  • The global tire market acknowledges that employing graphenes within tire treads, walls and the inner linings can make tires lighter, provide better grip and reduce rolling resistance to an extent that is not possible with existing tire compounds
  • Key to the ability for Gratomic to establish the first mass-market Mine to Graphene to Tire, is the production of large quantities of graphenes nano surface modified to enhance tire performance
  • Gratomic is developing and commercializing its Graphene Processing capacity in Wales through its partnership with Perpetuus carbon technologies and prepared an additional 2 tonnes of Graphite concentrate for converting into high quality Graphenes targeted for the use and development of several high value Graphene applications.

Tire Outperformance Categories:

 Rolling resistance

 Braking/grip on wet and ice roads

 Abrasion resistance

Tires, enhanced with surface engineered graphenes, produced a greater than 30% increase in wear resistance over the competing Brand Tires, equating to an additional +30% mileage before the tire was needed to be replaced.

Furthermore, the results of testing carried out by industry experts employing industry standard dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) showed a significant improvement in rolling resistance, which indicated a greater than 30% improvement in fuel economy (increased MPG).

Results showed a greater than a 40% improvement in both wet and ice braking.
