Graphene 3D Lab, Inc., has created Black Magic 3D, a commercial graphene-based conductive polymer filament for use in 3D printing to manufacture electronics.
“This graphene-enabled polymer filament is unique on the market in its ability to impart electrical conductivity,” IEEE.org said.
Black Magic 3D’s volume resistivity measures at 0.6 Ohms-cm. This is 25 times better than comparable 3D printing filaments that have a volume resistivity of 15 Ohms-centimeter (Ohms-cm).
“To demonstrate how the graphene-based filament can fabricate devices requiring high thermal and electrical conductivity, the company produced a battery. It seems that this battery design remains primarily to demonstrate the capabilities of the graphene 3-D printing filament,” IEEE.org added.
According to the company, the graphene-based filament can be used with many 3-D printers in the hobbyist and industrial markets.
