Graphene Composites and Black Swan Graphene forge partnership for graphene supply

Graphene Composites (GC), a leading advanced materials engineering company, and Black Swan Graphene Inc, a world leader in production and commercialization of patented high-performance and low-cost graphene products, announce a successful partnership for the supply of Black Swan’s graphene for use in GC Shield®, a patented ballistic protection technology.

GC Shields bring unrivalled, lightweight ballistic protection to the law enforcement and defence sectors. Advanced materials using GC’s patented nanotechnology graphene/aerogel composite mean the shields have unique force dispersion capabilities enabling protection against multiple shots, stacked rounds and edge shots and importantly, with minimal back face deformation. GC Shields are among the strongest, lightest and most resilient ballistic shields available.


BLACK SWAN GRAPHENE ENSURES STABLE, HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCTS

“The quality, stability and purity of graphene produced by Black Swan and used in the manufacture of GC Shields, ensures that we have a very stable product” says Dr Steve Devine, CTO at GC, “coupled with their ISO-quality manufactured products, scale and pricing, Black Swan provides significant reassurance for ongoing quality, costs and production in the supply chain”.


EXTENDING GC SHIELD TECHNOLOGY TO OTHER APPLICATIONS

GC are currently extending the GC Shield technology using Black Swan graphene to other applications where the strength, resilience and lightweight composite provides significant protection including vehicle armour with certified Stanag Level 1 tests.
