NanoXplore is a Montreal-based advanced materials company, the largest Canadian producer of graphene and one of the largest graphene producers in the world. We provide customers with graphene-enhanced polymers, including master batches in pellet form, few layer graphene powders, and custom graphene solutions. NanoXplore’s high quality graphene (i.e., high purity, with low defects) is very dispersible, enabling significant improvements with very small amounts of added graphene, typically less than 1% by weight. Our core technology is a unique, low-cost manufacturing process which produces industrial volumes of high quality graphene from graphite flake using a one-step and environmentally friendly method.
NanoXplore’s ability to tailor the final properties of polymers by adding trace amount of graphene, paves the way for engineering plastics in real world products such as electric motors, electronic packaging, and thermal management solutions. Today we are supporting innovators in the plastic, rubber, performance clothing, paint, coating, and energy storage industries, helping to enhance the thermal, electrical, and physical characteristics of customers’ products, while replacing existing harmful and expensive additives. NanoXplore brings together a team of seasoned business leaders and material scientists with the broad industrial experience required to enable customer-specific solutions.
In 2014/2015 NanoXplore scaled our graphene powder production from a few kilograms a month to an annual capacity of 4 metric tonnes. We engaged with many, many customers, provided numerous kilograms of samples and sold reasonable quantities of powder. However, the conversion from sampling and initial orders to large volume powder sales was slow and disappointing.
In late 2015, NanoXplore’s graphene enhanced polymer pellet facility came online. Customer interest was immediate and the company now receives frequent requests not only for graphene pellets but for support in developing graphene enhanced polymer pieces and components.
Partnered with Canadian mining company Mason Graphite, NanoXplore has access to lower quartile graphite/graphene production costs as well as a stable, long term, large flake source of raw material.
With production and R&D centrally located in Montreal, NanoXplore offers world class innovation and true intellectual property safety for its formulation partners.
