Polyacrilonitrile (PAN)/ Polyvinylfloride (PVDF) blends were modified by loading the graphene (0.5 to 1.5 wt %). The presence of graphene reveals the interesting surface properties. The decrease in surface roughness as function of graphene loading was confirmed by the topographic method of recording (two and three dimensional images) with atomic force microscope (AFM). The blends become smoother in nature due to occupied smaller surface area of graphene. This property may be useful for several applications in the marine, naval, nuclear domain and engineering applications as barrier medium.
