What is Graphene?
Graphene is a one-atom thick material – made from carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. It is the building blocks of Graphite, but graphene is a remarkable substance on its own – with a multitude of astonishing properties, which repeatedly earn it the title “wonder material”.
Graphene is the thinnest material known to man. It is incredibly strong – 200 times stronger than steel. On top of that, graphene is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity and has interesting light absorption abilities. It could truly change the world – with unlimited potential for integration in almost any industry.
Graphene is an extremely diverse material, and can be combined with other elements (including gases and metals) to create different materials with various superior properties. Researchers all over the world continue to constantly investigate and patent graphene to learn its various properties and possible applications, which include:
- computer chips
- energy generation
- super capacitors
- DNA sequencing
- water filters
- touchscreens (for LCD or OLED displays)
- solar cells
- Spintronic related products
How to package Graphene?
Protective Packaging help graphene producers around the world with solutions for storing and transporting their graphene. Graphene can be highly sensitive to moisture, temperature and UV light. Our products eliminate the risk of these affecting your product.
Businesses in the composite industry dealing with graphene use climatic packaging solutions. A 25kg vented sack is the perfect solution for the storage and transport of graphene.
Our 25kg valve sacks have a superior tear and puncture resistance due to the added layer of polyamide. We have also adapted our valve sacks to have an external anti-slip layer of polyester, providing excellent stacking stability and enhanced pallet stability.
Valve sacks are the perfect solution for protecting dried formulations such as powders, granules or flakes. After the sack is hermetically sealed, the one-way degassing valve allows any trapped air to escape, preventing the build-up of gases internally.
