WHO WE ARE
NanoXplore is a graphene company, a manufacturer and supplier of high volume graphene powder for use in industrial markets.
Our team brings together a deep understanding of carbon chemistry – from graphite to graphene –
along with the industrial experience required to improve the performance of our customers’ products.
THE STORY BEHINd INNOVATION
Established in 2011, NanoXplore has its headquarters and graphene production facility in Montreal, Quebec and its plastic production facility in Delson, Quebec in Montreal’s South Shore region. In 2013, we filed our first graphene production patent and began to scale from lab to full scale production.
NanoXplore provides customers with a range of graphene-based solutions under the heXo-G brand, including graphene powder, graphene-plastic masterbatch pellets, and graphene enhanced polymers.
We have two affiliated companies – NanoXplore GmbH located Mainz, Germany and Two Carbon Inc., located in Silicon Valley. NanoXplore GmbH is a business development office from which NanoXplore supports European innovators in the plastic, rubber, automotive, and many other industries. Two Carbon is focused on development of graphene based solutions for the sports and outer wear industries.
