Graphene development company Sparc Technologies has identified three key areas for the commercialisation of its graphene products.
The company told investors that it was pursuing product development in three streams:
- Environment – Industrial Materials – Product Enhancement workstream
- Sustainability and Remediation – Extraction workstream
- And a Health – Living a Better Life workstream.
CEO Mike Bartels said: “Having identified a number of core market opportunities arising from the exceptional results established by our development activities, the company is now progressing from the R&D phase to engaging with potential customers.
“Given the unique properties of graphene and the breadth of the potential applications available for deployment of Sparc’s unique and proprietary graphene technologies, the company has established a matrix by which it will pursue a number of key opportunities across its core business lines, and advance those that are nearer term to market implementation and adoption in priority to others.
“We have now entered into a significant number of Non-Disclosure Agreements with major industry players interested in potentially incorporating our graphene technology into their global products.”
Bartels said Sparc was working on 12 projects within the coatings enhancement work stream, which targets niche markets that we believe can be fast-tracked to commercialisation.
The projects targeted niche applications and the application of graphene dispersion techniques to enhance composites.
A major concrete manufacturer is also evaluating a graphene additive product developed by Sparc.
The company is also currently collaborating with several major industry partners in the biomedical and health space via the ‘Health – ‘Living a Better Life’ workstream.
Bartels said the company was planning manufacturing capabilities which would be tailored to produce material that advances its research and commercialisation.
