Titanium is an important structural material for a variety of industrial, commercial, and military applications due to its light weight, high strength, and corrosion resistance. However, utilization of titanium in many applications is limited due to its low thermal conductivity. Graphene-based materials, with excellent thermal conductivity, would be a perfect reinforcement material for improving both thermal and mechanical properties of titanium. XG Sciences has the capability to mass-produce graphene nanoplatelets in high volume, while ORNL has unique capabilities for low-temperature powder metal processing. Together, the two organizations see exciting opportunities to create advanced titanium-graphene composites.
