Abstract

© 2022 Authors.Printed electronics are emerging technology products that we use in every moment of our daily lives. It is used in many fields from health, textile, electronics to communication. Inks with nanometal or organic content can be used in printed electronics. The ability of printed electronics to withstand temperature makes its use widespread in the electronics industry. Main aim of the study is to combine surface modified graphene oxide-based conductive inks with flame retardant materials. In this study, an effective and simple approach for the preparation of polyurethane acrylate (PUA) screen printing ink containing surface modified reduced graphene oxide (rGO) which has flame retardant activity. A new and effective flame-retardant additive; 9,10-dihydro-9,10-oxa-10-phosphaphenanthrene-10-oxide (DOPO), silane coupling agent and reduced graphene oxide was synthesized. In this synthesis, first reduced graphene oxide was modified with (methacryloyloxy)propyltrimethoxysilane, and then reacted with DOPO to obtain a flame-retardant monomer containing P and Si. Based on the successful modification reactions, screen-printing ink containing polyurethane acrylate and different amounts of modified graphene oxide content (0, 5 and 10 wt%) were prepared and screen printed on the paper surface. In addition, coatings were made on the paper surface to determine some the properties. LOI values, thermal properties, contact angle values, conductivity and surface properties of the obtained prints and coatings films were investigated. As a result, conductive screen-printing ink resistant to high temperatures was successfully produced and printed coatings and free films were formed.
