Graphene Laboratories (owned by Graphene 3D Lab) is developing and marketing functional Graphene materials and devices. Graphene Labs operates an online store called Graphene Supermarket which offers online graphene related products and other advanced materials.
In February 2013 Graphene Labs signed a strategic alliance agreement with Lomiko Metals to co-develop a vertically integrated supply chain.

Graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs), unique materials produced from natural graphite, are finding their way into a wide variety of commercial products including nanocomposites, lubricants, additives to battery electrodes, functional textiles, as well as many other applications.
GNPs have quite a few outstanding properties that allow them to be employed in a broad spectrum of applications, including:
- Superb mechanical strength
- Excellent electrical conductivity
- Ability to vastly improve the tensile strength and fracture toughness of polymers
- Low percolation threshold
- Resistance to corrosion
Graphene 3D Lab has announced a third line of business, the Industrial Materials Division, to be devoted to development of high volume graphene-infused polymers for the automotive, robotics, drone, aerospace and military industries. This line will join the company's two main ones: graphene production and commercialization of 3D Printing technologies.
As a step in this direction, G3L has finalized installation and testing of a state of the art twin-screw extruder manufactured by Thermo Fisher. This specialized equipment allows the company to create advanced composite materials with exceptional accuracy in shorter working times. The extruder will help to incorporate graphene into materials well suited for industrial production of new or existing products that are lighter, stronger, and more flexible than their current commercial counterparts. The company will now be able to respond faster to the increased demand from manufacturers.
Graphene 3D Lab announced the initiation of a non-brokered private placement of up to 3,400,000 units to raise up to CND$850,000 in gross proceeds (around $619,000 USD). Each Unit will consist of one common share and one non-transferable share purchase warrant.
The company stated that proceeds of this financing will be used primarily for expansion of its business and for general working capital purposes.
Graphene 3D Lab has announced filing a provisional patent for a process of 3D printing an OLED light source that immediately functions when printed, with a graphene coated transparent conductor window. This unique structure is the product of an innovative multi-functional 3D Printer, which can make thin films as well as 3D structures.
The printer patent relates to a technology that should lead the industry in multiple deposition techniques, robotic manipulator, laser and UV curing capabilities. G3L considers the new IP a dramatic leap forward, offering the ability to 3D print with multiple functional materials at the same time, including the ability to 3D print a working light. This printer was reportedly designed to maximize the attributes of the functional materials that the company already developed, and plans to introduce in the future to the market.
