GC Shield

Strongest, Lightest, Most Resilient

From an original idea to combine the world’s strongest material graphene, with the world’s lightest and best insulator, aerogel, GC designed and developed breakthrough ballistic protection.

GC Halo

Dual action nanotechnology

In response to the global pandemic, GC designed and developed a patent pending graphene oxide / silver nanoparticle ink formulation, GC Halo™, proven to kill viruses, including influenza, RSV and coronaviruses, mould and bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.

Previously working on a joint project with Brown University to develop a graphene oxide formulation fabric coating to protect against mosquito bites – we significantly adapted and extended this formulation to establish an anti-pathogen layer on fabrics, independently tested and certified to have at least 99% virucidal efficacy when applied as a coating to filter material.

Vibration Control

Nanotechnology + innovative material engineering = strongest, lightest, most resilient materials

We are developing composites that have similar performance as carbon-fibre composites – but with better strength to weight ratios.

Using a production process similar to that used in carbon fibre components, we cure multiple layers of graphene-infused polymer, aerogels and other materials into a strong, lightweight material. This provides a higher degree of shock/impact resistance than other composites.

How GC composite technology can be used

For stronger, lighter, more resilient composites

FRICTIONLESS DESIGN

Low friction of the graphene top surface reduces drag

DISPERSING ENERGY

Aerogel provides thermal insulation, whilst the graphene disperses energy due to its high electrical conductivity

DAMPENING VIBRATIONS

Aerogel layers will dampen vibrations

THERMAL PERFORMANCE

Our GC composite will have a significantly lower coefficient of thermal expansion – crucially important in aeronautics


Case Study

GC AND 401 TECH BRIDGE

Read how the GC and 401 Tech Bridge teams are looking forward to eventually moving production of GC Ink and other GC technology to the new Advanced Materials and Technology Center anticipated to open sometime in 2022 in Portsmouth, RI.

With its opening will come the commissioning and availability of the plasma reactor, which will accelerate the adoption of nanotechnology in Rhode Island and beyond.
