The world's Most Immortal Material Just Went 3D

For years, graphene has been thought to be the strongest material on earth. But its thin, two-dimensional properties have always made it difficult to work with in useful 3D form - until now. A team of MIT engineers recently discovered a way to develop graphene into a structure that's stronger than steel and lighter in weight. By compressing layers of the one-atom thick graphene and subjecting...

Success in An Ethylene Plant

GRAPHALLOY® significantly improves the operation of pumps in difficult applications. Its advantage is demonstrated by its success in an ethylene plant in a Texas refinery. Ethylene is a very light hydrocarbon that creates problems in pump operation. Because of its low viscosity, ethylene provides minimal lubrication to the rotating parts of the pump. As a result, these pumps are prone to...
