Carbon Fibre

Market - The global carbon fibre market was valued at US$1.94 billion in 2013 and is projected to reach US$3.73 billion in 2020.*

Challenge – From aerospace and defence, sporting goods and leisure to industrial applications such as automotive, wind energy, pressure vessels, construction and infrastructure, compounds for electrical/electronic applications, and oil and gas applications, G+ could dramatically replace carbon fibre thanks to its good interaction with both the matrix and the carbon fibres together with its thermal and electrical conductivity.

Product – Pristine graphene nanopowder as additive (Pure G+).

Application – Collaboration with industrial partners. First application in the market: graphene-based rim to revolutionise the bicycle wheel..
