Grafoid unveils GPURE graphene membrane for Li-ion batteries

Mar 15, 2017

Grafoid, the Canadian graphene R&D, investment and technology company, announced the development of its GPURE Graphene Polymer nano-porous membrane intended for next generation Li-Ion battery applications.

The GPURE graphene polymer membrane (GPM) was developed as a chemically inert, freestanding membrane using graphene composites to test ion selectivity using both monovalent and divalent ions. Ion selectivity is a key requirement for a semi permeable membrane in a Li-ion battery structure. By protecting the sensitive electrode materials from unwanted chemical species GPURE GPM diffuses only energy harvesting monovalent ions such as Li+, Na+ etc.

Grafoid develops GPURE Graphene-based membrane technologies for industrial markets

Feb 19, 2017

Grafoid has announced the development of the GPURE Membrane Platform, consisting initially of six next generation GPURE Graphene-Polymer membrane technologies intended for industrial markets.

GPURE Graphene-Polymer membranes include:

  • GPURE (A) - A high performing, free-standing membrane developed for water desalination applications
  • GPURE (B) - A stable, large area membrane developed for wastewater filtration suitable for very high temperature operating applications
  • GPURE (C) - A large area free-standing membrane developed for water filtration pre-treatment and may be suitable for use in gas separation applications and may be used as a lightweight component for automotive and sports equipment applications
  • GPURE (D) - A large area membrane that may be used for gas separation and sensing applications
  • GPURE (E) - A large area membrane intended for use in gas separation applications
  • GPURE (F) - May be applied as a graphene varnish for wood surfaces to protect against moisture, UV light and high temperatures

Grafoid unveils a cost-effective graphene coating called GrafeneX

Feb 01, 2017

Grafoid, a leading graphene R&D and investment company, announced its entry into the global industrial coatings market with the introduction of its patent pending GrafeneX graphene coatings technology. Grafoid describes the GrafeneX technologies as a cost-effective way of laying down graphene coatings on large surface areas.

GrafeneX is a novel technology that creates a platform for the deposition of graphene and chemically functionalized graphene coatings. This process provides Grafoid with the capability to apply its diverse graphene-based coatings to many different types of material substrates with controllable levels of surface coverage, thickness etc. to meet precise end user requirements.

Grafoid enters agreement to sell its share in Braille Batteries

Oct 19, 2016

Mincom Capital has announced it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent with Grafoid to acquire Grafoid's 75% interest in Braille Holdings which owns Braille Battery. The proposed purchase price is $2 million USD, of which $1 million USD will be paid in cash and $1 million USD will be paid in shares issued to Grafoid from the treasury of Mincom. To fund this acquisition, Mincom plans to raise around $3 million USD.

Grafoid stated that "We see future market opportunities for high performing next generation batteries in the bus and truck manufacturing sectors and we see trends emerging in marine, aviation and medical equipment and other industrial sectors that might benefit from graphene-based energy solutions".

A green energy business alliance formed between Grafoid, Focus Graphite, Stria Lithium and Braille Battery

May 31, 2016

Grafoid logoGrafoid has announced the formalization of a strategic green energy business alliance branded as the 2GL Platform. The collaborative agreement pioneers the unification of the development of materials, technologies and processes for next generation energy applications under a shared vision and direction.

This business alliance involves collaboration between Grafoid, Focus Graphite, Stria Lithium (a junior mining exploration company with an expanding technology focus in lithium metal and foil) and Braille Battery (a leading manufacturer and seller of ultra-lightweight high performance AGM and lithium-ion batteries).
