Producing High-Quality Graphene Product for Numerous Industries
This profile is part of a paid investor education campaign.*
NanoGraphene Inc., doing business as GrapheneCA, is a commercial-scale graphene and graphene-based materials producer and supply company that has developed a scalable and environmentally-friendly process to manufacture graphene. The company also provides graphene-based technology for its industry partners and clients.
GrapheneCA’s engineers have spent the past three years developing proprietary high-quality graphene and graphene-based technology. Founded in 2016, the company first began producing graphene flakes in July of 2017 from its production facility in Brooklyn, New York.
The result has met the challenge of integrating graphene into a host of real-world applications that are exclusively available via GrapheneCA.
The company offers a variety of graphene types, dispersions, composites, and admixtures. Each product contains multilayer, industrial-grade graphene that is ultrapure, defect-free, unoxidized and highly ordered. The most recent of these offerings is the upcoming launch of OG Concrete Admix, an all-in-one solution that is lighter, stronger, and more cost-effective than current products.
The development of a Mobile Graphene Container System (MGCS) is another boon that GrapheneCA provides to the nascent industry of Graphene-as-a-Service (GaaS). It is the first offering of modular graphene manufacturing that is both high-yield and portable, an important innovation for end users.
In addition to its products, GrapheneCA has invited over 400 companies across 40 different industries to examine the properties of the company’s graphene to enable rapid production and distribution of graphene products on an industrial scale. GrapheneCA’s products are currently being tested by over 200 enterprises from across the globe. These include items for cement, coatings, epoxy as well as applications for the medical, cosmetics, and energy storage industries.

The Market and Uses for Graphene
Graphene was first produced in 2004 when professors at the University of Manchester used scotch tape to peel flakes of graphene off of a chunk of graphite. The material has many applications due to its conductivity, strength, and lightness. These properties make graphene valuable in the transportation, medicine, electronics, energy, defense, and filtration industries.
According to Research and Markets, the graphene market is expected to surpass US$1 billion by 2023. Graphene’s electronic applications are primarily fueling growth in the market, and China is expected to be a dominant player in the market. Accelerated global sales of electric vehicles (EVs) and the battery market are also expected to play a role in the market’s development.
GrapheneCA’s Products and Solutions
GrapheneCA has developed a patented technology that produces green, unoxidized graphene. This technology is 100 percent chemical free and uses distilled water to create graphene. As a result, the company is focused on making two innovative solutions available to the market.
- Mobile Graphene Container Systems are portable units that bring graphene manufacturing to end users. A canny workaround to the problems of risky shipping and limited volume that affect the industry. With MGCS, high quality, ecologically-clean graphene can be produced in-house, anywhere in the world and free of any weather constraints. Production only needs a water source and electric, diesel or bio-diesel power. MGCS creates economical benefits as a result of eliminating markups by paying direct manufacturer pricing, using a local graphite supply and not needing to ship the graphene.
- GrapheneCA plans to launch the world’s first all-in-one cement admix in the near future. One that is stronger, lighter, more resistant to water, fire and chemicals, has more compression, torsion, and flexural strength. A potential solution to global rebar shortages that could, in turn, reduce cement job costs by 60 percent.
Moreover, GrapheneCA is working with several industrial customers to develop a variety of graphene-based commercial products for conductive inks, anti-corrosion coatings and paints, scratch resistance coatings, thermal management applications, water treatment and filtration, cement and concrete admixture, electronics and microelectronics, and polymer and rubber composites. To date, GrapheneCA has developed the following products:
- Graphene flake in different sizes
- Aqueous graphene paste
- Graphene dispersion in a low viscous epoxy resin
- Graphene-ironoxide composite
- Graphene-magnesiumdioxide composite
- Graphene-titanium dioxide composite
- Graphene-silicon dioxide composite
GrapheneCA has recently developed the technology to make reduced graphene oxide, which will allow the company to produce highly-functional smart products, such as inks, sensors, and gels for a variety of industries.
Aside from its industrial products, GrapheneCA is working on developing products for filters, smart sensors, and medical and cosmetics industries. The company announced that its graphene products could be used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. It intends to build a production facility dedicated to manufacturing pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in the nearest future.
In February 2019, GrapheneCA launched a second graphene production line in Brooklyn to keep up with demand. Later in March, it established in-house production of reduced graphene oxide (rGO), using proprietary technology. This allows GrapheneCA to direct its efforts towards a whole new dimension of highly functional smart products such as inks, sensors, and gels.
Solutions for Partners
GrapheneCA offers original design manufacturer (ODM) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) solutions through its partner program. The company applies its patented technology to off-the-shelf products to create a high-quality product. It can manage the full manufacturing process for its clients and partners to ensure quality or train its partners to complete the process themselves.

GrapheneCA’s Idea Lab NG Genius
As GrapheneCA conducted beta-testing on its products, it invited companies across 40 different industries to examine the properties of the company’s graphene. These partner companies come from the composite, packaging, medical, cosmetics, coatings, filtration, concrete, and energy storage industries.
The products are currently tested by over 150 enterprises from across the globe. The goal of the idea lab is to enable the rapid production and distribution of graphene products on an industrial scale.
