Graphene Nanoplatelets represent a new class of carbon nanoparticles with multifunctional properties

Thermal Properties of xGnP® Graphene Nanoplatelets

Graphene is the most thermally conductive of the non-metals, with thermal conductivity of ~3,000W/meter - K. Translating this thermal conductivity to particular applications depends on loading, matrix materials, and dispersion techniques.

In addition to increasing thermal conductivity, graphene nanoplatelets can be used to lower the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of composite materials.

For composite applications, loading bears an almost direct relationship to thermal conductivity. Here is an example of thermal conductivity in a control epoxy.
