Graphene Uses and Applications in Cement and Machinery Lubricants


Graphene in Cement


Potential application areas of graphene expand as the time passes. One of the important potential usages of graphene is construction industry because graphene is strong and light at the same,which is perfect for construction.


It can be used instead of steel, but strength and weight are not the only parameters. Graphene’s the main problem is that crack propagates very fast ,which can cause catastrophic failures.


Researchers are trying to find ways for using graphene in construction. A group of researchers from University of Exeter used graphene in cement as a reinforcement material and tested. As a result, 2.5 times stronger and 4 times less water permeable concrete was obtained which proves that graphene can be a great reinforcement material in construction.


Graphene in Machinery Lubricants


Industrial machines mostly suffer from friction, and friction affects the durability, strength, efficiency and working life of the machines negatively. To minimize these effects, solid or liquid lubricants are used.


Recently, graphene, which has countless potential application areas, has started to shine out on this subject. Why graphene? Because it offers perfect friction and wear properties compared to conventional materials. It can also serve as solid or liquid lubricant. In addition, having a great chemical inertness, smooth and densely packed surface makes graphene to be a great lubricant material.
