American Graphite Technologies logoAmerican Graphite Technologies (AGT) is a mineral exploration and technology development company. AGT has 100% ownership of 100 mineral claims in Quebec, Canada (close by to Focus Graphite's proven graphite resource). AGT is also involved with graphene related research.

In March 2013 AGT and Cheap Tubes announced that have successfully produced graphene paper test samples, but the companies are no longer collaborating. In September 2013 AGT launched a project with Ukraine's Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology to develop graphene-based working material for 3D printing.

The latest American Graphite Technologies news:

Cheap Tubes' hybrid bucky/graphene paper received favorable test results

American Graphite Technologies logoAmerican Graphite Technologies (AGT) announced that Cheap Tubes received independent test results for its hybrid bucky/graphene paper formulations and advanced coating technology, and these results confirmed that the materials are conductive, stable and processable on an industrial scale.



Cheap Tubes produced several pre-production quality, highly conductive, flexible and mechanically stable self-supporting membrane samples (made form CNTs and GNPs), refined from mined graphite and other nano components. Cheap Tubes' hybrid paper has a surface area of 116m2/g at 100um thickness, and the company says that it could potentially produce it in sizes up to 36" wide, at speeds up to 50-100 feet of membrane per minute.

American Graphite updates on financials and graphene 3D printing research

American Graphite Technologies logoAmerican Graphite Technologies (AGT) announced several new updates regarding their financial status and graphene projects. First of all, the company completed a financing round, totaling $145,000 (out of which $95,000 were already announced last week). AGT is currently negotiating another round of equity financing.

Back in April 2013, AGT announced it is planning to collaborate with Ukraine's Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology ("KIPT") on graphene-based working materials for 3D printing. AGT now informs us that they expect to start the project shortly as they hope to finalize  regulatory approvals soon.

American Graphite seeks to raise money to fund its current projects

American Graphite Technologies logoAmerican Graphite Technologies (AGT), a mineral exploration company that is also involved with graphene technologies (partnering with Cheap Tubes on graphene paper) is seeking to raise more money to fund its current projects. 

AGT entered into an agency agreement with Carter Terry & Company - to act as a financial advisor investment bank and help them with raising the required capital. AGT is trading in the NASDAQ (OTCBB: AGIN). AGT just announced it raised $95,000 from two investors that were not introduced by CT&C.

Cheap Tubes reports that they achieved milliohm resistivity for graphene paper samples

Cheap Tubes updates us on their graphene paper R&D. They have produced five samples and sent them to an independent laboratory for resistivity measurements. Cheap Tubes reports that they have achieved milliohm resistivity for graphene paper. Cheap Tubes plans to continue their R&D for both resistivity and scalability (on small scale and large scale samples). 

Cheap Tubes recently bought second hand equipment that will be used in their graphene paper R&D. The company bought this used equipment at an auction (it was previously used by now-bankrupt solar panel maker Konarka) and will install it in its new Rockingham, Vermont facility. Cheap Tubes is partnering with American Graphite Technologies, which supplies them with graphite materials. AGT is a publicly traded mineral exploration and technology development company.
