Graphene, a Nobel Prize-winning nanomaterial, is both the strongest and the lightest material known. Graphene is a two-dimensional crystal only an atom thick.


It is 200 times stronger than steel but six times lighter.

Conducts electricity better than copper.

UV and corrosion resistant.

Highly impermeable, even to hydrogen and helium.


Antimicrobial properties.

It can be functionalized to create different graphene materials for each application.

Use of graphene for the purification and/or desalination of water Graphene materials, that is, Graphene, Graphene Oxide (GO) and Reduced Graphene Oxide (rGO), are carbon nanostructures that, thanks to their size, area, and surface chemistry, allow the design o new three-dimensional and multifunctional materials with high probabilities. to solve the problems associated with water scarcity. For example, they are potential coagulant/flocculating agents, this is because they have a large surface area along which there are

New generation of lime paints with Graphene Although the exact date on which lime was discovered by man is not known, there are records dating back more than 14,000 years regarding its use. In the case of Mexico, it has been used since pre-Hispanic times both for construction and for nixtamalization, in ancient Greece it was used to color numerous frescoes (2800 B.C.- 1000 A.D.), the Chinese wall was built after stabilizing the soil with

GRAPHENE OXIDE COATING SYSTEMS FOR CORROSION PROTECTION Corrosion is the greatest challenge that many industries in the world must face. Currently, there is a wide variety of coatings on the market for protection against corrosion. However, most of these coatings do not have the physicochemical characteristics necessary for good performance. These coatings does not have perfect barriers and eventually fail, their chemical resistance depends on their impermeability to chemical substances, and with it their resistance

ANTICORROSIVE PRIMER WITH GRAPHINE OXIDE Corrosion is an electrochemical reaction that occurs when the metal reacts with the surrounding environment forming ferric oxide, causing the metal to lose its main characteristics of hardness and resistance. Oxygen, temperature, humidity, contaminants, gases, and the physicochemical characteristics of water are the main factors that affect the rate at which metals corrode. One of the most widely used methods to control corrosion is the application of protective (primer) coatings

ANTICORROSIVE COATINGS WITH GRAPHENE OXIDE Corrosion is defined as the gradual deterioration of metallic materials and their properties, and occurs when the metal reacts with the surrounding environment to form rust or another chemical compound. In general, atmospheric air, humidity, rain, and aqueous solutions (chemical products) are the environments that are most frequently associated with corrosion problems. Nowadays, corrosion damage is one of the most important problems to face for many industries in the world.

Antimicrobial Graphene Coatings In less than 20 years the world has faced a series of abnormal phenomena caused by highly infectious pathogens. The easy and rapid transmission of infections forces us to seek increasingly efficient strategies to strengthen health services, in addition to representing a radical change in our lifestyle, where extreme hygiene techniques are in first place of importance to avoid the spread and massive contagion inside and outside hospitals. Viral diseases of greater

Graphene in the paper industry The paper industry represents a very broad and versatile market, in fact and despite the challenges it faces due to the impact of digital media and its competition with plastic, its world production continues to be considerable, exceeding 400 million tons distributed in products for containers and packaging, for hygienic and sanitary use, as well as paper for printing, writing and the press. “It is estimated that by the end

GRAPHENE OXIDE: GENERALITIES, USES AND APPLICATIONS Since graphene was isolated for the first time in 2004 by the Manchester group, this nanomaterial has proven to be the most revolutionary for the development of new applications at an industrial level. Graphene has extraordinary electrical, optical, thermal properties and high mechanical resistance. The properties of graphene are attributed to its structure in the form of two-dimensional (2D) sheets, made up of hexagonally bonded carbon atoms and a

GRAPHENE IN THE COATINGS AND PAINTS INDUSTRY Graphene is currently the most revolutionary nanotechnological additive in the coatings and paints industry. Coatings are regularly used for decorative purposes and for surface protection, especially for protection against corrosion, humidity, fouling, mechanical wear, among others. At a commercial level, there is a wide variety of coatings based on different types of resins and additives, their efficiency is generally associated with an increase in cost. However, the coatings
