Thanks to its inertness and its high aspect ratio, graphene shows barrier-enhancing properties. However, the absence of functional groups at its surface and the dispersion quality of the graphene is critical for barrier properties to be optimized. Fully exfoliated and unmodified Carbon Waters’ graphene is a perfect product to have access to an optimal barrier effect on moisture, oxygen or temperature.
We showed that the amount of graphene required for optimal results will depend on the size, the deposition methods and the nature of the surface (metal or plastics for example). Facing any challenges on barrier optimization ? We may have the right solution for you.
