What makes  G+® Graphene Plus a safe choice

Due to various production processes and distinct physical/chemical characteristics graphene materials differ from one another. Here below we explain why among different graphene materials G+® is the safest choice

  • G+® Graphene Plus is obtained by purely physical treatments of natural graphite, thus avoiding any chemical treatments with organic solvents or acids, and just exploiting water, temperature, and pressure to reduce the graphite thickness to the nanometric level. Many competitors use chemicals and often also nanometals within the production process. These additives cannot be completely removed from the final graphene enhanced product, thus potentially representing a health hazard.

 

  • G+® Graphene Plus is made of graphene nanoplatelets with a lateral dimension (X-Y) in the micrometer range. Only the thickness (Z) is nanometric. This is a key feature to properly categorize graphene morphology. Many competitors produce graphene particles which are nanometric in all the three dimensions (lateral sizes X-Y and thickness Z): such particles are strictly defined as nanoparticles and behave differently than particles with just one dimension in the nanometric range, especially in terms of biological interactions.

 

  • Directa Plus has always considered the health and safety of all stakeholders and the environmental protection as top priorities. Since our company was established, we implement a proactive approach to health, safety and environmental protection by monitoring our production process and products: continuously searching for new testing protocols and aligning with the latest research on nanomaterials and international regulation. In 7 years, we collected 27 certificates reporting the absence of negative impacts on biological systems.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Here we bring evidence of all the tests and reports we collected on HS&EP analysis.
