Started two years ago, the company combines graphene, aerogel and other advanced materials into strong, light and resilient composites for the armour, aerospace and renewable energy sectors. The new GC Shield protects against low energy gun and knife attacks - and it fits in a school bag.

  • Developed graphene/aerogel composites for armour, aerospace and energy
  • Patents pending include potentially the first graphene/aerogel armour
  • GC Shield Wall protects groups against low energy gun/knife attacks
  • Partner with UK Manufacturing Catapult Centre for Process Innovation

Idea

Started two years ago, Graphene Composites (GC) combines graphene (the strongest material), aerogel (the lightest) and other advanced materials into composites for the armour, aerospace and renewable energy sectors.

Our graphene/aerogel composite armour is in its first early-stage customer trials. Our patents pending include the GC Shield, a light, flexible shield that protects against low energy gun and knife attacks - that fits in a schoolbag. GC Shields could be linked quickly together into a GC Shield Wall to protect groups of people - providing a revolutionary form of personal security.

We plan to launch the GC Shield this summer, with US schools as a key market; this funding round will help pay for the ballistic and stab certifications as well as initial production.

Our patents pending on graphene/aerogel composite technology also cover aerospace/vehicle composites, and the Lightning Harvester - sourcing renewable energy from static electricity in clouds.

Our development partner, the UK government-funded Centre for Process Innovation, showcased our armour at recent technology fairs, and our graphene/aerogel armour and Lightning Harvester technologies were featured in The Times.

We think our GC Shield, with its light, flexible, portable design, and the ability to quickly link into a Shield Wall to protect groups against gun/knife attacks, will be our key product.
