CompoSmart products are altered with the addition of graphene, thanks to which the principal mechanic properties of the commercial thermostable resins are increased.
The addition of graphene works in for all the usual production procedures in the manufacture of composites (Hand Lay-Up, RTM, Infusion Filament Winding and Pultrusion).
With the addition of graphene, CompoSmart guarantees the following properties in their products:
High mechanical resistance
The mechanical properties of the polyester resin with graphene are similar or greater than higher cost and higher technology resins (vinylester – epoxy bisphenol A).
Greater structural rigidity
The CompoSmart profiles have a higher elasticity modulus than standard materials.
Resins altered with graphene have a greater durability with the same design.
Protection against hydrolysis and bacteria
Graphene has positive properties against the effects of hydrolysis and bacteria.
Lower weight, lighter
Resin altered with graphene allows for a product with a reduced weight but the same mechanical characteristics without influencing its durability.
Graphene favours polymerisation, which reduces the curing time. A lower cost per metre for production, promoted in regards to the environment.
Higher traction resistance
Thanks to graphene, the ultimate tensile strength is increased by more than 30% when compared with the standard GFRP profile.
The stoichiometric mix of polyester altered with graphene does not cause changes in density or viscosity.
Resistant to corrosion, chemical and atmospheric agents
Magnetically and electromagnetically transparent
Thermal and electric isolator
Made to measure
Wide range of colours according the RAL color standard, at the request of the customer.
