WearGraphene's graphene-enhanced jacket - a hands-on review

WearGraphene recently launched its Gamma graphene-enhanced winter jacket. I have spent a couple of months with this jacket, including two trips to Europe during the springtime, and here's my review.

First of all, the jacket looks very sleek (in my opinion, of course), the material feels of high quality. It is quite light, and packs very easily. There are many pockets, Velcro bands and drawstrings, which is really useful and helps you to customize this jacket so that it fits perfectly.

What's next for graphene in the construction industry? Graphene@Manchester's CEO sheds light on this fascinating topic

Graphene has a great potential in the construction industry, to increase the performance of materials and structures, to reduce costs and to reduce the environmental footprint of one of the world's most polluting industries.

After years of R&D, it seems as if graphene is finally get ready for commercial adoption on the market. Here's a short interview we did with James Baker, the CEO at Graphene@Manchester who's behind much of the progress we've seen recently.

Haydale launches next-gen graphene-enhanced 3D printing materials

A few years ago, several graphene producers released 3D printing materials enhanced with graphene. These materials enabled conductive non-metal materials, and enhanced the mechanical and thermal properties of these 3D printing filaments.

The market reaction, though, to these materials was cool. The materials did not provide a significant improvement, the price was high, and there were better alternatives available.

Researchers show that stretching can change the electronic properties of graphene

A research team led by the University of Basel has found that the electronic properties of graphene can be specifically modified by stretching the material evenly.

The researchers, led by Professor Christian Schönenberger at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute and the Department of Physics at the University of Basel, have studied how the material’s electronic properties can be manipulated by mechanical stretching. In order to do this, they developed a kind of rack by which they stretch the atomically thin graphene layer in a controlled manner, while measuring its electronic properties.

Graphene-enhanced G1 Wonder mask - hands on review

India-based Nanomatrix Materials (NM Materials) produces graphene-oxide materials and derivatives (such as r-GO) at its 20Kg/month GO plant, and the company recently launched its own brand of graphene-enhanced face mask, the G1 Wonder mask.

A few weeks ago, NM Materials sent us a couple of masks for a review here at Graphene-Info, and this short review will summarize our findings.

LiGC's laser-induced graphene filter based virus filter is now available for pre-order

Israel-based laser-induced graphene developer LIGC Application announced that its ViralWall air-purifier is now available for pre-order. The ViralWall costs $279, and will ship in April. Graphene-Info users can enjoy a 10% discount, just use this link to order and make sure to enter the discount code (graphene-info) when you checkout.

Using a graphene-based filter, the ViralWall "cleans the air from airborne bacteria and viruses and creates an invisible 1.2x1.6 meter air screen between people to prevent the spread of harmful airborne particles".

The first International Graphene Awards winners are announced

The International Graphene Awards (IGA) was initiated by the Chinese Graphene Industry Association (CGIA) in collaboration with 50 graphene experts from all over the world.

In 2020 the IGA committee offered 5 different awards: for best graphene products, best graphene firm, industry promotion, industry demonstration and honorary award for the most contribution people in graphene industry.

planarTECH IDEATI graphene mask - hands on review

planarTECH recently launched its 2AM graphene-enhanced face masks, in collaboration with IDEATI. The company (which is now in the last two days of its successful crowdfunding financing round in our Graphene Crowdfunding Arena) was kind enough to send us a few samples of the masks for a short hands-on review.

The face mask has a design that uses unique graphene and other carbon nanomaterials coatings that take advantage of graphene's antibacterial and antistatic properties. The coating has been certified by the Thailand Textile Institute to reduce staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538) bacteria by 99.95% within a 24 hour period, and it also repels dust. The mask is washable and reusable (up to 10 times).

"Graphene window" enables precise 3D imaging of nanoparticles

Researchers at Berkeley Lab, in collaboration with the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea, Monash University in Australia, and UC Berkeley, have developed a technique that produces atomic-scale 3D images of nanoparticles tumbling in liquid between sheets of graphene.

This is an exciting result. We can now measure atomic positions in three dimensions down to a precision six times smaller than hydrogen, the smallest atom, said study co-author Peter Ercius, a staff scientist at Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Foundry.
