UCF NanoScience Center Develops Program to Create Graphene Spray to Fight Corrosion

The University of Central Florida's NanoScience Center is developing a new program to make a graphene-based spray coating that would help multiple industries easily and inexpensively fight corrosion.

The center is building on the recent success of UCF spin-off Garmor, Inc., in making a powder form of super-strong graphene available to industry.

"We can use graphene and composite materials to produce new ways for automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, the military and even the medical industries to take advantage of this extremely powerful material," said Sudipta Seal, director of the NanoScience Technology Center and Advanced Materials Processing Analysis Center and a professor of Materials Science and Engineering.
