Sentury and Huagao cooperate on first graphene tyre
On 3 August 2016 Sentury Tire and Huagao Graphene Technology Corporation hosted a ceremony marking the two firm’s cooperation on their first (and possibly the first) graphene high performance car tyre.
Qingdao information technology department vice director Wang Jian, deputy mayor of Qingdao Sun Mingming, China grapheme industry alliance secretary Li Yichun, chairman of Sentury Qin Long and Sentury president Lanny represented Sentury by attending the signing ceremony.
Sentury also revealed that the company produced its first trial production graphene tyre in October 2016, the 245/45 R18 LS588@RSC electrostatic tyre.
Sound like a one off? Apparently not. According the production plan, the output will amount 5 million units in the first five years and output will increase to 10 million in the second five years. To quote the companies themselves: “Sentury and Huagao will lead the industrial revolution in graphene-tyre field”.
