On this episode Alex Corrêa, CEO of Gerdau Graphene joins me to discuss some of the exciting work they are doing.
Gerdau Graphene, is a company that is working to transform graphene into solutions that will revolutionize industries such as coatings, concrete, elastomers, polymers, and lubricants just to name a few.
Graphene is an ultra-strong, lightweight, flexible, and superconductive two-dimensional nanomaterial formed by carbon atoms in a hexagonal structure.
It is the perfect combination of strength, lightness, flexibility, and transparency, and is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity.
With annual revenues exceeding $20 billion, Gerdau is the largest producer of steel in the Americas and employs more than 30,000.
Alexandre Corrêa joined Gerdau in 2020 with the mission of scaling the company’s first advanced material spinoff, Gerdau Graphene, where they are focused on graphene application development.
