Application of "GS Graphene Battery" in lithium batteries significantly increases the number of charging cycles giving a battery a greater lifecycle. The use of our graphene applications in a battery also increases the energy density of the battery and reduces charge time.
Adding just 0.15% of GrapheneStar Additive to epoxy or polyester resin increases the strength of the composite by 130% and improves antistatic properties. Graphene can be added to thermoplastics, such as Nylon, for injection moulding applications as well as thermoset resins such as epoxy, polyurethane and polyester resin for cold casting or vacuum casting.
GrapheneStar Additives in paints and varnishes produce antistatic and conductive effects. Addition of GrapheneStar graphene also improves water-repellence and durability as well as makes polyurethane and epoxy coatings anti-corrosive.
Graphene-based Additive has an increased electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity; improved characteristics of impact strength (>70%) and the Young's modulus (>82%); increasing the strength of the adhesive joint to >180% (metal, wood, plastic, glass).
The addition of graphene nanoplatelets to polymers has offered significant potential for the development of advanced materials and various applications due to their high surface area, which can have a dramatic impact on mechanical and fire resistance properties. Graphene has been regarded as one of the most promising reinforcements for the next generation of high performance composites.
Graphene Star Concrete Additives contain a form of graphene nanoplatelets. Graphene nanoplatelets are particles consisting of multiple layers of graphene. This nano-material was selected for the unique and performance-enhancing characteristics it provides to concrete. During the formation and curing of cement, these tiny micro-platelets are able to take up space previously filled by air. Less air means higher density and higher density is directly related to performance improvements in flexural strength, abrasion resistance, impact strength and toughness.
Graphene Star Ltd develops a variety of graphene products to meet your needs. These include epoxy and polyester resins which contain graphene additives, conductive coatings, TIMs, antifriction additives, anode battery materials, anti-corrosion coatings.

Graphene sheet is a two-dimensional carbon allotrope. It is a versatile material with remarkable properties. It is light and strong which means that it can be integrated into a huge number of applications. Graphene also improves the performance and efficiency of current materials and substances, for example lithium batteries, but it also has potential to develop alongside other two-dimensional crystals to create even more compounds to suit a wider range of graphene applications. Graphene production is inextricably linked to application development.
200 times stronger than steel yet it is incredibly lightweight and flexible. It is extremely electrically and thermally conductive but also transparent. It is the only 2D material and is one million times smaller than the diameter of a single human hair.
The discovery of graphene involved scientists literally dissecting a piece of graphite layer by layer until only one single layer remained. The result was a one atom thick new material known as graphene. The significance of this monolayer graphite a.k.a graphene is that it can be combined with other compounds to create many other materials and can be used in bioengineering, energy technology, nanotechnology and composite materials.
Because it is one of the thinnest, strongest and most conductive materials, graphene has the potential to change entire areas of technology and industry including: electricity, energy generation, sensors, batteries, composites and adhesives.
Graphene is the world's strongest material and can therefore be used to strengthen other materials. Graphene significantly enhances the strength and durability of metals, plastics and other materials whilst keeping them light. Only a small amount of graphene is required to strengthen materials making it superior to other materials (as less graphene is needed to achieve the same strength as another material).
Graphene is used in batteries and supercapacitors because it has the highest surface-area to volume ratio. This unique property in graphene means that when used in batteries it can enable devices to store more energy and charge faster. It can also be used to enhance fuel-cells.
Graphene has anti-corrosive properties which is particularly beneficial for coatings and paints. It is an extremely versatile material and when added to other materials it produces faster and more efficient electronics, flexible displays, efficient solar panels, faster DNA sequencing and much more.
