IMERYS Graphite & Carbon launches C-SPERSE 2053, a new water-based colloidal graphite dispersion well-suited for applications requiring electrical conductivity and lubrication.
C-SPERSE 2053 is a highly concentrated formula with excellent stability. It is a superior product offering significant cost savings for the customer.
Imerys Graphite & Carbon produces a variety of water-based dispersions in semi-finished and finished forms, depending on the customer’s requirements.
Semi-finished dispersions are grades without a binder added, which can be fine-tuned by customers according to the requirements of the final application and type of surface to coat. Finished dispersions are a specialty product, which are tailored to each individual customer’s needs.
Colloidal graphite dispersions are typically used in two different types of applications:
– Conductive material often used for making conductive electrical connections or electrodes for energy conversion devices and electromagnetic shielding, such as smart textiles and in printing electronics.
-Additive in friction applications at high temperature and pressure mainly in ferrous forging plants as a lubricant and release agent for dies, moulds, tools, die-casting, extrusion, glass mouldings, wire and tube drawing compounds, as an anti-wear solution for machining and cutting fluids, greases, etc.
IMERYS Graphite & Carbon C-SPERSE 2053 is a semi-finished, binder free colloidal graphite dispersion that has been specifically developed for use in demanding applications requiring electrical conductivity or lubrication.
Examples of potential electro-conductive applications include:
- Anti-static coatings for the automotive industry
- Smart fabrics and textiles
- Conductive inks
- Printed circuits
Examples of potential lubrication applications include:
- Hot metal forming
- Forging lubricant
- Extrusion lubricant
Similar products on the market are limited by low solid content, or in other words, a less concentrated formula, and high viscosity which reduces production efficiency. When compared with market alternatives, C-SPERSE 2053 is a highly concentrated and stable formula, characterized by high solid content and optimized viscosity, making it the superior choice when it comes to water-based colloidal dispersions for electro-conductive and lubricating applications. IMERYS Graphite & Carbon prides itself in delivering a high quality product that consistently meets specifications, resulting in cost savings for the customer.
