CamGraph® Conductive Resin: Shielding electronics from EMI with ultra-high-quality graphene
Polymer composites are radically improving our lives in a number of ways. For example modern aircraft have over 50% of their fuselage made up of carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) which allow longer flights and reduced fuel use. Advantages of polymer composites include lightweight (approx. 50% lighter than aluminium), high chemical resistance, high mechanical stability and ease of fabrication. At FGV Cambridge Nanosystems, we are improving the properties of existing composites through the addition of our carbon nanomaterials. These nanomaterials are used to fabricate isotropic polymer composites with high electrical conductivity. In addition, our carbon nanomaterials improve the mechanical properties of the matrix material by at least 10%.
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is a growing problem where external radiation interferes with the operation of sensitive electronics.
FGV Cambridge Nanosystems has developed an alternative to traditional EM shields. Our conductive resin can provide EMI shielding that is lightweight and has maximum design flexibility. Specific applications include:
- Autonomous systems in cars
- GPS units
Regions of electrical conductivity required to achieve electrostatic dissipation, EMI shielding
and lightning stike protection.
