Applied Graphene Materials (AGM)has announced the launch of its latest, ground-breaking, dispersion range - the Genable® 3000 series. Genable® 3000 series materials are graphene based active, non-metallic, anti-corrosion additives and have been proven to deliver industry leading performance.

  • The new series has been formulated to enable the full benefit of graphene materials to be accessed by coatings industry formulators seeking step change anti-corrosion performance, particularly under harsher environmental conditions
  • Incorporated into the formulation of an industry standard C3 epoxy primer system, and tested under representative cyclical salt spray testing (ASTM G-85-94 Prohesion), Genable® 3000 series materials have been shown to deliver a 5- fold extension in coating lifetime
  • The properties of the Genable® 3000 series make it an ideal tool-box additive for formulators seeking to significantly enhance coating performance in a range of environments

As an additive capable of offering metal free systems with extended durability it is anticipated that it should find applicability in harsh C4, possibly C5, type environments such as in high humidity industrial, marine and off-shore applications.

Attractive Commercial Benefits

Once optimized into formulations Genable® 3000 series additives will provide attractive commercial benefits to coating developers and end-users alike, enabling the further optimization of multi-coat systems and providing significant reductions in application, maintenance and repair costs.

Genable® 3000 series dispersions are active, non-metallic, anticorrosion additives available initially in epoxy resins but with a range of solvent and water based dispersions under near-term development.

All AGM’s Genable® dispersions are formulated for long term stability and engineered to aid easy incorporation into existing manufacturing processes. The new range follows on the heels of the recent launches of the Genable® 1000 series (for enhancing existing anti-corrosive additive performance) and the Genable® 2000 series (specifically for corrosion inhibition on aluminum substrates).
