HydroGraph’s mass production method for graphene reportedly opens up opportunities for the practical applications of conductive ink patterns.
TORONTO — HydroGraph Clean Power Inc., a commercial manufacturer of nanomaterials and alternative-energy fuels, has launched its patented graphene ink, a form of “conductive ink” that maintains the valuable qualities of graphene including strength, non-toxicity, flexibility, and optical transparency. As the name suggests, conductive ink is a material that conducts energy with the utility of an ink. This development marks a step toward the production of foldable and wearable electronics.
“This is a significant milestone in renewable technology production. From touch screen displays, biosensors, radio frequency identification tags, electric vehicle batteries, and more, the technology’s applications are vast,” said Stuart Jara, HydroGraph chief executive officer.
With growing possibilities for printed electronics every day, the need for conductive inks like graphene ink is on the rise. HydroGraph’s mass production method for graphene reportedly opens up opportunities for the practical applications of conductive ink patterns.
“Once the ink is made, it can then be deployed in regular inkjet printers to make small-scale, flexible electronics. This puts manufacturing capabilities into the reach of many, making it far more accessible,” said Dr. Chris Sorensen, HydroGraph vice president R&D.
HydroGraph’s graphene ink technology with performance characteristics and fewer production barriers is covered in the “Nano-inks of Carbon Nanomaterials for Printing and Coating” patent.
HydroGraph is certified by the Graphene Council and is currently producing high purity graphene with no batch-to-batch variation.
