Graphenemex and World Direct Tech shine at materials science conference in the United Arab Emirates

The alliance between Graphenemex, represented by its CEO Eduardo Priego Mondragón, and World Direct Tech, headed by CEO Paulo Armas, was the center of attention at the International Congress on Frontiers in Materials Science and Engineering (FMSE), organized by the American University of Sharjah (AUS) in the United Arab Emirates on February 14 and 15, 2024. Graphenemex was the only Latin American company invited to this event, being a leader in the field of Nanotechnology.

During the event, Eduardo Priego Mondragón presented two lectures titled “Innovation in Construction: Graphene Oxide, the Differentiating Nano Additive for Concrete” and “Revolution in Coatings: Empowering the Construction Industry through the Use of Graphene Coatings.” Priego Mondragón presented an analysis of the multifunctional properties of graphene materials, highlighting their mechanical strength, impermeability, flexibility, thermal and electrical conductivity, and lightweight nature. These characteristics make graphene suitable for various applications, such as electronics, medicine, plastics, coatings, construction, and renewable energies.
