Why Graphene?

Graphene is a sheet of a single layer of carbon atoms, tightly bound in a hexagonal network. Graphene’s crystalline structure gives this material unique optical, thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties. The 2010 Nobel Prize for physics was awarded to the University of Manchester’s Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for their groundbreaking work in this field. Graphene is the thinnest compound known to man, with transformative potential that has applications in multiple industries.

Graphene goes well beyond designation as a mere scientific wonder. We actively use graphene nanopowders as multifunctional filler that simultaneously improves several essential properties of thermoset and thermoplastic resins, a capability that opens the door to a plethora of practical applications. The incorporation of graphene additives offers a useful technique to improve the electrical and mechanical properties of epoxies. As a vivid example, our G6-EPOXY™ products have enhanced resistance to stress, corrosion, cracking, and fatigue.

Additional benefits of incorporating graphene include increased tensile strength and stiffness, reduced flammability, as well as improved thermal and UV stability. Graphene reduces overall density, weight, and cost of composites, improve operational safety, and increase cured epoxy durability.

Our team has extensive experience and expertise working with graphene. We have developed proprietary methods and processes, allowing us to utilize graphene’s outstanding properties to solve many of our customer’s problems. Our graphene products leverage years of nanotechnology research and the hands-on expertise of our R&D team. As a result, we can create proprietary new formulations that meet the demands of our customers.

The Company has the capacity to incorporate graphene materials in various matrices such as thermoplastics, epoxies, and inks. Our facility is equipped with materials analysis and processing equipment. We have advanced in several thrust areas:
