What are

4 Keys for a
Successful Product

To create graphene-based products for real market it is not enough to buy a good quality graphene, 4 key points are needed and this is what we do at GrapheneUP®

Real Graphene

Due to the lack of standards for graphene production there are a lot of products in the market labelled like graphene but that cannot be classified as graphene. Using products that are falsely advertised has been stalling the development of the future applications. Our graphene is real few- layer graphene based on the ISO/TS 80004-13:2017.

Bulk Production

To ensure the success of a graphene-based product or application it is essential to have the guarantee that the graphene will be available in the right quantity necessary for the sales of the product in bulk quantities.


One of the key factors to create graphene-hybrid composite materials lies in the coupling between the base material and graphene. To ensure that its superior properties can be blended into the host material, it may need to be functionalised. This is where compatible chemical groups are added to the material surface to enable effective dispersion of the graphene.

Proper Dispersion

A prerequisite for property enhancement of graphene- based composite materials is the uniform dispersion of graphene in the matrix; however, the ultra-high specific surface area of graphene results in high van der Waals forces and thus induces a strong tendency to reaggregate. A well dispersed state ensures availability of maximum surface area of filler, which will affect the neighbouring polymer chains and, consequently, the properties of the whole composite.

GUP® Based Intermediary Products

Graphene itself is often not suitable as a drop-in solution to create final commercial products. Graphene-based intermediary products offer a solution to this problem, enabling customers to proceed in a more affordable way to create their own graphene-based products for the market, incorporating the intermediary products into existing products to enhance their performance or with the purpose to create new innovative commercial products with graphene.

Six Good Reasons to Use
GUP® Intermediary Products


Dispersion of graphene is not easy matter due to its tendency to aggregate and re-stacks: in GUP® intermediary products graphene it is already well dispersed and ready to be used


Intermediary products allow to obtain all the benefits of GUP® reducing material handling hassles, without dust exposure and with minimal housekeeping effort


Flake graphene has a very low bulk density, using intermediary products the logistic costs are strongly reduced


Health and safety concerns are strongly reduced when graphene is firmly dispersed into an intermediary product


Intermediary products increase production efficiency


Strongly reduced the “time-to-market”
