 Project objective

Corrosion has been a perennial issue of concern for the metal industries, especially steel. Non-ferrous metal-based coatings are well known pre-treatments but due to environmental concerns and legislations (i.e. REACH), their use has been drastically restricted. The industrial community, pushed by these legislations, has been long demanding an economically viable and eco-friendly pre-treatment coating alternative, without having to compromise on the durability and corrosion performance of the overall coating system. With its outstanding properties, graphene appears as a promising alternative for non-ferrous metals in the coating market, having the potential to provide corrosion protection even when applied in thicknesses of a few nanometers. But the new graphene industry faces still crucial challenges, mainly production cost, quality and consistency. Our company, Carbon Waters, has developed a unique, patented, extremely controllable technique of chemical super-exfoliation to produce GRAPHENE WATER, which consists on dispersing few-layer graphene in water, without using additives and at a competitive cost. Its advantages face to competitors are unprecedented: our high-quality graphene dispersion allows for a stabilized, safe, homogeneous effect on the treated surfaces, ensuring optimum performance. Within this project, we aim to bring our current developments on graphene based anti-corrosive coatings to industrial applications and market readiness (TRL9). With GRAPHENE WATER, Carbon Waters will provide to the EU metal industries an eco-friendly alternative for surface protection, allowing them to commit with the regulatory framework without jeopardizing cost-competitiveness. Exploiting this technology, we aim to become a reference in the field of carbon-based nanomaterial products with expected income reaching €27.7 million cumulated revenues and 40 additional staff by 2025.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GRAPHENE WATER" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
