What is graphene and how can it protect metal roofs?

Graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon atoms arranged in a crystal lattice structure and has an unsurpassed combination of unique properties and benefits, especially for protecting against corrosion.

Scientists have been trying to study it since 1859 however it was only successfully isolated, and its incredible properties verified, in 2004. So now it has only recently been integrated into products that are coming to market such as tennis rackets, bike frames, and trainers.

Graphene is a form of carbon and has a unique two-dimensional structure which is what gives it its remarkable characteristics. It was actually the world’s first two-dimensional structure! This means that its atoms are laid out flat therefore one layer of graphene would be one atom thick.

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.
