What Is Graphene?

Graphene is an atomic-scale hexagonal lattice made of carbon atoms. Its composition results in extraordinary properties.

Isolated in 2004 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at the University of Manchester, it is the strongest material ever recorded, yet only has a thickness of one or two carbon atoms.

Key characteristics

  • The strongest material in the world – stronger than diamond, 200 times stronger than steel
  • Ecological – not harmful to the environment
  • Antibacterial effect


It is when graphene is incorporated into other materials that its true potential is realised.

Our shower trays with a graphene additive are re-defining the capabilities of traditional resin trays – stronger, non-flammable, recyclable, water-repellent, bactericidal… the list of benefits is considerable.
