In a prior project, promising results were obtained showing the possibility of using graphene/polymer composites as advanced materials having superior properties than the conventional carbon black loaded polymers. The composites obtained presented electrical conductivities with values of about 10-2 S/m when the percolation threshold was exceeded, an increase of more than 12 orders of magnitude with respect to the unloaded polymer. The goal of this project is to optimize these graphene/polymer composites, mainly graphene/thermoplastic composites, in order for them to be use for various applications, such EMI shielding, semi-conductive screens in power cables or stress grading material in high voltage equipment.
