Zenyatta Ventures and Western University Initiate a Project to Develop Graphene Enhanced Plastic for the Aerospace and Automotive Sectors

November 13 2017

Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. has started a collaborative research project with Dr. Takashi Kuboki at Western University to develop an advanced plastic (polymer composite) using Zenyatta graphene (or graphene-oxide) derived from Albany high-purity graphite deposit. An enhanced polymer composite material will be attractive to the automotive, aerospace and construction industries that seek lightweight materials with added strength, electrical and thermal properties.
Zenyatta recently experienced significant success using its high quality graphene to improve compressive and tensile strength of concrete in Israel and enhanced rubber composites in the United Kingdom. This new project may expand the Company’s business opportunities as a graphene nanomaterial supplier for the polymer composite markets also.

Zenyatta also informed about the easily exfoliation of Albany graphite via sonication to produce a consistent 1-4 layer graphene which was then homogenously dispersed into a concrete and rubber composite to improve performance. The dispersion quality of the graphene will be of paramount importance for boosting the performance of a polymer composite as well.
