First Graphene (FGR) has entered into a collaboration agreement with Fosroc International to develop PureGRAPH, graphene-enhanced cement additives or grinding aids. The companies have entered a five-year collaboration agreement to facilitate the exchange of knowledge through research and development work.
Low doses of PureGRAPH-enhanced cement additives used in the final grinding phase of cement production can allow for up to 20% reduced clinker factor cement output while preserving or increasing cement performance.
Each party will contribute scientific and industry knowledge at their own expense, with First Graphene providing access to its PureGRAPH product range, formulation and dispersion process technologies, and laboratory trials, and Fosroc handling additive raw material supplies and formulations, mixing and dispersion, and laboratory trials.
“The agreement with Fosroc is a significant further step for First Graphene as we implement our go-to-market plan to become the world’s leading supplier of graphene-enhanced cement and concrete solutions,” FGR's Managing Director Michael Bell said.
“Fosroc has significant penetration into multiple global markets that will be highly beneficial in helping expand our reach and educating the market on the significant benefits, including emission reductions, that graphene-enhanced products provide.”
