Creating Conductive Coatings
Imagine brings conductivity to many different kinds of materials through our understanding of graphene, how to functionalise and apply it. Once a material is conductive it is able to react and respond to its environment and to external stimulation, it becomes a smart material.
Conductivity in materials enables many different kinds of functionality, including:
- Sensing (communications)
- Electrostatic discharge (anti-static)
- Thermal conductivity and resistive heating
Imagine’s graphene-based conductive coatings are formulated to make make materials just conductive enough to be sensors. The first industrial application for this technology was in the mining industry where our solution is applied to geotextiles and enables leak detection in civil engineering installations such as landfill cells and tailings dams.
