Please can you introduce us to Applied Graphene Materials (AGM)?
AGM was established in 2010 by Professor Karl Coleman as a spin-out from the chemistry department of Durham University. As you would probably expect from its name, it manufactures graphene and supports its application in innovative new materials in many industries. Graphene is strong but lightweight, provides good barrier protection and has thermal and electrical connectivity properties too, so scientists are very excited about the incredible potential it has to improve infinite numbers of products.
What are your customers interested in using graphene for?
One key area is adding graphene into coatings, such as industrial paints. For example, it can act as a better barrier for structures like ships that are exposed to high salinity and high humidity environments, making it harder for water to penetrate, resisting corrosion and reducing the frequency of ships coming back into dry dock for repainting.
Applied Graphene Materials plc (LON:AGM) produces and sells graphene products primarily in the United Kingdom. It offers graphene nanoplatelets; and graphene powder in a range of polymer matrices, including thermoset and thermoplastic, as well as adhesives, elastomers, oils, and aqueous and non-aqueous solutions.
