphene additives for paints and coatings deliver exciting properties; by incorporating optimised dispersions, AGM is enabling formulators to easily innovate and realise the real benefits of graphene.

How do AGMs Graphene Nanoplatelets work?

AGM is proud to offer graphene nanoplatelet dispersions that are safe to handle and easily stirred into new and existing coatings systems to provide a range of performance-enhancing benefits. Across our product ranges, we offer different types graphene nanoplatelets. These vary in surface morphology, oxygen content and the number atomic layers, but they typically have a thickness between 1 to 10nm with 1-25µm lateral platelet diameter. This gives aspect ratios up to 1:1000 and surface areas up to 700m2/g.

With the correct incorporation, graphene nanoplatelets have the potential to significantly enhance an array of properties, including mechanical, barrier, thermal, lubricating and electrical performance in new and existing industrial systems.
