Market - The global lubricants market for the industrial (process oils, general industrial oils, metal working fluids) and automotive (heavy-duty engine oils, hydraulic and transmission fluid, gear oil, passenger vehicle engine oils) sectors is expected to reach US$70.32 billion by 2020.*
Challenge – G+ pristine graphene nanoplatelets can serve as solid or colloidal liquid lubricants. They offer unique friction and wear properties that are not typically seen in conventional materials such as natural graphite.
Product – Pristine graphene nanoplatelets (Liquid G+, Paste G+, Pure G+).
In development – Collaboration with industrial partners.
