HMG Paints Partners to Develop &
Commercialize Graphene-based Coatings

HMG is combining its coatings experience with Graphene and product integration expertise of Applied Graphene Materials. The newly developed products will possess specifically enhanced characteristics. The products can be applied for a number of coatings applications.

Following an initial stage of controlled environment testing, which produced some extremely positive results, the two companies are now testing their product in a real world environment. Tests will focus on the application of Graphene based coatings in both the Commercial Vehicle and Construction Equipment markets.

Jonathan Falder, Head Technician of the HMG Graphene Project said:

We’re delighted with how our initial testing has gone and have now progressed to life trials in the environments they’d ultimately be used in.

We’ve found AGM’s Graphene dispersions to integrate well using conventional processes and seen some significant performance gains from our own testing of commercial products. We are moving onto full scale trials and commercial launch as we believe that these benefits can add real value to our customers.
