Galvorn unlocks nanoscale properties for macroscale performance
Outperforming GHG-intense alternatives
We aim to accelerate the Carbon Age by creating the building blocks necessary for a cleaner economy. Galvorn is a revolution in materials performance, enabled by our proprietary fluid phase process.
Conductive and more
Galvorn is conductive at 10 MS/m today, but its true power is the combination of historically valued properties: it’s also more lightweight, more durable, stronger, soft and flameproof. Fewer trade offs mean you can reimagine the products you build.
10x stronger than steel
Weight for weight, Galvorn (at 3.0 GPa) is 10x stronger than some of the strongest forms of steel–and 30x stronger than stainless steel and other common structural steels. Yet for all its strength it’s less than ¼ the density and carbon-negative at scale.
Half the weight of aluminum
With a density of 1.5 g /cc compared to aluminum at 2.7 g/cc, the potential for Galvorn in lightweighting applications is boundless. But it’s not just lightweight, it’s also 30x stronger than aluminum, weight for weight. And did we mention carbon-negative at scale?
5-6x lighter than copper
Copper is prized for its conductivity, but it’s also notoriously dense, lacks strength and flex tolerance, and is prone to corrosion. Galvorn’s conductivity of 10 MS/m today, combined with its lightweightness (1.5 g/cc), super strength (3.0 GPa), durability (> 1M flex life cycles), corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility make it a powerful candidate for existing and new applications that require conductivity.
Galvorn is inherently non-toxic. As a carbon nanomaterial it can form a good electrical connection with electrolytic fluids, such as saline or other fluids in the body. Because the fibers are soft, flexible, and durable makes them useful as electrodes that can be implanted in the body. In many cases a metal electrode might be stiff enough to cause damage to surrounding tissue, or it might suffer from a low fatigue life and risk breaking apart in the body after a certain amount of time; flexible CNT electrodes can potentially avoid these drawbacks.
