Aside from this, graphene is also known for its strength, flexibility, and sufficient fire retardancy. Thus, increased amounts of graphene would improve both the chemical and mechanical properties of rubbers. It would provide higher strength and flexibility, thus increasing its durability. Also, rubber being flame retardant is such a plus.
These improvements would be useful in the oil-sealing materials, shape memory elastomers, condoms, rubber nanocomposites, nitrile gloves with improved mechanical properties, housing materials, and many more. Using graphene as an additive revolutionized lots of industry.
