Conductive Thermoplastic Graphene/PLA Wire, 100 grams
Ordering Code:  GRAPH-WIRE

Conductive Thermoplastic Graphene/PLA Wire, a material by Graphene 3D Lab, is specifically designed to allow you to develop electrically conductive components by injection molding and other production techniques. The wire is a graphene-enhanced PLA-based material for use at room temperature and exceed the conductivity requirements for a host of applications.

Conductive thermoplastic (plastic which can be easily molded when heated to a certain temperature) material is widely sought by industry for electromagnetic and radio-frequency shielding, static-dissipation, and anti-static applications; our wire is far more conductive than required for anti-static and static dissipation, and easily reaches the conductivity required for electromagnetic and radio-frequency shielding with a volume resistivity of 1 ohm-cm.

Our conductive thermoplastic, which is significantly more conductive than comparable carbon-based plastics currently on the market, maintains several significant advantages over metals and surfactant coatings; namely, they are usually lighter, allow for easier handling, fabrication tends to be less expensive by eliminating secondary processes, are corrosion resistant, and they are usually inexpensive to ship.


  • Volume Resistivity: 1 ohm-cm
  • Thermal Conductivity: 0.28 W/(m⋅K)
  • Carbon Content: 16%
  • Wire Diameter: 1.5 - 2.0 mm
  • Processing Temperature: 180-190 degrees Celsius
  • Quantity: 100 grams
  • Biodegradable
  • Conductive Thermoplastic Graphene/PLA Wire is polylactic acid (PLA) based. PLA is a thermoplastic which is biodegradable and derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch.

Our graphene-enhanced thermoplastic wire is vacuum sealed and shipped with desiccant packs. Limiting exposure to water vapors will enhance processability. If, however, the wire is exposed to moisture, simply dry at 60 degrees Celsius overnight before processing.


  • EMI/RF Shielding is used in a wide range of industries and applications, including:
  • Telecommunications
  • Hospital equipment
  • Medical devices
  • Enclosures and Packaging
  • Automotive and Aerospace
  • May also be used for vibrational damping and electrical grounding.

Note: Decomposition occurs at 205 degrees Celsius. Do not overheat material. Graphene 3D Lab recommends processing no more than five times.

Do not expose to chlorinated solvents such as chloroform and dichloromethane. Exposure to water, acetone, and ethanol are acceptable for several days, but do not leave soaking for an extended time.

Our Conductive Thermoplastic Graphene/PLA Wire is designed to enhance electrical properties. Our pellets also offer thermal conductivity by a factor of 2 more than that of regular PLA.
