Graphene is the most impermeable material known to man and so the perfect ingredient for protecting metal against corrosion and moisture ingress. Applied Graphene Materials UK Ltd (AGM) is supplying its graphene for use in a new liquid coating to stop metal roofs from corroding.
It has been shown that low loadings of AGM’s graphene platelets (A-GNP10/A-GNP35(T)) in epoxy coating systems drastically improves corrosion performance, this is due to the impenetrable barrier created by the graphene. The barrier blocks almost 100% of corrosive elements such as water molecules, salt and other harmful chemicals.
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.
