Curtigraph:
Leather tanning hardener that acts as a reinforcing
agent presented in liquid form which is used for tanning all types
of leather. It is especially effective for tanning leather free of
chromium salts. The resulting leather has an incredible tear
resistance that has not been achieved to date with any other
reinforcing agent.
Reinforced additive for cardboards, papers or wood:
The basis
of this product is the graphene dispersed in an aqueous media,
which makes it very flexible as it works on a molecular level,
interlacing and joining the fibres of wood and paper.
As an additive to the white glue the graphene adds a greater
force to the union, multiplying the strength in an exponential
form. Once incorporated in the productive process it provides the
following qualities:
n
Reduces the use of starch by 20-30% during the
manufacturing process;
n
Improves the cohesion of the components;
n
Increases the speed of machinery course by up to 5%,
reducing the cost of operation and the waste generated by
the production;
n
Improves resistance against humidity, ameliorating the
products used in extremely humid weathers;
n
It doesn’t separate due to cold or heat;
n
For chipboards and fibreboards, it diminishes press time and
improves productivity; and
n
Improves the superficial resistance and abrasiveness of
cardboards and papers.
The staff of Graphenano Nanotechnologies comprises a PhD and
an MSc in chemical engineering, two BScs in chemistry, a BSc in
food engineering, a BSc in aeronautic engineering, a BSc in
electronic engineering and a BSc in economics.
All of the team are working hard to introduce this futuristic
material into our daily lives.
