First Graphene Launches PureGRAPH™ Graphene
Products for Inks & Coatings
Over the last five months FGR’s management has worked with various universities and on its own production processes to ensure it could consistently produce a suitable range of products. After exhaustive product tests and discussions with current and potential users it has developed the PureGRAPH™ range.

The initial product includes PureGRAPH™ graphene products with lateral sizes of 20μm, 10μm and 5μm. Further size options will be added later. Due to its unique process it is able to produce graphene with larger lateral sheet sizes if a customer should have a particular application.

Sheet Size Suitability

The product range has been developed to address specific market requirements.

PureGRAPH™ 20

With a lateral size of 20μm this product is ideal where fire retardancy barrier, thermal conductivity and reinforcing properties are required. Applications include fire retardant paints, concretes and geotextiles.

PureGRAPH™ 5

With a lateral size of 5μm this product is particularly useful for formulations in low viscosity systems such as inks where solution stability and final film appearance is important. Applications include electrically conductive inks and coatings.

Due to the method of manufacture and the tightly controlled particle size distribution, of the products agglomeration of the powders is low, making the products readily dispersible in a range of solvent and polymer resin systems.

Evaluation of these products is well underway with university partners and with commercial partners. Orders for several kilogram development quantities from commercial customers are already being supplied.

Managing Director, Craig McGuckin said:

The launch of our PureGRAPH™ high quality graphene products along with a detailed product information sheet is a significant step forward in the commercialization of graphene.

Our customers can now be confident of the quality of the graphene products they are purchasing and assured that their product development has a reliable raw material supply to build from. Our competitive research has revealed that no other manufacturers have been prepared to present the detail of product information shown by FGR.
