Graphene Composite material Step 2
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 2 520 000|
|Project duration||November 2017 - December 2019|
|Venture||Strategic innovation program SIO Grafen|
Purpose and goal
The aim of the project was that Saintpro would obtain the necessary information about graphene / pc could be integrated improved for use in our ballistic products (shields) We believe that we have achieved the goal for this and look forward with excitement to continued work for the future. to increase our knowledge of its properties. The project has been very educational for all partners (2Dfab, Chalmers Industriteknik, Bobeplast, FOI etc.) where the knowledge of the graph has resulted in an increased knowledge of the material´s properties and above all uses, which we see are endless for this material.
Expected results and effects
Saintpro purchased the raw material PC from the company Erteco and together with 2Dfab we have made polycarbonate graphene composites for ballistic investigations. A first step, the material was compounded into a master batch by Polykarbonat-Grafen with a relatively high graphene content. The details obtained have graphene levels of 0%, 0.5% 0.75%, 1.0 and 2.0%. These were then tested by FOI, CIT and Saintpro with positive results.
Planned approach and implementation
** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** Saintpro has had a good cooperation with all parties involved. We have been transparent with all tests and what needs we have had in the project to maximize the result during the project period. Project plans for each sub-target were followed up with a telephone meeting once a month. We think everyone has been very interested in helping and, above all, showing great interest in learning more about the graph as this was something new for some of the companies.
