Applied Graphene Materials logoThe UK-based Applied Graphene Materials brought in independent coatings experts to conduct performance testing on graphene- reinforced polyurethane coatings and reported positive preliminary findings. 

While the test program is still ongoing, the initial results demonstrate that low loading levels of AGM's graphene nanoplatelets substantially enhance the scratch resistance and ultimate tensile strength of a polyurethane clearcoat, with minimal impact on transparency or colour.Polyurethane coatings are used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, aircraft and general industrial coatings, potentially opening up a number of new applications for AGM's graphene.
