Composites and plastics materials are responsible for the largest allocation of graphene material used today in commercial and industrial applications. Composites and advanced plastics have already created a revolution in the manufacture of automobiles, aerospace, sports equipment and other high-end applications. Graphene is now positioned to enhance these materials in new and novel ways. Learn what types of graphene are available commercially and how they can be applied to improve existing and even new composite and plastic materials. This presentation will; • Describe the type and characteristics of the most common forms of graphene used. • Provide examples of how graphene is used in composites and plastics, with actual products. • Discuss what users of this material need to know regarding handling and use.
