Observed in recent years - trends in the search for novel materials with unconventional properties arise from the constantly growing needs of the economy. An example of such a material is graphene, which in recent years has revolutionized the market and created opportunities to develop new composites based on graphene. Work on the creation of composite copper - graphene have been taken to improve the - first of all - the electrical conductivity of materials, but also strength and other performance properties. Are now being made various attempts to synthesize graphene and copper, among others, using electro-deposition processes, casting processes and the processes of consolidation of powders. It is suspected that the increase in electrical conductivity can be obtained in the case of the structure that is targeted. One in which graphene layers are arranged in the direction of conduction of electric current. Certainly, to obtain such a structure facilitates the process of continuous casting, and further processing the rods in the process of drawing further directs structure.Keywords: Copper-graphene composites, electro-deposition process, casting
