How does Graphene work?

Graphene possesses an unsurpassed combination of mechanical, electrical and thermal properties, and was first isolated in 2004 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at The University of Manchester. They used sticky tape to remove single layers from the surface of graphite and deposit them onto a silicon wafer, and went on to receive the 2010 Nobel Prize for Physics for their discovery of this gamechanging material.

In its purest form, graphene has a molecular structure comprising of a single layer of carbon atoms bonded in a hexagonal structure. It is 200 times stronger than steel and it is the thinnest known material in existence, The addition of graphene to our Advantage roof coating has been made possible through Alltimes’ collaboration with Applied Graphene Material Ltd (AGM), who specialise in adapting particulate forms of graphene for dispersion into different materials, thus enhancing their resistance to atmospheric, marine or chemical elements.

Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) manufacture production ready graphene based Genable® dispersions, with product integration expertise to deliver multi-functional performance enhancements across a wide range of applications.
