Saturday, May 5, 2018 - 14:55

A faculty member of Ravansar Islamic Azad University has created Modified Bitumen through combining with Nano Graphene Oxide in Tehran Research Institute of Petroleum Industry.

According to an ISCA report, Graphene oxide (GO) has a unique layered structure with excellent gas and liquid blocking properties. It is widely used in many areas, such as gas sensors, carbon-based electronics, impermeable membranes, and polymeric composite materials.

The research, which has been carried out by Sattar Majidi and Milad Rezaei is done through combining certain materials with bitumen which prevents cause of asphalt damages.

As one of the researcher, Milad Rezaei, explained, the combination of nano graphene oxide with bitumen will have a better result in bitumen performance, cause nano graphene resistance is 22 times stronger than steel.
