Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) CEO Dr Adrian Potts joins DirectorsTalk to discuss its break-through Anti-corrosion graphene technology, what this means for the company now and whats next for AGM.
3,000-hour trials of AGM’s proprietary Genable® dispersions have delivered a more than fivefold improvement in rust protection enabling significant opportunities in its industrial coatings target market. The development has resulted in AGM being nominated as a finalist for the 2019 Corrosion Industry Innovation Award as the successful technology continues to gain traction and industry recognition.
Applied Graphene Materials works in partnership with its customers using its knowledge and expertise to provide custom graphene dispersions and formats to deliver enhancements and benefits for a wide range of applications. The Group’s strategy is to target commercial application in three core markets: coatings, composites and polymers and functional fluids.
The Group has developed proprietary bottom-up processes which are capable of producing high-volume graphene nanoplatelets using a continuous process. The manufacturing processes are based on sustainable, readily available raw materials and therefore do not rely on the supply of graphite, unlike a number of other graphene production techniques. Applied Graphene Materials owns the intellectual property and know-how behind these processes.
Applied Graphene Materials was founded in 2010 with its operations and processes based on technology that Professor Karl Coleman initially developed at Durham University. The Group was admitted to AIM in November 2013.
