Skeleton renames Black Magic curved graphene business
Skeleton Technologies is renaming its Black Magic graphene subsidiary to Skeleton Materials.
Black Magic is based in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Saxony-Anhalt and is responsible for material development and production of the patented curved graphene material at the heart of Skeleton’s ultracapacitor and fast charging battery cells . The operation is scaling up the production of curved graphene to meet the demand for the supercapacitors and SuperBattery.

“It’s an important milestone for us as we are expanding our manufacturing capacity in parallel, and our company’s visibility has dramatically increased. Unlike Tesla, Panasonic, or LG who use similar raw materials and compete in engineering, Skeleton has taken an alternative approach and has focused on vertical integration, producing our own material and using it in the cells and modules we manufacture. Renaming Black Magic into Skeleton Materials therefore perfectly illustrates that materials development is the backbone of our strategy,” said Dr. Linus Froböse, Skeleton’s COO and managing director of Skeleton Technologies
“Curved graphene allows our products to reach unprecedented levels of performance without relying on toxic or rare metals. Without this material, we wouldn’t be able to enable and accelerate electrification and decarbonization and meet the needs of the transportation, automotive, grid, and industry sectors,“ he said.
