ABOUT XGNP® GRAPHENE NANOPLATELETS

Graphene nanoplatelets represent a new class of carbon nanoparticles with multifunctional properties. xGnP® brand graphene nanoplatelets have a “platelet” morphology, meaning they have a very thin but wide aspect ratio.  This unique size and platelet morphology  makes these particles especially effective at providing barrier properties, while their pure graphitic composition makes them excellent electrical and thermal conductors.

Unlike many other additives, xGnP® Graphene Nanoplatelets can improve the mechanical properties of the matrix material, such as:

  • stiffness
  • strength
  • surface hardness

Each particle consists of several sheets of graphene with an overall thickness that varies by grade. Particle diameters can range from sub-micron to 50+ microns.
