PPR TV has released an interview with Talga Resources Ltd’s Managing Director, Mark Thompson, regarding positive results on making concrete more conductive.
Talga has achieved outstanding results in creating thermally conductive concrete, which has a variety of uses. Since concrete is normally an insulator, the ability to absorb and dissipate heat means it could be used to house underground power cables without overheating.
“We are delighted with the test results of our first graphene enhanced concrete prototypes,” Mr Thompson said. “They demonstrate significantly improved ability to transfer heat energy, opening a range of existing largescale construction and infrastructure markets for Talga’s graphene and graphite products. Our European location is situated on the doorstep of these markets and major infrastructure projects, such as Germany’s ‘Suedlink’, where thousands of kilometres of underground power cables may require high thermally conductive concrete materials.”
Talga Resources Ltd (ASX:TLG) is a technology minerals company enabling stronger, lighter and faster products for the coatings, battery, construction and carbon composites markets using graphene and graphite. Talga has significant advantages owing to 100% owned unique high grade conductive deposits in Sweden, a pilot test facility in Germany and in-house graphene product technology.
