Applied Graphene Materials logoApplied Graphene Materials (previously Durham Graphene Science) was established in 2010 as a spin-off from Durham University to develop a new graphene synthesis method and produce graphene materials. AGM's technology is a unique patented scalable 'bottom-up' CVD approach to produce graphene. AGM is a public company that lists in the UK's AIM stock exchange (AIM:AGM).

AGM mainly targets graphene composites, coatings, lubricants, thermal management solutions and energy storage devices. In October 2016 AGM announced its first commercial customer, UK's Century Composites, that will use graphene in a new range of fishing rods. In 2018 the company launched two new product series and a growing pipeline.

The latest AGM graphene news:

AGM reaches tech progress in the coatings field and announces new liquid coating roofing system

Applied Graphene Materials logoApplied Graphene Materials recently announced it has achieved significant technological progress (patent pending) on the deployment of graphene into water-based coatings to enhance their barrier properties. This water-based breakthrough is based on AGM's platform Genable technology, a range of master dispersions that are designed to facilitate the easy incorporation of graphene into coating formulations and existing processes.

Applied Graphene Materials also announced that UK-based Alltimes Coatings, a leading specialist in the supply and application of protective coatings for buildings, is launching its new Advantage Graphene liquid coating roofing system, with significantly enhanced anti-corrosion performance delivered by the incorporation of AGM's graphene.

James Briggs to launch graphene-enhanced hycote range using AGM’s materials

James Briggs has announced the successful completion of its graphene products' first production batch, which is seen as a significant milestone on the path to commercial realization. James Briggs has been working with Applied Graphene Materials on the development of graphene-based anti-corrosive coatings.



Extensive testing has demonstrated repeated and outstanding improvements in anti-corrosion performance for their automotive aerosol primer. JBL plans to launch the new range of graphene enhanced anti-corrosion aerosols under their brand Hycote .

James Briggs set to launch graphene-enhanced paint primer following collaboration with Applied Graphene Materials

Applied Graphene Materials has a longstanding collaboration with James Briggs, one of Europe’s largest consumer chemicals companies, to develop graphene-based anti-corrosive coatings. Now, an announcement has come out regarding the fruit of this collaboration - a range of graphene-enhanced anti-corrosive vehicle paint primer is set to launch in the next few months.

James Briggs (JBL) has reportedly prepared its first commercial batch in preparation for full product launch. "JBL has successfully completed its first production batch which is a significant milestone for commercial realization".

ANS launches a graphene-fortified polymer-bonded coating

Sweden-based Applied Nano Surfaces (ANS) launched a new product, Tricolit GO, one of the first graphene-enhanced low-friction coatings on the market today. Tricolit is available now from ANS, in easy-to-apply spray cans or in bulk. The product can be used to reduce friction and wear. ANS claims that the use of graphene allows a tenfold increase in the coating’s mechanical strength and abrasion-resistance.

We have talked to ANS CTO, Boris Zhmud, and he revealed that ANS uses graphene dispersions from UK-based Applied Graphene Materials. Tricolit GO is still considered an "experimental" product. The development was financed by Sweden's SIO-Grafen.
