nano graphene used in automotive parts

2018-11-23 13:55 View:
Recently, graphene has attracted enthusiastic attention in automotive coatings, lubricants, coatings, polymers and battery applications.
 
    Nanographene will be used in automotive parts. Researchers have found a way to use very small amounts of graphene while achieving significant performance improvements—lighter, better thermal conductivity and less noise—that is a groundbreaking application.
    In vehicles, graphene is like a pair of super-powered noise-cancelling headphones that reduce noise in the cabin and create a quieter driving environment.
 
    According to foreign media reports, Ford announced that it will use graphene under the hood of passenger cars such as Ford F-150 pickup trucks and Ford Mustang.
 
    In collaboration with Eagle Industries and XG Sciences, Ford has proposed a method that uses graphene in more than a dozen engine compartment components such as fuel rail covers, pump covers and front hoods. Graphene is very thin, but very flexible, and has very strong sound insulation properties, which will be mixed with the foam to form new parts that are excellent in strength and noise reduction.
 
    Tests show that Ford's graphene-containing foams can reduce noise by 17%, mechanical properties by 20%, heat resistance by 30%, and most importantly, compared to the same foam without any graphene content. The material of graphene does not increase the weight of the part.
 
    Although the addition of a cover to a component generally increases the weight and thus the fuel economy of the automobile, the graphene has a lightweight property, which actually reduces the weight of the overall component. Debbie Mielewski, Head of Advanced Technology for Sustainable Development and Emerging Materials, said: "The breakthrough we made was not in the material itself, but in how we use it. We use very small amounts, less than 0.5% of graphene can be significant Improve component durability, noise reduction and weight reduction."
