eGraf® SpreaderShield™ flexible graphite heat spreader materials are a unique line of products capable of cooling a hot component, protecting a temperature-sensitive component, reducing a thermal gradient, or preventing a surface hot spot. SpreaderShield flexible graphite is a thermal material ideal for a wide range of electronics applications, from the thinnest and lightest smartphones to high-power devices.

eGraf® HiTherm™ thermal interface materials (TIMs) are designed for long-life, mission-critical applications that have extreme heat cycles, require low contact resistance, and high thermal conductivity. HiTherm TIMs are thermal interface sheets made of flexible graphite specifically engineered for demanding solid-state lighting, computing, and power electronics applications.

Graf+® graphite powders can be added to a range of polymers to enhance thermal and electrical conductivity, reduce degradation to UV radiation, and increase insulation value in foams and boards. NeoGraf’s Graf+ natural and synthetic graphite powders and graphene nanoplatelets (GNP’s) are available in a range of particle sizes, BET surface areas, Scott densities, and purities depending on the end use application.

Graf-X Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNPs) can be added to a range of materials to increase mechanical strength, enhance thermal & electrical conductivity, and provide barrier properties. Graf-X graphene nanoplatelets are available in a range of lateral platelet dimensions, BET surface areas, and purities depending on the end use application. NeoGraf also provides Graf-X Graphene Precursors (GPs), specially designed graphite materials ready for further processing or conversion into graphene products.

NeoGraf Solutions, LLC offers a variety of masterbatches incorporating its Graf-X™ graphene nanoplatelets, Graf+® graphite powder, and GrafGuard® expandable graphite additives. Graphene, graphite, and expandable graphite additives can be added to polymers to boost their electrical, thermal, mechanical and fire-retardant properties. The use of masterbatches is favored by customers who prefer the convenience of handling pellets rather than powders in their manufacturing processes.

GrafGuard® expandable graphite flake is a non-halogenated fire retardant additive for materials that require improved fire-protection characteristics. It can be found in building materials and automotive applications to meet increasingly stringent fire safety codes. GrafGuard materials also improve the performance of fire-retardant additives such as phosphates, magnesium hydroxide and nitrogen compounds.

GraFoil® material was first introduced in 1967 as the original flexible graphite technology. This graphite foil was quickly utilized as the first fluid sealing material made exclusively from pure, natural graphite flake. Its resistance to heat, fire, corrosion, and aggressive chemicals makes it the most universally applicable sealing solution in the market today.

NeoGraf has been designing flexible graphite for the Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC) since the 1990’s. Our GrafCell materials portfolio represents 20+ years of optimized bill of material and processing parameters to provide the most reliable flexible graphite for conversion into Flow Field Plates (FFPs). These materials have been successfully used in high power density applications such as mass transportation, fleet service vehicles, and material handling equipment.

NeoGraf Solutions offers jet milling services to satisfy your pilot and production scale particle size reduction needs over a broad range of carbon and graphite-based materials. Custom milling and contract manufacturing is available upon request including tightly controlled graphitization to 2000+ degrees C. NeoGraf’s value-added capabilities include access to carbon and graphite material scientists, as well as full characterization and material testing.

Building & Construction

Graphite’s endless possibilities never cease to amaze, even the most technically advanced minds in building and construction. Our treated graphite can be inert for years, but when exposed to the heat of a fire, it instantly expands to several hundred times its original volume, providing both a fire-stop and a smoke-suppressing char layer. NeoGraf has created a portfolio of graphite additives, some with fire retardant properties and some with electrical/thermal characteristics for use in putties, coatings, foams, roofing materials, and concrete.

Science

Bringing the Thermal Management Methods of Consumer Electronics to Transportation Batteries Using SpreaderShield™ Flexible Graphite

In many early battery-powered electric vehicles, cell temperatures were controlled by aluminum. It was a time-tested thermal management material and it could take on some of the structural duties of the battery pack. Battery pack designers recognized aluminum’s drawbacks and began looking for alternative thermal management materials. To spread the same amount of heat as an aluminum plate, NeoGraf Solutions’ SpreaderShield™ flexible graphite is only half of the thickness and one-third of the weight. […..] Learn More
