Garmor Develops Electrically Conductive Composite for use in Energy Storage and Electronic Applications
April 6, 2016

(ORLANDO, FL) -- Garmor, a leading graphene technology provider and developer of advanced customer-driven applications, has developed graphene-based composites ideal for high-volume electronic and energy storage applications. By leveraging inexpensive manufacturing methods to produce few-layer graphene oxide (GO) in tandem with innovative composite compression molding processes, Garmor produced compression-moldable GO-composites that can be shaped and stamped into almost any form factor.

The compression-moldable composites exhibit nearly isotropic electrical conductivity exceeding 1,000 S/cm delivering a unique, omnidirectional conductive substrate. Equally impressive is that these GO-enhanced materials include a polymeric resin that is inherently chemically resistant and allows for increased lifetime even in harsh operating environments.

“Creating a high-performance material suitable for high volume compression or stamping methods is a tremendous accomplishment. This achievement will further advance weight and cost reduction efforts present in nearly every market segment we target” according to Garmor’s Vice President of Engineering, Dr. Sean Christiansen.

One of the most promising applications for this composite technology is for bipolar plates used in fuel cells and flow batteries. Garmor’s technology currently exceeds the Department of Energy performance specifications for electrical conductivity in automotive bipolar plates (>100 S/cm). Strong demand also exists in the thermal heat spreader market where the GO-enhanced composite offers an equally impressive thermal conductivity that can be tailored to deliver preferred anisotropic heat dissipation.

Garmor is currently establishing strategic business relationships to deploy this technological advancement in applications focused on energy production and storage.
