TORONTO — Gratomic Inc., an advanced materials company, is claiming the use of graphene — honeycomb lattice of single layer carbon atoms — in tire tread compounds could improve both tire life and rolling resistance, based on new research.

Gratomic claims, for example, that tires built with graphene showed an increase in tire life by up to 30% while also lowering rolling resistance by a similar percentage.
