Graphene is an innovative carbon-based material made of robust, flexible, electrically conductive sheets, having a thickness of one atom and a lateral size of several microns. “It can be produced on large scale from the exfoliation of conventional graphite. Due to its unique combination of superior properties graphene can improve the functionality of composite materials. It is lightweight but at the same time incredibly strong, transparent, conducts heat and electricity and has a large surface area,” states Vincenzo Palermo, Graphene Flagship leader of Polymer Composites and keynote speaker at the workshop.
The Graphene Flagship states that it carries out advanced research, creating unique and innovative materials by incorporating graphene into composites. There are many potential applications including aerospace and automotive industries, energy applications, structural foams, films and coatings.
