Graphene: the future for high performance materials – Victoria

This half-day technology seminar with Phil Aitchison, head of R&D/IP Strategy for Imagine Intelligent Materials Pty Ltd ImagineIM, will outline the value proposition for graphene and its potential for new, high performance polymers and composite materials.

First isolated just over 10 years ago, graphene is the world’s first 2D material. The thickness of a single carbon atom, graphene is the world’s strongest material (200 times stronger than steel); the world’s most conductive material; and the thinnest material on earth. These attributes offer enormous potential for new, high performing, “smart” polymers and composite materials.

Imagine IM works with leading research institutions to develop purpose designed geotextiles, resins and polymers.  It is amongst the first companies to commercialise production of graphene,  establishing Australia’s first graphene manufacturing plant in Geelong, Victoria in June 2016.  The company’s first commercial application is the development of a graphene coating technology that enables the production of a world-first conductive geotextile that will be manufactured and launched into the Australian marketplace by TTNA member, Geofabrics Australasia.

Who should attend

This seminar will be of interest to manufacturers, R & D and other professionals and students wanting to be informed of new and emerging technologies and their potential for high performance materials that promise major step-changes across a diverse range of applications and markets.
