GrapheneCA

Producing High-Quality Graphene Product for Numerous Industries

This GrapheneCA profile is part of a paid investor education campaign.*

Overview

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.

As a result, GrapheneCA has met the challenge of integrating graphene into a host of real-world applications. 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 company has recently launched its OG Concrete Admix, an all-in-one solution that is lighter, stronger and more cost-effective than current products.

GrapheneCA has also signed an MOU with Apis Cor to develop a 3D printing system capable of printing graphene material for the construction industry. The ability to 3D print graphene material could lead to a breakthrough in the construction industry as printers are expected to locally produce materials such as cement, cut the associated labor costs and significantly reduce construction times.

The development of a Mobile Graphene Container System (MGCS) is another technology that GrapheneCA provides to the graphene-as-a-service (GaaS) industry. It is the first offering of modular graphene manufacturing that is both high-yield and portable, an important innovation for B2B 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 and 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.

 

MGCS are portable units that bring graphene manufacturing to end users and offer a solution 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 create economic 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 has also launched the world’s first all-in-one cement admix, OG Concrete Admix. It is stronger, lighter, more resistant to water, fire and chemicals and 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.

GrapheneCA’s Other Products

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 powder
  • Aqueous graphene paste
  • Graphene dispersion in a low viscous epoxy resin
  • Graphene-iron oxide composite
  • Graphene-manganese dioxide composite
  • Graphene-titanium dioxide composite
  • Graphene-silicon dioxide composite

GrapheneCA has recently developed the technology to make reduced graphene oxide, which allows 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 the 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. 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.

GrapheneCA’s 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.

Aside from its industrial products, GrapheneCA is also working on developing products for filters, smart sensors and the medical and cosmetics industries. In February 2019, the company announced that its graphene products could be used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. GrapheneCA intends to build a production facility dedicated to manufacturing pharmaceutical and cosmetic products by the end of the year.

In July 2019, GrapheneCA signed an MOU with Apis Cor to develop a 3D printing system capable of printing graphene materials. GrapheneCA is tasked with designing an extruder and mixing system that can be embedded into Apis Cor’s 3D printer. The two companies believe that the ability to 3D print graphene materials could be a game-changer in the construction industry.

“Our planned collaboration with Apis Cor demonstrates our dedication to integrate graphene into the real world using cutting edge technologies,” said GrapheneCA Head of Business Development David Robles. “Imagine being able to print a residential 2,500-square-foot home in a day, for less than $8,000; or envision a mobile 3D printer that can solve current construction bottlenecks. These are a few of the ample possibilities and our discussions with Apis Cor could lay the groundwork for making 3D printed graphene a standard material in the construction process.”

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 200 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.
