Paintable touchscreens: A novel ultra low-cost multilayer graphene embedded acrylic emulsion

Daniel Kang, Guam 16-18

I created a new, low-cost, carbon-based paint that conducts electricity. The material combines properties otherwise found separately: electrical conductivity; flexibility; low-cost; waterproofing; strength; eco-friendliness and; adhesiveness. This means you can apply wires dynamically onto any surface no matter the geometry or substrate, and even change surfaces into touchscreens. It is different from other competing materials, as they are made with precious metals such as silver and gold. Carbon-based alternatives do exist but are weak and low performance. Multilayer graphene, along with sonication and large-scale optimization solves for these issues.
