OCSiAl has announced the launch of its second synthesis facility for graphene nanotubes with a production capacity of 50 tonnes per year. The Graphetron 50 facility is currently the world’s largest plant for graphene nanotube production.
Anti-static polymers have been seen as an increasing requirement in the coming years. This is because the industries venture into more sophisticated electronics segments. There are many kinds of anti-static polymers available in the market. One of such examples are amines. However, these commonly used additives in the plastic industries are generally only able to give 3-6 months of resistivity and its performance become deteriorated because of it being migratory. Also often they result in “hot spots.”
