The world's first ISO (International Organisation for Standardization) graphene standard has been published. The standard will provide consistency across the emerging world-wide graphene industry and accelerate the 2D material's commercial exploitation.
The new international standard, led by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), defines the terminology used to describe the many different forms of graphene and related 2D materials, supporting companies in the testing and validation of the 'wonder material'. The standard can be accessed online free of charge. Graphenea is proud that our CVD graphene obeys the definition put forward by the new standard for “graphene”, “monolayer graphene”, and “single-layer graphene”, and that graphene oxide is also defined in the ISO standard..
Graphenea is working closely with NPL on this project as well as other graphene standardization projects.
