Graphene is emerged as superior reinforcing filler for the polymer matrix due to its superior mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. The present study relates to new graphene-based tubes, pipes or risers, whose specificities of geometry, chemical composition, microstructure and mechanical properties allow its use for transporting oil and gas. This technical solution aimed at improving the structural integrity of such tubes, pipes, or risers produced according to an exclusive method of manufacturing, and that have qualities much higher than those without graphene. Such products can be used for petroleum and gas transportation, including in deepwater submarine riser systems (>1500 m), with direct application in the oil industry. This project will be carried out in two stages, first is to establish the high concentration dispersion of graphene using the suitable surfactant, and second is to use this high concentration dispersion of graphene for the preparation of epoxy nanocomposites. The graphene dispersion and its nanocomposites will be characterized using various characterization techniques such as UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy, Flexural testing, Tensile testing, SEM studies.
