CVD Offers 3D Graphene Products

December 1, 2011

The CVD3DGraphene cellular material platform enables the development of new high-performance batteries, ultracapacitors, and gas, liquid, and bio sensors.

RONKONKOMA, NY /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- CVD Equipment Corp. (CVD), launched a new line of chemical vapor–deposited 3D graphene products that will be marketed under the trade name CVD3DGraphene and is expected to enable new high-performance products.

Karlheinz Strobl, Vice President of Business Development, states, "The CVD3DGraphene cellular material platform is based on a 3D graphene foam–like material having several 2D (a few atomic layers thick) graphene sheets that are mechanically and electrically fully interconnected in three dimensions. This novel, highly customizable material platform enables the preservation of many of the high-performance material properties of the traditional one-atom thick 2D graphene sheets. Such 3D graphene materials can be further functionalized by chemical vapor deposition, electro deposition, and/or chemical grafting to develop even more advanced materials for high-performance product developments. This new nanomaterial platform interconnects the 2D nano world with the 3D macroscopic world of products in a more manufacturable manner. The novel material platform is already being explored by innovators for a growing range of product applications. It is anticipated that as additional variations of the material are developed, more growth market opportunities will become available."
