Graphene Frontiers, a developer of graphene materials and device technology, has partnered with Madico, a multilayer film development manufacturer.
According to the companies, the partnership will drive the commercial potential of graphene within the energy sector.
Madico utilizes wide-format roll-to-roll processing to embed unique features into film constructs that help to solve segment challenges. Graphene Frontiers recently partnered with the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany, NY to continue fine-tuning its material manufacturing process while forging business relationships with leaders in the consumer electronics industry.
Single-layer graphene films manufactured at industrial scale have recently become a coveted commodity in the energy sector. Scientists in Michigan have developed an inexpensive three-dimensional graphene honeycomb that they say can replace the expensive platinum used in solar cells. Researchers in California are using graphene to make a micro supercapacitor, a battery that charges quickly and will hold a large amount of energy for a long time.
