GRAPHENE: THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS TWO-DIMENSIONAL CRYSTAL
Although hundreds of two-dimensional crystals exist, graphene is indisputably the most well-known. Why is it so famous? Certainly, due to its intrinsic characteristics. In fact, graphene is made of a layer of monatomic carbon, which has a mechanical resistance about 100 times higher than iron, thickness being equal, and moreover, it is flexible and stretchable. It has extraordinary thermal and electric conductivity, its current carrying capacity being higher than copper. In addition, it is optically transparent, has a huge surface area and is a virtually impermeable barrier against the vast majority of chemical elements.

The ability to mix two-dimensional crystals with already known materials (such as plastics) opens up a scenario unimaginable until a few years ago
The ability to mix graphene and other two-dimensional crystals with already known materials, such as plastics, opens up scenarios that were unimaginable until a few years ago in the industrial sector, thanks to the implementation of composite materials with mechanical, electric, optical and thermal properties impossible to achieve until now. As producers, we wish to be mindful and sensitive to the needs of companies that want to innovate, able to solve any problems by putting at their disposal new materials that will differentiate them on the market, and capable of conveying their best image to end customers.
