Graphene 3D Lab, Inc was spun-off Graphene Labs in November 2013 to focus on development of high-performance graphene-enhanced materials for 3D printing.
Graphene 3D Lab is a public company, trading in the Canadian stock exchange (TSX:GGG, OTC: GPHBF) following a reverse-merger with Matnic Resources in August 2014. Lomiko Metals is a stakeholder in the company. In 2015 Graphene 3D Labs acquired its former parent company Graphene Labs.
In September 2014, we posted an interview with the company's founder and COO, Dr. Elena Polyakova.
The latest Graphene 3D Lab news:
Graphene 3D Lab has announced the launch of a new graphene-enhanced 3D printing filament - the Graphene-HIPS. It is said to be a distinctly engineered and innovative semi-flexible FDM 3D Printing material reinforced with graphene and designed for high performance 3D printing.
This FDM material reportedly exhibits excellent interlayer adhesion, toughness and superb impact resistance. These properties provide an excellent mechanical and structural performance for 3D printed objects made from this material. It is well suited for printing precise functional components for engineering applications. Graphene-HIPS is both temperature and weather resistant, which makes it an ideal material for outdoor projects.
Graphene 3D Lab and AzTrong have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which outlines the terms of the agreement to be executed in the near future. This collaboration will aim to achieve cost effective production of performance-improving graphene-based products with focus on energy storage, construction, automotive and defense sectors.
Subject to the final agreement, Graphene 3D Lab will continue to develop formulations for graphene-related products while conducting tests and quality control measurements. G3L will also contribute its extensive knowledge in marketing for the graphene related products, while AzT will perform the large-scale manufacturing of the products. The products will be distributed by both companies including the e-commerce web stores, Graphene Supermarket, BlackMagic3D and G6-Epoxy, operated by Graphene 3D.
Back in December 2015, Graphene 3D Lab announced signing a research, development and royalty agreement with a Fortune 500 manufacturer (that has been included in the Fortune 500 list for over 15 years). Now, the Company declared the conclusion of this project, largely due to the fact that the Partner’s development objectives were adjusted to focus on areas that wouldn’t benefit from the expertise of the Company.
The conclusion of this agreement was decided despite the fact that Graphene 3D executed and completed all the deliverables specified in the Agreement, and as per the Agreement, the Partner will compensate Graphene 3D for all direct & indirect research & development costs incurred by the Company relating to the project.
Graphene 3D Lab, a leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of proprietary composites and coatings based on graphene and other advanced materials, has announced an addition to its G6-Epoxy line of adhesives. This new product, G6E-GSTMepoxy, is a highly electrically conductive adhesive based on the combination of graphene and silver additives. It reportedly has a volume resistivity as low as 0.0001 Ω·cm and can be cured at room temperature or more rapidly at elevated temperatures. G6E-GSTM bonds well to a wide variety of substrates including metals, composites, ceramics, and glass.
The graphene filler is said to enhance the electrical conductivity of the epoxy and prevent the propagation of cracks, improving the material’s durability and fatigue resistance. This is especially important when bonding dissimilar materials subjected to rapid temperature variations. This feature improves impact resistance of the bond and also helps mitigate potential damage caused by vibration.
Graphene 3D Lab reported its financial results for Q1 2016, the quarter that ended on August 2016. Revenues in the quarter were $380,000 CAD (down from $540,000 CAD in the previous quarter but up from $4,000 in Q1 2015). The company posted a net loss of $150,000 CAD.
G3L recently announced that it has developed an innovative graphene composite material that was given the trade name "G6-Impact" and a new 3D filament developed from the G6-Impact material.
