Graphmatech Develops Graphene-enhanced HDPE Solution to Reduce Hydrogen Leakage

Graphmatech has developed and sells a graphene-enhanced, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) solution that reduces hydrogen leakage by more than 40%, among many other improvements, as shown by extensive testing.
All test results depend on masterbatch loading and production method. This opens the possibility for graphene-enhanced solutions for fuel-cell vehicles and airplanes, among other applications.
Easy Access to Clean Mobility
Hydrogen leakage is not only an expensive waste, but it also makes the climate problem worse; hydrogen gas has an eleven times higher global warming potential (GWP) over a 100-year time horizon than CO2 according to Atmospheric implications of increased Hydrogen use.
Our AROS MB™ HDPE line provides an easily accessible lane to clean mobility, and it will help the industry towards better pipes and pressure vessels. Graphmatech is proud of our growing contribution to the green transition.” says Torkel Nord Bjärneman, business development manager at Graphmatech.
The AROS MB™ HDPE product line are masterbatches, suitable for extrusion, extrusion blow molding, and injection molding, now available in sample sizes of 1kg and 5kg off the shelf with technical data sheets.
