AGM to present at international coatings conferences

 

Applied Graphene Materials, the specialty producer of graphene materials, announces that the Company will present to the global paints and coatings industry at five international conferences this spring.

 

Over the last 12 months, the Company has seen several  customer coatings containing AGM's graphene dispersion technology reach the consumer market, including Halfords' graphene-enhanced primer and James Briggs' Hycote graphene anti-corrosion primer. The Company continues in its commitment to developing customer engagement in the coatings sector by presenting the performance data supporting the application of its proprietary market-leading graphene enhanced coatings technology.

 

AGM has developed a robust high-volume synthesis production technology for graphene nanoplatelets (A-GNPs). A-GNPs possess unique characteristics that are then tailored into a range of commercial production ready dispersions (Genable® range), which deliver outstanding enhancements to anti-corrosion and general barrier performance, while providing opportunities to further optimise other coating characteristics.

 

AGM will take part in five leading international industry events, presenting selected technology papers at the following:

 

·    Corrosion 2020, based in Houston, Texas (15-19 March 2020)

·    The American Coatings Show, based in Indianapolis (30 March - 02 April 2020)

·    Eurocoat, based in Paris (31 March - 02 April 2020)

·    Paint Expo, based in Karlsruhe, Germany (21-24 April 2020)

·    Surfex, based in Coventry (02-03 June 2020)

Notes to Editors

Applied Graphene Materials 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.

The Group has developed proprietary bottom-up processes which are capable of producing high purity graphene nanoplatelets using a continuous process. The manufacturing process is based on sustainable, readily available raw materials and therefore does 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 this process.

Applied Graphene Materials was founded by Professor Karl Coleman in 2010 with its operations and processes based on technology that he initially developed at Durham University.  The Group was admitted to AIM in November 2013, raising £11 million, and is based at the Wilton Site on Teesside. In January 2016 the Group raised £8.5m to support its ongoing activities and in October 2017 the Group raised a further £9.8m.
