Conductive Additives

Graphenes are used as performance-enhancing materials in composites to add strength, stability, electrical and thermal conductivity, and other properties at lower loading levels than many traditional materials.

The unique shape and structure of graphenes provide different application opportunities from standard carbon black. Our LITX™ G700 conductive additives enable better driving range and longer run times, which are critical elements in the performance of electric vehicles and portable electronics.

We are active in the conductive carbon black market and are exploring the potential for graphenes in plastics. Angelos Kyrlidis, principal scientist, said that "breakthrough" performance - not only in conductivities, but also mechanical properties - is possible with graphenes at very low loadings.
