Electrophoretic deposition (EPD) process for producing highly loaded, lamellar composites from organoclay particles in polar organic media.
Roll-to-roll EPD apparatus for producing continuous, thick composite films.
Electrophoretic deposition is a powerful tool for preparing layered composites in both aqueous and non-aqueous media. Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has extensive experience in the roll-to-roll codeposition of inorganic nanoparticles and sorbent materials (e.g., MOFs and carbon aerogels) with organic and hybrid polymers.
