Improve Performance of Concrete Mixtures with XG Sciences Graphene Additive

To meet tomorrow’s sustainability, reliability, and CO2 emissions challenges, infrastructure building materials will require new design solutions. XG Sciences groundbreaking xGnP® graphene formulations made for concrete mixtures show significant performance enhancements for construction applications needing to meet future requirements. Structures made with xGnP additives experience extended lifetimes, lower gas permeability and reduced crack propagation. Additionally, xGnP helps improve resistance to moisture absorption and acid attacks – helping ensure your concrete projects resist damage and remain structurally secure for years to come.

Multiple Benefits in Graphene-Enhanced Concrete

XG Sciences xGnP graphene nanoplatelets extend concrete lifetime and performance through increased crack resistance and compressive strength. Graphene enhanced concrete also offers the following unique benefits over incumbent concrete mixtures by:

  • Reducing initial pre-stress shrinkage
  • Creating a barrier shield for moisture, acids, and permeable gases
  • Protecting from corrosion of reinforcing materials
  • Improving performance and resistance in freeze-thaw cycling

Benefits in Asphalt

xGnP can also be leveraged in asphalt projects to improve thermal stability and flexibility to reduce cracking and improve asphalt longevity. xGnP can benefit your asphalt mixture by:

  • Increasing road lifetime performance, thus reducing resurfacing requirements
  • Enhancing thermal stability over the summer heat and winter freeze temperatures
  • Improving compression and flexural strength resulting in less overall concrete required

Current development is ongoing to fully unlock the full range of benefits on a commercially viable scale that graphene can add to asphalt binding mixtures to build more durable future materials.

Specialized Dispersions

XG Sciences also offers graphene for concrete in liquid concentrate and powder consistencies.

Ready-to-use liquid xGnP Concrete™ is in a semi-solid consistency that can be added directly into your mixing procedures with the proper recommendations.

Powder xGnP graphene nanoplatelets are in a form that can be integrated into your existing supply chain. Powder forms can also be post-process functionalized to meet your specific regional or application needs.
