AGM Launches a New Range of Eco-friendly Graphene Dispersions

Date: 31/08/2021

AGM continues its efforts towards eco-friendliness with new graphene dispersions that improve the sustainability of products.

The manufacturer of specialty graphene nanoplatelet dispersions Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) has launched a new range of eco-friendly graphene nanoplatelet dispersions that will empower paints, coatings and composite materials producers to improve the sustainability of their product formulations without compromises on performances.

As material suppliers are investing on biobased innovations to comply with customers’ requests and health and safety legislations, all the major players within the coating industry are offering eco-friendly solutions with low-VOC emissions, and the reduction or replacement of traditional solvents is now a high priority.

The new Genable® 1700 series of eco-friendly graphene nanoplatelet dispersions deliver significant performance uplifts such as chemical resistance, barrier and anticorrosion properties. All the products are integrated with a selection of certified, fully biobased solvents and resins, including Cyrene™ (dihydrolevoglucosenone), an award-winning bio-renewable solvent, and renewable resins Entropy Resin One and Entropy Resin CCR, a solvent-free liquid epoxy resin and a solvent-free hydroxy functional polyester.

The Genable 1700 graphene nanoplatelet dispersions reflects AGM’s efforts to align with the UN Sustainability Development Goals, that is an integral framework of the environmental work of the global sectors in which AGM plays a leading role.

“I am proud that AGM is taking a leading role in delivering graphene in sustainable formats that will help our customers reduce the environmental impact of their products. Today, we are able to help paints, coatings and composite materials formulators achieve their sustainability goals through the supply of a new eco-friendly range of graphene dispersions,” stated Adrian Potts, Chief Executive Officer of AGM. “Based on AGM’s already proven graphene nanoplatelet technology, these new biobased graphene products offer the industry a more responsible means of benefitting from the significant performance uplifts arising from the use of graphene nanoplatelets, such as chemical resistance, barrier and anticorrosion properties. AGM is committed to being part of a sustainable supply chain. We believe that through our constant product innovation we can empower our customers to not only set new product performance standards, but new sustainability standards for their industries.”

The Genable 1700 series product range is now available for sampling evaluation by customers for use in a wide range of liquid coatings and composite materials formulating applications.
