Graphene paste

We produce pastes of graphene and graphene oxide of high concentration in a passive solvent (for example, in distilled water) in three categories (see table 4). Concentration of graphene flakes and oxidized graphene flakes can be: 30% (graphene) + 70% (water), 50% (graphene) + 50% (water), 70% (graphene) + 30% (water). Parameters of such graphene pastes are presented in the Table. It is used for various applications, including: modified additives (additives) to various materials (construction, structural, etc.), creation of thermal interface pastes (for example, based on polymer-graphene thermal interfaces), as semi-liquid lubricants, for creating polymer-graphene heaters, etc.
