Several trade shows and conferences gather graphene specialists every year. Among those that focus the most on industrial impacts, there is the IDTechEx Show.

Organised by a marketing research company specialised in emerging and impact technologies, IDTechEx. This trade show takes place in Europe in the spring and in the United States in the autumn.

The last edition, which took place at Santa Clara on the 20th and 21st of November 2019, gathered 250 stallholders and 3500 participants… including Alban Chesneau, CEO of Carbon Waters.

“IDTechEx invited Carbon Waters to present its technology. I spoke to an audience that included industrial actors and technological experts. This type of event allows us to publicise our innovations in the field of anticorrosion and material protection to a very international public.”

Reassuring competition analysis


300 companies were on site to present their solutions at Santa Clara, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

Graphene was the main topic, but also printed electronics, energy storage and MtoM sensors.

“During the trade show, I met several European, American and Japanese companies, says Alban Chesneau. We are currently in communication with some of them. Possibly future partners?

IDTechEx Show was also an opportunity to conduct a competition analysis for the sector. And I must say I was reassured: Carbon Waters is keeping its head start!

It is interesting, however, to see that large industrial groups such as Ford are already incorporating graphene at a large scale. In this case in cars and more particularly in polyurethane foams.

It has to be said that graphene makes it possible to significantly improve the mechanical resistance and thermal diffusion of these foams. Then we can replace the metal with a polymer that needs to be reinforced with this material.

Graphene can look forward to a prosperous future!” And so can Carbon Waters.
