Graph'Up Force
Performance Additives for the Mechanical Reinforcement of Materials

Graph’Up Force performance additives substantially increase the mechanical properties of materials and are available in aqueous phase (Graph’Up Force W) or in the form of a graphene/epoxy masterbatch (Graph’Up Force TS).

The Graph’Up Force product range boosts the strength of polymers or concrete, increasing their durability and range of use.

Increased Mechanical Strength of Polymers and Concrete

Graph’Up Force additives are ideal for increasing the mechanical performance and resilience of materials, allowing them to retain their mechanical integrity for longer even in the most chaotic environments (vibrations or impacts).

They provide excellent resistance to the loads and stresses to which materials may be subjected throughout their life cycle: traction, deformation, compression, impact, fatigue, delamination or crack propagation. They can therefore be used to increase durability by delaying failure.

With the numerous properties of the dispersed graphene produced by Carbon Waters, Graph’Up Force TS products also improve the thermal resistance of polymers and composites that can better withstand temperatures. Thus, with a single product, manufacturers can fulfill several requirements.

The excellent mechanical reinforcement properties offered by the Graph’Up Force W product range allow manufacturers in the construction industry to reduce the proportion of clinker used in making cement, and obtain concrete that is just as effective. In line with the objective of reducing CO2 emissions in the sector, this product range is seen as an ideal solution.

Graph’Up Force additives are predispersed and ready-to-use, suitable for applications in the aerospace, automotive, energy, defense, marine and construction sectors.
