PolyGraph

Up-scaled Production of Graphene Reinforced Thermosetting Polymers

Polygraph_200

PolyGraph was a four-year FP7 project which took place from the 1st November 2013 to 31st October 2017.

The concept of PolyGraph was to develop new production techniques which delivered industrial-scale quantities of graphene-reinforced thermosetting polymers. These materials are suitable for use in a number of key applications where improvements are required in the strength, stiffness, toughness, electrical conductivity and thermal and barrier properties of polymers, such as fibre-reinforced composite resins, coatings and adhesives.

SAFENANO led the health and environmental impact assessment work package, involving detailed characterisation and assessment of the potential risks presented by materials and processes developed throughout the duration of the project.
