First Graphene has announces the release of its PureGRAP graphene products. Over the last five months FGR’s management has worked with various universities and on its own production processes to ensure it could consistently produce a suitable range of products.
The initial product includes PureGRAPH graphene products with lateral sizes of 20µm, 10µm and 5µm. Further size options are planned to be added later. FGR says that due to its unique process it is able to produce graphene with larger lateral sheet sizes if a customer should have a particular application.
PureGRAPH 20 With a lateral size of 20µm is said to be ideal where fire retardancy barrier, thermal conductivity and reinforcing properties are required. Applications include fire retardant paints, concretes and geotextiles. PureGRAPH 10 With a lateral size of 10µm is readily dispersed into polymer resins and rubbers providing excellent reinforcing properties. Applications include reinforcing of rubbers and carbon fibre and glass fibre filled composites. PureGRAPH 5 With a lateral size of 5µm is particularly useful for formulations in low viscosity systems such as inks where solution stability and final film appearance is important. Applications include electrically conductive inks and coatings.
Evaluation of these products is reportedly well underway with university partners and commercial partners. Orders for several kilogram development quantities from commercial customers are already being supplied.
Managing Director, Craig McGuckin said “The launch of our PureGRAPH high quality graphene products along with a detailed product information sheet is a significant step forward in the commercialization of graphene. Our customers can now be confident of the quality of the graphene products they are purchasing and assured that their product development has a reliable raw material supply to build from. Our competitive research has revealed that no other manufacturers have been prepared to present the detail of product information shown by FGR.”
