GrapheneCA has reported that it is the sole provider for all of the graphene being used in a major commercial construction project that makes use of the miracle material currently underway in Mexico.
In a statement, the privately-owned graphene supplier and manufacturer, said the new convention center, Centro de Convenciones Siglo XXI, which is being built 200 kilometers away from Cancún, relies on concrete enhanced by GrapheneCA’s 99.7% carbon pure graphene in its entirety.
The group pointed out that constructions that use graphene as an additive are anti-flammable, anti-corrosive, and share its improved mechanical properties, which makes graphene-based concrete ideal for wet constructions in high-humidity and storm-prone areas as well.
The company said the material is the next step in what is possible for constructions around the world: more durable, versatile, and cost-effective structures.
David Robles, GrapheneCA’s head of business development commented: “This project relies on a long-held dream of ours at GrapheneCA: to bring graphene technology out of the lab and to real-world use cases where it makes a meaningful impact.”
GrapheneCA said it has developed its Mobile Graphene Container Systems (MGCS) to meet the growing demand for graphene. MGCS’s are portable, green, and affordable graphene production lines that can be installed in-house, making the material viable for use in large-scale constructions for the first time.
Juan Carlos Palomino of Magnocentro Ferretero said: “It’s a great advantage for us to count on an anti-corrosive and anti-flammable material like graphene. GrapheneCA’s products have been essential in guaranteeing the durability of the Siglo XXI Convention Center.”
