DAYTON, OHIO, November 15, 2019 – Global Graphene Group (G3) and a major Taiwan-based manufacturer have signed a joint development agreement (JDA) to incorporate graphene-enhanced materials into polyetheretherketone (PEEK)-based products for the semiconductor industry in portions of Asia.
PEEK is a high-performance engineering thermoplastic. The addition of G3’s graphene will improve the thermoplastic’s mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. As an excellent self-lubrication material, graphene can help lower the friction ratio of PEEK/Graphene devices and reduce its wear rate significantly. It can also improve its anti-corrosion properties against harsh environments by creating a barrier to the polymer matrix.
“G3 is excited to partner with this major Taiwanese company to develop enhancements to their PEEK-based products in the Asian market,” said Dr. Bor Jang, G3 CEO. “Our graphene and graphene-enhanced solutions will be able to greatly improve the performance of semiconductors.”
“This agreement helps strengthen our relationship with this company and will allow G3 to grow our business in the Asia,” said John Davis, G3 COO.
G3 expects to begin development work with the Taiwan-based company starting immediately.
