Cooling technology that could change the game in Formula 1 and and motorsport in general. Watch as former McLaren mechanic Marc Priestley talks about graphene.
Talking about a revolutionary graphene cooling technology (that Mark is involved with) that could be on the verge of transforming F1, motorsport in general, electric cars and much more.
Starting about 2mins 49 – Mark talks with Shannon Notley of Flexegraph. The first part of the video was filmed four years ago and provides context. Mark talks with Shannon on real world cooling fluid possibilities and what has happened since that first clip. He also discloses that he is an investor in the Australian company.
Flexegraph are focussed on “fluid type applications”. As Shannon explains putting graphene in another liquid can enhance the thermal properties quite substantially.
From the Flexegraph site their focus is described as
“FlexeGRAPH is an Australian based start-up delivering nano-enhanced solutions for cooling and heat transfer applications. Established in 2015 as a spin-out from ANU in Canberra to exploit water based nanofluids for engine cooling, FlexeGRAPH has grown it’s product portfolio, driving into new market segments.
The founding team has extensive experience in developing and formulating advanced fluids with research into new fluid chemistries a key priority.
Our product range is continually evolving and we are able to work with end-user partners and chemicals manufacturers to achieve the performance required for their specifications.”
(On their technology) “FlexeGRAPH has developed a family of fluids enhanced with nanotechnology to replace existing water and glycol based coolants and liquids used in heat transfer applications. Our patented, breakthrough technology, allows 60% improved heat exchange compared with market leading materials providing unprecedented performance for liquids used in applications where managing and directing high thermal loads is critical.
