PolyGraph Project to Exhibit at Graphene Week

PolyGraph, a multi-partner EU project led by NetComposites in the UK, will be exhibiting at Graphene Week.

The PolyGraph project has developed a range of graphene enhanced materials where improvements were made in the strength, stiffness, electrical conductivity and thermal properties of polymers. These materials include fibre reinforced composite resins, coatings and adhesives.

During Graphene Week, 25-29 September 2017 in Athens, Greece, PolyGraph will display case study examples of the products. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet with members of the consortium; there will be end users, researchers and material suppliers available to answer questions. In addition, there will be presentations and posters related to the work performed during the course of the project.

A combined composite demonstrator which showcases the graphene-enhanced composite materials, coatings and adhesives developed in the project will be on display.

As well as Graphene week, PolyGraph will be attending the Industrial Nanocomposites Conference 2017 in Stuttgart, Germany, on 10-11 October. This will provide a further opportunity to see the outputs from the project.

PolyGraph is a four-year, EU funded, collaborative research project composed of 14 partners: NetComposites, Imerys Graphite & Carbon, Avanzare Innovacion Tecnologica, YTRON Process Technology, University of Padova, SAIREM, Robnor Resins, NETZSCH Feinmahltechnik, Queen Mary University of London, Centro Ricerche Fiat, BAE Systems Advanced Technology Centre, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, the Institute of Occupational Medicine and HMG paints.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013 under grant agreement no. 604143.
