Grox utilizes a patent-pending technology developed at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville. Our technology utilizes a novel way to functionalize graphene by fully oxidizing GO with various trivalent metallic cations. This process can yield a variety of new materials with with enhanced physical and mechanical properties when compared to the individually, non-bonded metals.

Our ability to bond multiple elements to graphene lends a litany of new materials with mechanical improvements for companies wishing to improve native coatings' thermal or electrical conductivity/insulation, tensile strength, hydrophobicity, and targeted optical wavelength absorption/reflectivity.
