Abstract: Graphene and graphite were coated on steel plates by means of Electro Phoresis Deposition (EPD) for electrical conductivity improvement. Thermal treatment was used after EPD to improve the adhesion between the coating layer and the steel substrate. The highest value of the electrical conductivity achieved was 20 times higher than that of the steel substrate. The optimized EPD and thermal treatment conditions were identified. The coating-steel interface and surface structure suggested that good bonding between the coating and the steel substrate was achieved.
