Increasing Stability

Graphenes great strength and low weight, while still being flexible make it well suited to increase the streght of structures, ranging from buildings to industrial machines. In theory a graphen wire could be part of a space elevator.Today graphene is used to lower the weight and improve the firmness of sports gear like race bicycles, tennis rackets, and running shoes.

Future Batteries

Creating batteries with graphene can lead to higher energy density and energy weight, shorter charging times. Commonly used batteries like Li-ion can be enhanced by introducing graphene to the anode, using the materials high conductivity and surface area to increase performance.It has also been discovered that creating hybrid materials can be useful for battery improvement. A Hybrid made from Vanadium Oxide and graphene, for example, shows besides a heightened capacity, quick charges and discharges as well as a long lifespan.

Supercompacitors are another kind of battery. They store energy by using electrostatics instead of chemical. Supercapacitors with graphene allow them to be lightweight, have a way higher powersupply rate and charge much faster than Li-ion batteries, while having a greater capacity than conventional Supercapacitors. In addition, graphene can help batteries to perform well large range temperature of temperatures.

Flexible electronics

Electronics that have graphene components can be flexible, to make devices like Tablets that fold into Phones

Saltwater to freshwater Strainer

Researcher from Manchester developed graphene strainers, which filter salt crystals from water.

Superconductors made from graphene

In April 2018, scientists from MIT have found, that it's possible to conduct electricity without resistance. To do this, two layers of Graphene, one laying flat top of the other are twisted against each other by 1.1 degrees. While this process is difficult to mass production, this study has attracted a lot of attention among experts.There is another much simpler and suitable for larger areas and quantities. A group at the HZB created the superconductor by heating up a silicon carbide crystal until silicon atoms evaporate for the surface leaving two layers of Graphene that are not twisted, but lie exactly on each other. Interactions between the two graphene layers and between the silicon carbide lattice create a superconducting material.Superconductors can transfer energy without loss making it very efficient.

At the current date, graphene products are still rare and new to the market. Most current products take advantage of the strength and flexibility of Graphene, while Electrical Graphene applications are still in research and development.
Graphene Tec already provides with GT-Powder and GT-Liquid reliable, good quality for the industry and scientific researchers and can be delivered in small and industrial quantities.
