Graphenstone paint is the brainchild of Spanish chemical engineer León Jiménez, who developed the paint using artisanal mineral lime from Morón de la Frontera, which is produced using a carbon-neutral process. By adding graphene, a pure form of carbon in which the carbon atoms form a hexagonal lattice just one atom thick, Jiménez created a paint which is 200 times stronger that structural steel and 1000 times more conductive than copper, allowing it to capture radiated heat and transfer it through the paint to improve insulation. Graphene, discovered in 2004 by Nobel Prize winning scientists at Manchester University, is highly…
