Group NanoXplore specialises in the science of graphene and its derivative materials. Its proprietary production process produces low-cost, pristine graphene from graphite flake, while maintaining the large flake value (application versatility, thermal and electrical conductance, anti-corrosion capabilities). Environmentally friendly (energy efficient, no strong acids used or noxious gases released), the process solves typical production challenges (e.g., introduction of minimal crystal impurities) and is scalable to metric tonnes per month with very modest capital and operating costs. NanoXplore partners with its customers to integrate graphene into their products and processes, providing them with innovative products and a strong competitive advantage.
