Graphene Flagship Partners and Associated Members have released a number of products containing graphene to the market. Here is a sampling of these.
GRAPHENE MOTORCYCLE HELMET
Researchers from IIT and Italian design company Momodesign incorporated graphene into the exterior shell of this helmet as a coating. This coating allows better distribution of impact force and the excellent heat-conductive properties of the graphene dissipate heat quickly across the helmet, protecting the inner materials from thermal degradation. The result is a helmet with improved thermal comfort and safety.

CORSA GRAPHENE 2.0
Corsa is the tire of choice for professional riders in the peloton. Manufactured with premium cotton casing to conform closer to the road’s surface, and to provide a smoother ride, easier rolling, and better grip. Four compounds in the tread (4C) and GRAPHENE 2.0 allow for higher speed, increased wear life, lower resistance, and improved grip.

EL-ACU-1000 AIR COOLING UNIT
The Elesia Air Cooling Unit EL-ACU-1000 features an innovative approach in the design of high-performance air conditioning. Nanesa produced the evaporator and condenser unit through modern nanotechnology, using aluminium foam slices covered with a graphene-copper coating. These two components act as heat sinks, resulting in a compact system with exceptional efficiency (η>150%, compared to conventional systems).

GNext is able to apply a thin multilayer coating of graphene over a wide range of polymeric films, achieving different degrees of transparency. Our versatile system is compatible with continuous production using industry-level techniques. The thickness of the graphene multilayers ranges from 10 nm to tens of microns, is uniform on a large scale, and stable in harsh conditions of temperature and pressure.

GNext has developed a unique technology that enables the production of ESD bags for electronics devices with graphene. Replacing metals such as aluminium with graphene allows the bags to be recycled as pure polymer. Environmental and economic costs of those products are increasing, but with greener processes, it is now possible to save money and make a sustainable investment.

Cambridge Graphene uses a scalable production process for its graphene ink, developed at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, University of Cambridge. The process allows for a range of ink formulations to be manufactured in order to meet the requirements of different printing methods and substrates. Currently, all Cambridge Graphene inks are aqueous, environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

(VIS-SWIR) LINEAR ARRAY DETECTOR
Emberion introduces a novel cost-competitive graphene-based linear array sensor with tailor made CMOS read-out circuits. The product detects Vis-SWIR spectral range (400 – 1800 nm extending up to 2000 nm) designed primarily for spectrometers. The 512 x 1-pixel linear array provides consistent responsivity with very low noise and high dynamic range over a broad spectrum.

The Neutron is the first roll to roll system capable of depositing large area graphene onto metal foils under ambient conditions. Since the Neutron does not require a vacuum, it can be easily placed inline at manufacturing, enabling truly cost-effective graphene production.
Aixtron – aixtron.com
The CCS is the reactor of choice for leading universities, R&D institutes and industry for growing world-class 2D nanomaterials. The platform uses AIXTRON’s scalable showerhead and heating technology to enable the growth of 2D materials onto wafers without requiring a catalyst.

MEDIADEVIL CB-01 EARPHONES WITH NANENE GRAPHENE ENHANCED AUDIO
MediaDevil’s CB-01 earphones, compatible with any 3.5 mm connector jack port, are manufactured with a graphene coating called Nanene® Graphene-Enhanced Audio. Nanene enables the production of an earphone diaphragm that is thinner and more flexible than one from traditional materials, enhancing both the high-end (treble) and the low-end (bass) of the audio frequency wave.

AVANGRM-RUBBER: THERMAL DISSIPATION FOR RUBBER
AvanGRM-rubber integrates graphene materials with rubber; a polymer with traditionally low levels of thermal conductivity. The use of graphene in rubber-based components, such as housing in automotive components, increases heat dissipation and ultimately results in higher thermal conductivity, greater product shelf life, and improved performance.
