Global Graphene Group (G3) is the holding company of Angstron Materials, Nanotek Instruments, and three other divisions. G3 develops, sells and licenses advanced graphene materials as well as graphene-enabled technologies for next-generation products such as phones, tires, paints, and electric vehicles.
G3’s work on graphene-enabled battery technologies has led to the launch the G3-Fireshield Technology that features graphene-protected cathode materials, a modified separator layer, and a non-flammable electrolyte that together result in a much safer Li-ion battery for consumers.
The latest Global Graphene Group (G3) news:
Angstron Materials has announced the establishment of a sister company called EnerG Nano, that is looking to invest around $20 million to open a production facility in Miamisburg. The company has picked a developer and a site at the Mound campus, but is still working to line up investors and incentives before making a commitment.
It seems that the plan is for Angstron to sell graphene to EnerG Nano, which would use it to make energy storage devices such as lithium-ion batteries. To boost production, Angstron is ramping up for a more than $1 million expansion that would more than double its space, according to an economic grant application. The investment would go toward purchasing a nearby 26,000-square-foot facility as well as renovations and equipment.
The U.S-based graphene materials producer and applications developer Angstron Materials announced securing $5 million in capital to increase manufacturing capacity for its single and few-layer graphene materials and bring key technologies to market.
The company began seeking Pre-Series A funding in late 2014. According to the company, the investment partner (only named as a "key player in advanced materials and consumer electronics") brings extensive business and industry expertise to the table, along with a portfolio of major customers and collaborators.
Angstron Materials announced that it has teamed with Stryke Industries to accelerate development and commercialization of graphene products for military and defense applications. The US-based business development firm provides a multi-tiered network of resources, designed to promote economies of scale and shorter lead times for bringing new products to market.
Stryke Industries specializes in identifying and implementing disruptive technologies that can help equip military personnel and provide problem-solving solutions for defense industries.
Ohio-based Angstron Materials has developed a group of cost-effective thermal foil products that can be customized for handheld devices and other products. The company says that its foil sheets have been qualified for use by a major mobile electronics company. Such thermal foils can be used for the technology beneath devices' screens that conducts heat away from internal electronic components and batteries to help maintain optimal performance.
Angstron’s thermal foils are available in a variety of grades. The company states that its foils are thinner than other products on the market and so give manufacturers greater design flexibility than competing methods. Angstron’s foil sheets also can be sourced with equivalent or greater thermal conductivity.
Angstron Materials began to offer masterbatches of graphene-enhanced polymers. Those materials offer superior mechanical, electrical and thermal properties - above the base polymer. Angstron can provide the materials in a pellet form or as a strand for use in FDM 3D Printing.
Angstron has a team of composite scientists and engineers that can use the in-house compounding equipment and then masterbatch material to order in a timely manner. Through their industrial partners, also rapidly scale-up nanocomposite compounding to meet industrial demand.
