Graphene-oxide coating to enable anti-rust paint, hermetic food-packaging and electronic substrates

Researchers at the University of Manchester developed a new coating made from graphene-oxide that can be used to enable ultra-strong non-corrosive coating paints, hermetic food packaging and even a good substrate for flexible electronics.

The researchers developed the graphene-oxide coating by taking graphene-oxide and treating it with a "simple chemical treatment". The resulting film behaves like graphite in terms of chemical and thermal stability but becomes mechanically nearly as tough as graphene.
