Market - The world demand for tyres is predicted to grow to 3 billion units (US$258 billion) in 2019.*
Challenge – The use of G+ products in tyres can increase the balance between rolling resistance and grip i.e. decreasing rolling resistance and increasing grip.
Product – Pristine graphene nanoplatelets as rubber additives (Liquid G+, Pure G+, Zapp G+).
Application – Partnership with Vittoria SpA (www.vittoria.com) and other important industrial partners.
