Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM) will fly the flag for graphene at two major coatings conferences after launching two new adhesives systems with high thermal conductivity for the space and defence sectors. 

This week, experts from Applied Graphene will be presenting at both the European Coating Symposium (ECS) in Heidelberg, Germany, as well as the Coatings Trends & Technologies conference event in Chicago, USA.

The ECS presentations will be on improving coating performance with graphene nano-platelets and on delivering composite performance with graphene nano-platelets in the printing industry, while the Chicago delegates will hear about how novel graphene nano platelets can figure in anti-corrosive coatings systems.

Applied Graphene said its attendance at both events “displays the company’s continued push for ever-deeper customer engagement in the coatings and composites sectors and reflects their continued focus on developing their dispersion and application IP, making disruptive technology accessible”.

US investors will be able to engage with the company next week at the Fall Investor Summit in New York, formerly know as the Microcap Conference.

Last week, Applied Graphene launched two unique thermally conductive epoxy paste adhesive systems, AGM TP300 and AGM TP400, for the space and defence sectors, which it said are “already being adopted” within the industry.

These two epoxy adhesive systems offer high levels of thermal conductivity and are designed to provide strong levels of mechanical, adhesive and outgassing performance, with cured resin densities as low as 40% of rival conductive adhesives on the market.

This lower level of resin density makes these products therefore highly versatile, while providing end users significant savings in both mass and cost.
