Park Particle Research of South Korea announced that its research and development team have developed new graphene-based materials for the automotive industry.
Online PR News – 24-April-2020 – Gangnam-gu/SEOUL – Park Particle Research have tried and tested the use of lighter, more reliable and higher-efficiency components for electric motor systems using graphene-enhanced engineering plastics in place of metals.
Next generation transportation vehicles are rapidly transitioning to electric propulsion. Electric motors and related vehicle systems are manufactured using mostly metal components, which can involve heavy parts, labour-intensive assembly, and undesired losses in the form of heat.
In comparison, plastics are lightweight; easy to shape or mold; and do not rust. However, replacing these metals with plastics will require innovative polymers with unique thermal, electrical, and strength characteristics.
Park Particle Research are testing and developing graphene-enhanced polymers with enhanced electrical, thermal and mechanical properties and by adding trace amounts of graphene to carefully-selected polymers, engineering plastics can be customized to improve electric motors and the systems they are used in.
Park Particle Research’s Chief Engineer, Dr. Choi Dong-Min commented on the research saying "Today’s next generation electric and hybrid commercial vehicles need to address the range limitation issue. Park Particle Research uses graphene to enable next generation commercial vehicles of extremely lightweight polymer structures.”
