Graphene is an amazing material of the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) that is hundreds of times stronger than steel, can stretch by 20-25%, is so light that a sheet of graphene covering a football field will weigh less than a gram, is better than silver and copper at carrying heat, transmits 97-98% of light (compared to the 80-90% of glass), is a super conductor of electricity, and is impermeable to gases.
The flexible property of graphene allows for various electronic devices on flexible substrates, such as flexible, all-solid-state graphene-based supercapacitors, wearable touch panels, strain sensors, and self-powered triboelectric sensors.
All these devices have been recently demonstrated with applications such as flexible, improved touchscreen devices with a coating of graphene to make it more robust and durable.
Applied Graphene Materials plc (LON:AGM) produces and sells graphene products primarily in the United Kingdom. It offers graphene nanoplatelets; and graphene powder in a range of polymer matrices, including thermoset and thermoplastic, as well as adhesives, elastomers, oils, and aqueous and non-aqueous solutions.
