Graphene Coating

Anti-Corrosive Coating Being Developed With Graphene

Technology firm Applied Graphene Materials is partnering up with Sherwin-Williams to develop a new anti-corrosive coating material using high material graphene. Graphene is a densely packed layer of carbon atoms that are linked together in a hexagonal honeycomb structure. There will be many uses for the new coating including protecting ship hulls below the water line. In ship hull applications the graphene coating will also increased the ship hulls lubricity allowing the ship to travel at higher speeds and improving fuel efficiency. Read more here.
