AGM customer launches its second graphene-enhanced car polishing wax product
Applied Graphene Materials, the producer of speciality graphene nanoplatelet dispersions, is delighted to announce that its customer, Halo Autocare Limited, a leading innovator in car care products, has launched Graphene Alloy Wheel Wax as part of its EZ Car Care range of products. This is the second graphene-enhanced wax polish product launched by Halo Autocare as part of its Graphene Innovation Programme, which uses AGM's Genable® graphene dispersion technology.
The microcrystalline wax-based polish is the result of the continued partnership and a rigorous testing programme delivered by Halo Autocare. This has produced a new product that delivers extended performance benefits, including improved thermal and chemical resistance to enhance coating durability further for demanding wheel and exhaust applications. The temperature resistance made possible through the new graphene nanoplatelet formulation helps with durability when alloy wheels heat up from consistent brake use. Combining these attributes with excellent barrier performance means that water spotting is also less likely to occur.
Graphene Alloy Wheel Wax, which is enhanced with AGM's industry leading Genable® graphene dispersion technology, is available online at https://www.ezcarcare.co.uk/ and represents a further milestone for both companies in bringing graphene nanoplatelet-based products to the wider market.
"It is a great pleasure to see yet another product enhanced with AGM's graphene dispersions coming to market, thanks to our ongoing customer collaboration and AGM's easily applicable materials that can deliver transformational performance. Our graphene products have demonstrated exceptional performance in an increasingly broad range of applications and our focus on delivering graphene nanoplatelets in a format that makes them easy to adopt in practical applications is supporting continued product momentum.
Our strategy at this stage in our growth cycle has been to demonstrate the practical utility of graphene-based dispersions at innovative businesses that see the value of new technology opportunities. Halo fits this category well, as natural innovators in their field, with a focus on the commercialization of differentiated products. The development of our relationship with Halo Autocare is exciting and I look forward to seeing the commercial results of their current and future cutting-edge product launches."
"Halo Autocare and our sister company Innovation Chem have been working to incorporate Graphene technology into our product ranges via our brand EZ Car Care. We are extremely proud to announce that we have successfully dispersed AGM's ground breaking Genable® graphene dispersion into wax-based systems, a quick detailing spray and a cream sealant.
We released our Graphene carnauba wax in
I hope that this is just the beginning for Graphene technology in the automotive sector and we will continue to push innovation within our field."

Notes to Editors:
Applied Graphene Materials - For the last decade, AGM has been at the forefront of harnessing the possibilities of graphene. Founded originally by Professor Karl Coleman, the Group has grown from an academic idea from Durham University to a world leader in the development and application of graphene nanoplatelet dispersions for customers in the coatings, composites and functional materials sectors.
The Group utilises its proprietary bottom-up manufacturing process to produce high purity graphene nanoplatelets. Their expertise in dispersion chemistry enables AGM to create optimised, stable and easy to handle dispersions that customers use in real-world industrial products. AGM's unique approach enables industries to fully realise the potential of graphene in a simple, safe and easy to formulate way.
