Applied Graphene Materials (AGM), producer of graphene nanoplatelet dispersions, recently announced that it will be presenting a breakthrough technology that enables easy graphene dispersion in water-based epoxy coatings, while delivering improved corrosion protection, at the Corrosion 21 Conference & Expo on 28th April 2021.
AGM said that the technology represents a major milestone in the development of performance-enhancing graphene technologies for more sustainable coatings manufacturers. AGM has previously made strides in anticorrosion performance in solvent-based coatings through the use of its Genable graphene nanoplatelet dispersion technology. However, water-based coating development remains a key focus for industry formulators looking to improve the safety and environmental impacts of their products.
AGM’s new technology enables easy dispersion of graphene in water-based epoxy coatings, while delivering improved corrosion protection the research represents an important development in raising waterborne coating anti-corrosion performance in industry applications.
The two-week event, hosted by The Association for Materials Protection and Performance, will take place between 19- 30 April 2021, and brings together industry experts from around the world to showcase the latest developments and technology in corrosion control.
