About Graphene Composite Materials LLC

Graphene Composite Materials LLC (GCM) is a company that was formed to commercialize a graphene composite class of materials, based on in-situ exfoliation technology patented by Rutgers University. This process has the ability to covalently bond exceptionally high loadings of graphene to a wide myriad of polymers, resulting in superior mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties than all known other methods to formulate graphene polymer composites.  The GCM composites are cost-effective, lighter weight, stronger, and easier to process than other lightweight materials, (i.e., injection moldable, extrudable, etc.) including high-strength steel, magnesium, aluminum, and thermoset polymer composites, while still meeting all regulatory standards on safety, emissions, and performance, and utilizing lower energy to produce an end product. This Rutgers Graphene Exfoliation Technology has been in development for 11+ years. GCM has recently secured the capital to become the worldwide exclusive licensee for this technology, GCM has also committed to purchase the necessary machinery to support an aggressive 24/7 growth program that will increase present day capacity from 100 LBS/Hour to 2,000 LBS/ Hour within one-year, and to > 10,000 LBS/Hour within 24 months.

Dr. Thomas Nosker

Dr. Nosker’s research interests were initially focused on developing plastics recycling and related technologies, based on modifications made to traditional equipment to develop useful products with new compositions. More recently, he has focused on virgin engineering plastics and composites, developing new and advanced materials with new compositions, including in-situ graphite to graphene production. The Graphene composite technology is licensed, and being scaled from the laboratory to production for industry and military needs. Dr. Nosker has been honored as one of only 20 Rutgers Revolutionaries, as part of Rutgers’ 250th anniversary. This is a list of “Rutgers people, and innovations that have changed lives around the world.”
