The coating industry, like many other industries, has experienced considerable growth and evolution over the years. The advent of new technologies, techniques, materials and skills have vastly expanded the range of applications for various types of paints and coatings, allowing them to adapt to the rapidly changing needs of consumers.
One such material that has revolutionised the way we formulate coatings is graphene. Since its introduction in 2004, this material has garnered significant attention among many professionals, particularly those in the field of materials science.The fascination with this relatively new material stems from its unique combination of extraordinary physical, mechanical, electrical and optical properties. Scientists in the coating industry have since found ways to utilise graphene as an additive to improve the performance of various coating technologies. This material has become especially crucial in modern high performance and high demand industries, where coatings are required to consistently deliver superior performance in challenging and aggressive environments.
Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) works in partnership with its customers, using its knowledge and expertise to provide bespoke graphene dispersions and formats to deliver enhancements and benefits for a wide range of applications. The Group’s strategy is to target commercial applications in three core markets: coatings, composites and functional materials.
