Graphene poised to conquer outer space

Graphene poised to conquer outer space Events & awards 4 May 2021

Back

For the second year in a row, Carbon Waters has participated in Paris Space Week, joining nearly 1.000 participants online. The theory has been proven: with its unique properties, graphene is ready to conquer space.

With 1.000 participants, 40 conferences, and 9.000 qualified business meetings, Paris Space Week was a great success, despite the sanitary crisis, demonstrating that its attendees are willing to innovate and move ahead, especially in the space sector.

The trade show took place digitally last March 9–10, 2021, gathering the major players in aeronautics, space, and defense, as well as institutions, in order to examine the new challenges of space exploration.

Carbon Waters took advantage of the event and could thus meet big purchasers to explain them what are graphene’s many properties. While they may be small, these nanoparticles could play a big role in the years ahead in the space sector.

Recycling Rockets

Due to its ability to resist strong and physicial thermal constraints, graphene is the perfect solution to the miniaturizing of increasingly powerful electronic components. Charlotte Gallois tells us, “Not only does it facilitate the discharge of excess heat, it also ensures better temperature diffusion.”

Used as an additive,* it increases the useful life of materials by strengthening their resistance in environments that can be quite harsh, while not weighing them down.

This “super power” of graphene ticks all the boxes on the projects of several stakeholders, such as Space X and the CNES which have already shown interest. In fact, these entities want to develop reusable capsules and components. Charlotte Gallois notes, “That requires materials that are both light and ultra-resistant to corrosion, heat, and shock.”

A graphene epoxy premix is currently being tested. That premix should be the answer to improving materials’ mechanical and thermal performance.

Carbon Waters Joins the European Macramé Program

Last December, Carbon Waters became part of the European Macramé project, a consortium with 19 partners. Its mission is considerable: Run tests to precisely characterize graphene nanoparticles and their toxicity throughout the product lifecycle. Lucie Chupin explains, “The three-year European Macramé project has gathered stakeholders from academies, business, and laboratories around several case studies on […]
