Abstract

Graphite lacquer was simply sprayed on glass and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) substrates to obtain large area films. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) images, Raman spectra, X Ray Diffraction (XRD) spectra and current-voltage characteristics show that at room temperature, the as-deposited films on different substrates have similar morphological, structural and electrical properties. The morphological characterization reveals that the films are made of overlapped graphite platelets (GP), each composed of nanoplatelets with average sizes of a few tens of nanometers and about forty graphene layers. The thermoresistive properties of the GP films deposited on the different substrates and investigated in the temperature range from 20 to 120 °C show very different behaviors. For glass substrate, the resistance of the film decreases monotonically as a function of temperature by 7%; for LDPE substrate, the film resistance firstly increases more than one order of magnitude in the 20–100 °C range, then suddenly decreases to a temperature between 105 and 115 °C. These trends are related to the thermal expansion properties of the substrates and, for LDPE, also to the phase transitions occurring in the investigated temperature range, as evidenced by differential scanning calorimetry measurements.
