A University of Manchester partnership is launching a revolutionary world-first in the sports footwear market following a unique collaboration with graphene experts.
Graphene paint is similar to other types of traditional paint. Paint is just one of a number of protective coatings which utilise graphene's impermeability to harmful substances in order to protect the material underneath. Coating the hull of a ship for example, could make it impervious to rust.
Looking ahead there is the possibility of adding conductive graphene paint to rooftops as a way of conducting energy and power the home.
