Results from mixing 2D fab’s graphene with starch-based adhesives have shown very good improved mechanical properties and enabled the production of corrugated board to run 30% faster and with lower pressure and lower temperature, which reduced energy consumption. Other positive results include strengthened adhesive joints, faster drying time and a smaller consumption of adhesive needed.
– We have been working with graphene enhanced adhesives for a while now, so we know that it works very well. One of our customers managed to increase production efficiency, reduce costs, and improve quality for various products. We are very positive about this project and can’t wait to get started, says Britta.
The project, which is funded by SIO Graphene, includes the entire value chain from raw material to final product to ensure a rewarding knowledge exchange and good development conditions.
The project will run from April 2022 to September 2024.
