Few-Layer graphene GUP® can dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of cement-based products
Poor resistance to cracking, low tensile strength and strain capacities are considered the major limitations of cementitious materials. Recent developments in the construction industry, seeking out a way to advance conventional construction materials, have stimulated the use of different materials at the nanometre scale.
Cement is the source of about 8% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. Using few-layer graphene a new generation of cementitious material with enhanced physical and chemical properties can be proposed into the market, with the result of stronger and lighter concrete structures with a significant reduction of the carbon footprint of cement-based products.
