Graphene 3D Lab, Calverton New York-based company has officially announced the commercial availability of its Conductive Graphene Filament for 3D printing. The new filament will be distributed through the company’s e-commerce platform BlackMagic 3D.
Graphene filament is compatible with commercially available 3D printers. The filament incorporates highly conductive proprietary nano-carbon materials. The conductive filament can be used to print conductive traces within 3D printed parts for electronics. Graphene 3D CEO Daniel Stolyarov commented, “We anticipate a wide variety of applications, including the 3D printing of conductive traces and capacitive touch sensors. We are looking forward to receiving continued feedback from the 3D printing community as we proceed with the development of a wide range of filaments with functional capabilities.” The Conductive Graphene Filament can be purchased for $65 per 200 gram spool.
Properties of this Conductive Graphene Filament:
- Volume Resistivity: 1 ohm-cm (the measure of a material’s resistance to electricity within a cubic centimeter of material)
- Color: Black
- Diameter: 1.75 mm
- Size: 200 grams
- Electrical Conductivity
The Conductive Graphene Filament can be used for following applications:
- High-Strength mechanical and functional parts: As the filament is mechanically stronger than ABS and PLA, it can be used to 3D print functional parts such as hooks, hand-tools, and parts which require tooling, including drilling.
- Sensors: This filament can be used to create capacitive (touch) sensors used to measure proximity, position, humidity, fluid levels, and acceleration.
- Conductive Traces: Another application of Conductive Graphene Filament is in the creation of electrically conductive circuitry for use in electronics, including interfacing computers, Arduino boards, powering LED’s, wearable electronics.
- Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Shielding: Capable of use in EMI and RF shielding applications critical for use in a range of industries, including telecommunications, medical device, packaging, aerospace, and automotive industries.
