Graphene sheets are two-dimensional, one-atom-thick layers of sp2-bonded carbon atoms connected in a hexagonal, honey-comb-like pattern. In addition to potential applications in advanced batteries and transistors, solar cells, displays, sensors, and composites, there is much interest in the use of graphene by itself as a coating material or as an additive for improving the performance of various coating technologies. In particular, several approaches have been taken to develop graphene-based corrosion protection coatings. The superhydrophobicity of graphene has also been exploited. There are many possible applications for conductive graphene coatings.
Applied Graphene Materials, funded through listing on the UK’s AIM stock market, has already developed scalable production technology for a range of graphene nanoplatelets (A-GNPs), but uniquely through a continuous synthesis process. To support their focus on developing industry-ready graphene dispersions, AGM has collaborated with the UK’s Paint Research Association to test modified polyurethane and epoxy coatings.
Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) manufacture production ready graphene based Genable® dispersions, with product integration expertise to deliver multi-functional performance enhancements across a wide range of applications.
