Cheap TubesÂ purchased 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 plans to retrofit the equipment for the manufacture of graphene paper, and hopes to begin testing in about 3 months. Cheap Tubes is partnering with American Graphite Technologies, which will supply them with graphite materials. AGT is a publicly traded mineral exploration and technology development company.
