  • Patent number: 10626516
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an electrolytic copper foil for graphene and a method for producing the copper foil, in which, in the manufacture of the electrolytic copper foil for graphene, addition of nickel facilitates the synthesis of the graphene. The addition of nickel which serves as a seed in the synthesis of graphene on electrolytic copper foil reduces the electrical conductivity after graphene synthesis. As a result, graphene is uniformly formed on the surface of the copper foil. Further, the present disclosure may provide the electrolytic copper foil for graphene and the method for producing the copper foil in which an electrolytic copper foil having a resistance value of less than 300 ohm/square after the synthesis of the graphene on the electrolytic copper foil is produced, thereby, facilitate the formation of graphene on the electrolytic copper foil.

  • Patent number: 8795830
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method to provide a metal wire with a coating system comprising a primer and a topcoat, particularly a hydrophilic, lubricious topcoat. The method comprises applying directly onto the wire metal a primer coating composition, which is an aqueous coating composition comprising a multiphase vinyl polymer, the polymer comprising a first phase having a Tg in the range of from ?20° C. to 40° C. and a hard phase having a Tg in the range of from 25° C. to 120° C. The primer has good adhesion to both the metal surface and the topcoat, and provides the eventual coating system with, inter alia, a good flexibility.
