In the latest video from Silverson Machines see how Silverson High Shear mixers are helping those at GEIC (Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre) with the commercialisation of graphene products. As graphene is exceedingly strong, highly conductive, very elastic and creates an almost perfect barrier, it’s an appealing material for use across a range of industries and applications.
One of the challenges faced when working with graphene is that it can be very tricky to disperse as it tends to agglomerate when added to liquid bases. The high shear energy from a Silverson mixer ensures that the graphene is dispersed well throughout the mix. The mixers will disperse pigments, dispersants and resin systems, completing the whole process. Since using the Silverson mixers GEIC’s production times have been reduced from several days to a few hours.
