The strongest material currently known to science is graphene. It is used in a diverse range of objects from condoms to contact lenses.
Now, the Graphene Company, have created the world’s thinnest, strongest and most conductive substance to be offered to the public, paint! Yes, they are offering a lime-based paint that is as good for the environment as it is thin (which is saying something).
It aims to make any structure more efficient. This lime-based paint has superconductivity, meaning it increases ‘thermal regulation’ of a structure. For instance in a home, the paint can reduce the need for heating and/or air-conditioning by slowing heat conduction through walls and out of buildings. Less heat, lower bills, planet-saving!
The eco-friendly paint is made from 98% pure lime, meaning it purifies surrounding air by absorbing carbon dioxide. The company thus asserts its sustainability (claiming it to be the most eco-friendly paint in the world). The product is already being used on hospital, school and hotel walls. Expect demand to increase greatly!
