Oxford Advanced Surfaces, 2-DTech To Develop Graphene-Enabled Surface Treatments

Oxford Advanced Surfaces (OAS, Begbroke, U.K.), a pioneer and market leader in the surface treatment of polymeric, plastic and composite materials by the application of highly reactive carbene chemistry, announced on March 16 a new collaboration agreement with 2-DTech Ltd. (Manchester, U.K.) a subsidiary of Versarien plc.

The companies aim to develop a new range of products that incorporate nanomaterials, such as graphene, for integration into OAS’ Onto surface treatment chemistry platform to deliver enhanced mechanical performance and improved electrical and thermal conductivity.

OAS’s patented Onto chemistry platform is used to improve the adhesion of paints, coatings and adhesives to composite materials and engineering plastics, for applications ranging from transportation and aerospace to wind energy. Read the full article here.
