Garmor has developed an innovative process for converting insulative, polymeric fibers into electrically conductive fibers with minimal cost and no waste products.

A method for converting insulative, polymeric fibers into electrically conductive fibers

The method leverages Garmor’s expertise of graphene-polymer interactions and has resulted in composites with single-digit graphene loadings delivering conductivity as low as  high as .023 S/cm.

Shown below is a nylon fiber with 1wt% graphene oxide with electrical conductivity 4.81e-4 S/cm. Such performance is ideal for wearable sensors, ESD,  and other demanding applications that require integrated approaches to solving weight and measurement issues.
