The Sixth Element

The Sixth Element

The Sixth Element (Changzhou) Materials Technology, founded in 2011, is the leading manufacturer of graphene oxide, reduced graphene oxide, graphene and CVD graphene (called Graphene film) in China. With a current production capacity of 400 t/year The Sixth Element serves all relevant applications with special designed products. As of April 2020 the capacity will go up to 1000 t/a. The Sixth Element is one of the three founding members of the REACh Graphene Registration Consortium and has registered as substances graphene and graphene oxide with reduced graphene oxide to follow end of 2020.

The Attempt to Achieve Standardization within the Graphene Industry

The true description of graphene is that of a single atomic layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal array. However, the nanocarbon material landscape is much more complicated than this simple statement, with single-layer, few-layer, multi-layer, graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) and both graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) all to be considered as types of graphene.

The Graphene Industry Gathers As The Market Reaches Tipping Point

Graphene and other 2D materials have spent a long period in R&D since the discovery back in the early 21st century. However, through many positive signs from the industry, 2019 is set to become the year that the hype turns to commercial reality.

The Sixth Element

We caught up with Sixth Element in Nanjing China in Sept 2017. We understand that Sixth Element had sales of 18 tpa last year. Its main success area is in anti-corrosion coating. Addition of graphene enables a reduction in Zn loading. Here, a high BET is useful which favours their materials over small exfoliated ones. Their main partner here is Toppen Technology. They are not yet in the battery business. They concede that BYD is currently using exfoliated (liquid phase) graphene which are more pristine. They are however developing suspensions which BYD is testing but not confirmed yet. They also have a TIM material (thermal interface material) which is commercial. They claim selling the graphene 300 rmb per kg (we hear prices around 500 per Kg from customers) Note that Sixth Element is a public company therefore it has to constantly make announcements.

Future prospects of graphene applications

IDTechEx has invited a series of industrial players and leaders active in graphene commercialization to contribute their opinions about the state of the technology and markets. As part of the article series, we will today hear from Birla Carbon who writes about the progress of graphene in various industries.

Graphene's centre of gravity shifts to China?

Europeans won the Nobel Prize for their work on graphene but they are not necessarily winning on the commercial front. In fact, it is the Chinese who might overtake them.
