In October 2020, Concept Chemicalsand the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) at The University ofManchester undertook an initial feasibility study under a phase 1 programme toinvestigate the effect of graphene addition to five concept chemical carcoatings. The study showed that graphene improved gloss, hydrophobicity andscratch resistance.
Subsequently, both parties agreedthat further experimental work was required to develop a new product andincrease market readiness levels.
After a phase 2 collaborativeproject and industrial trials “ZirconiteZG-365” waslaunched commercially by Concept Chemicals in April 2022.
