Graphene was first isolated in 2004 by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov at The University of Manchester. They used sticky tape to remove single layers from the surface of graphite and deposit them onto a silicon wafer. The isolation of graphene was a breakthrough and Geim and Novoselov ultimately won the 2010 Nobel Prize for Physics. Pristine Graphene is a form of carbon and it’s no surprise it’s considered to be a wonder material. Made of planar sheets which are an atom thick and arranged in a honeycomb-shaped lattice, it’s completely transparent and the thinnest and lightest materials known to science. It’s the best possible conductor of electricity, has outstanding thermal conductivity and is 100 times stronger than steel.
This perfect combination of properties makes it ideal for a range of applications, however, the commercial value of graphene lies in the ability to robustly transfer these outstanding intrinsic properties into other materials, thus creating higher value materials and products which possess specifically enhanced characteristics
AGM utilises differentiated application technology to create both standardised and end-user specific customised dispersion for a wide range of applications.
AGMs graphene nanoplatelet dispersions enhance the performance of numerous industrial systems, enable customers to create value adding, innovative new products in market sectors including paints and coatings, batteries and energy storage, polymer composites and lubricants, waxes and polishes.
