Garmor, a new company spun-off from the University of Central Florida (UCF) a couple of months ago to commercialize a new low-cost environmentally-friendly graphene oxide production process, plan to start producing graphene oxide flakes next month (August 2013).
The Garmor facility will have the ability to produce 10 to 20 kg batches of graphene oxide flakes. The yearly capacity will be 100 metric tons. They will offer graphene dispersion in liquid, or dry powder. The company is focused on graphene as an additive for rubbers, plastics or metals - to enhance their strength while lowering the weight.
Garmor is partially funded with a $300,000 loan from the Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Public Research’s Seed Capital Accelerator Program.
