Manufacturing of water-dispersible graphene nanoplatelets
Electrochemical exfoliation of water dispersible graphene nanoplatelets is synthesized electro-exfoliation in a proprietary solution. Besides, water-dispersible graphene nanoplatelets can also been synthesized via solid-state approach. The nondispersible graphene nanoplatelets is ground with active materials until both of the materials mixed well and microwaved at high energy.
Preparation of graphene rubber compound
A latex compounding and co-coagulation method is adopted to prepare water-dispersible graphene nanoplatelets reinforced natural rubber composites. A designed amount of graphene aqueous suspension is added to the natural rubber latex compounding. After stirring vigorously for 4-8 hours, the graphene rubber compound is ready to be prepared as gloves, tyres, condoms and mats, but not limited to these items.
The rubber-based composite are the rubber include natural rubber, silicone rubber, styrene-butadiene rubber, butadiene rubber, butyl rubber, isoprene rubber as claimed in claim butoxy isoprene rubber, nitrile rubber, ethylene propylene rubber, chloroprene rubber of at least one.
