COMPOSITE COMPRISING GRAPHENE STRUCTURES

Graphene has been used in nanocomposites as constituents/doping in plastics or epoxy providing dramatic enhancement of the mechanical properties but have not progressed past the laboratory level novelty. This invention can provide a graphene based composite structure with a density less that 1.9g/cm 3 for a fiber, yarn, rope or cable and a density less that 1.5g/cm 3 for a sheet both structure have tensile and shear strength greater than either Aluminum or Steel; thus providing a graphene material that is both much lighter and stronger.
