Possible 2015 commercialization of roll to roll manufacturing of high quality graphene

Graphene Frontiers is trying to ramp up roll-to-roll manufacturing of graphene. This could enable graphene to be used to in big industries. Graphene Frontiers’ method works at normal pressure, negating the need to make graphene in a vacuum. They plan to make sheets of graphene a meter wide.

Graphene Frontiers will be ready to commercialize several applications within a few years. By early 2015, it will have a roll-to-roll machine prototype ready. The three big applications will be desalinization and filtration, biosensing and electronics. Patterson expects to enter the food and water safety industries and, by 2018, healthcare.
