Graphene, a two-dimensional material composed of a single layer of carbon atoms, has been widely studied due to its exceptional mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties. Among its properties, graphene has high strength, high stiffness, and high thermal conductivity, which make it a potential reinforcement material for fabrics and clothing.

At Graphene-X we have been engineering trailblazing clothing by innovating with graphene integrated fabrics and avant-garde design since 2019. Today, we dive onto the properties and applications of this amazing material in fabrics.


Mechanical Properties:

Graphene has a tensile strength of approximately 130 GigaPascals, which is over 100 times stronger than steel. When added to fabrics, graphene can improve the material's strength and stiffness, making the fabrics more durable and resistant to tearing. Additionally, graphene's high stiffness can improve the shape retention of clothing, preventing sagging or stretching.

Thermal Properties:

Graphene has an exceptional thermal conductivity of up to 5,000 watts per meter per kelvin. This property can be used to improve the thermal properties of fabrics and clothing, making them more effective at regulating body temperature. For example, clothing made with graphene-reinforced fabrics can keep the wearer warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather, making them more comfortable to wear.




Electrical Properties:

Graphene has excellent electrical properties, including high electrical conductivity and high transparency. These properties can be used to create clothing with built-in electronic devices, such as heating elements, sensors, and displays. This could enable the development of smart clothing that can monitor the wearer's health, provide feedback on their movements, or even charge their electronic devices.


Bacteriostatic Properties:

Graphene has also been found to have bacteriostatic properties, which means it can inhibit the growth of bacteria (yes, this means products don’t smell after heavy use).


This property is due to the unique surface chemistry of graphene, which can disrupt the cell membrane of bacteria, preventing them from growing and reproducing. This makes it a promising material for use in fabrics and clothing that are in contact with the skin, such as sportswear, undergarments, and medical textiles.

Research has shown that graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) have a strong bacteriostatic effect against a wide range of bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The graphene oxide can act as a barrier to prevent bacteria from adhering to the fabric, and the reduced graphene oxide can directly interact with the bacteria, disrupting their metabolism and killing them.


It is also worth noting that Graphene has also shown to have antiviral properties, as well as anti-fungal properties, which makes it a promising material for medical textiles and personal protective equipment.

Hydrophobic Properties:

Graphene is hydrophobic, meaning it repels water. This property is due to the chemical structure of graphene, which is composed of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. The carbon atoms in the lattice are strongly bonded to one another, creating a surface that is very difficult for water molecules to adhere to.


This hydrophobic property of graphene can be used to create waterproof clothing. Researchers have demonstrated that by incorporating graphene or graphene-based materials into fabrics, the fabrics can become highly water-repellent. This can be done by coating the fabrics with a thin layer of graphene or by adding graphene nanoparticles to the fibers during the textile manufacturing process.


Graphene oxide (GO) is a hydrophilic form of graphene, it can also be used to create water-repellent fabrics. The graphene oxide can be used to create a thin coating that covers the fibers, preventing water from penetrating the fabric. Additionally, the graphene oxide can also be used to create fabrics that are breathable and can allow water vapor to pass through while blocking liquid water.




Graphene's exceptional properties make it a potential reinforcement material for fabrics and clothing. Its high strength, high stiffness, and high thermal conductivity can improve the mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of fabrics and clothing.

At Graphene-X we are fully committed to keep innovating and changing the game in this space. 2023 is going to be a heck of a year.

I’m JUNICHI MIYOSHI, CEO of ジェイスタート.
We are selling very attractive products from abroad which has not gained recognition in Japanese market yet, in cooperation with the manufacturers of them.

Now, we found your products LIMITLESS Backpack has launched on Kickstarter to gain support and funding for mass production. And we have taken very strong interested in your product.

I regard that your LIMITLESS Backpack is impressively excellent product which is unlike anything someone has ever seen before!

Would you like to collaborate with us if you are interested in expanding your products into Japanese market?

Our company has many kinds of sales channels in Japan such as major retail chain stores, retails stores, EC stores. Also, we have many experiences to exhibit many kinds of products from abroad on big gift shows and exhibitions in Japan. Therefore, we can support you to expand your products into Japanese market effectively.

As you know, most of Japanese consumers require quite high level of services such as quality of the products, after-sales services, and others.
We can understand their demands because the members of our company are Japanese.
Therefore, you can make your mind ease and count on us to do after-sales services to Japanese customers.

Of course, I contact you this time as a business. But I, myself, am interested in your LIMITLESS Backpack so much.

I strongly hope to introduce your LIMITLESS Backpack in Japanese market.

Please let us support your business expansion into Japanese market!

We would greatly appreciate if you can give our proposal a good review.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you.
