Composites and Resins
Lightweight graphene enhances composites and resins by increasing their strength and durability while also providing environmental benefits.
The composites industry consists of various types of reinforcements, such as carbon fiber, glass fiber and aramid fiber, which are embedded within a matrix material, often a polymer resin, to form a composite structure.

The combination of these materials allows for the creation of lightweight, strong and durable products with tailored properties that surpass those of the individual components.
The composites industry encompasses a wide range of sectors and applications, including:
- Aerospace and Aviation
- Construction and Infrastructure
- Alternative Energy
- Sports and Recreation
- Consumer Goods
Features and Benefits of Composites and Resin with Graphene
Higher load-bearing capacity and higher impact resistance, increasing composites’ strength by 25% to 35%.
Enables better heat management and thermal stability, especially where heat dissipation is critical, such as in the electronics, aerospace and automotive industries.
Increases the speed and flow of electric current, critical properties required to dissipate static electricity.
Provides a barrier protecting composites from moisture, gases and other environmental and corrosive elements.
Graphene provides composites with enhanced properties without increasing their weight.
Forms a protective layer that restricts exposure to flammable gases, preventing flames, and forms a char layer that acts as a physical barrier, slowing down the release of flammable gases.
HydroGraph’s unique turbostratic graphene provides stable and effective dispersion in resins.
Composites with graphene have equal or greater strength and enhanced properties with about 30% less material, reducing the CO2 emissions generated during production.
