Graphene raw materials supplier First Graphene and UK-based specialist materials manufacturer M&I Materials have agreed to collaborate to develop an extended range of graphene-enhanced products.
Both companies are partners at Manchester’s Graphene Engineering and Innovation Centre (GEIC), a facility dedicated to the commercialization of graphene. The GEIC has played a big part in enabling this collaboration and has benefited both parties in terms of the close working relationship at the same location and the extensive facilities and support available on site.
M&I Materials boasts a leading portfolio of brands supplying to global industrial and scientific markets. The company counts household names such as Siemens, Boeing, CERN and NASA among its client base who specify its range of engineered materials.
Paul Ladislaus, Chief Technology Officer for First Graphene Ltd., said, “M&I Materials are a very innovative supplier of formulated products to specialist markets around the world. As materials scientists, they understand the potential of graphene materials for their product range and we are pleased to be able to support their evaluation of the performance of our PureGRAPH products in their systems.”
James Baker, Chief Executive Officer of Graphene@Manchester said “This is exactly the type of development that the GEIC is designed to deliver, in terms of enabling two innovative local companies to collaborate together in the graphene space. In these uncertain times I am pleased that the GEIC can support collaborations like these, which I am sure will have a positive impact in our region and the wider United Kingdom.”
