Grafoid To Produce MesoGraf, Graphene Based 3D Printing Materials

Share this Article

“Graphene,” the word itself generates excitement from almost every industry out there.  Graphene is the one atom thick, grafoid-2honeycomb lattice structure of carbon atoms, with applications which promise to revolutionize the tech industry in ways which may still be unimaginable.

Today Grafoid, a privately held Canadian company, engaged in the development of graphene based patents worldwide, announced that they are entering the 3D printing materials market, a market which is expecting to see explosive growth over the next few years.

Grafoid has signed an agreement with Altamat Inc. for the construction of a facility which will be used for atomization, at the Grafoid-1Innovation Park technology center in Kingston, Ontario.  This facility will produce a graphene based powder and filament, called MesoGraf, for the use within 3D printers.  According to Grafoid, the new material “sets the global standard for high-energy density graphene from a globally patented process.”

Altamat Inc., founded by Dr. Henein, is a consultancy specializing in advanced material manufacturing. The agreement will provide Grafoid with exclusive rights to utilize the technology invented by Dr. Henein, which is ideal for the use of functionalized powders for applications within the 3D printing industry. According to their press release, issued earlier today, “Grafoid believes MesoGraf™ sets the global standard for high-energy density graphene from a globally patented process. That process uniquely transforms raw, unprocessed graphite ore to affordable and scalable, high-purity, few layer graphene.”

The CEO of Grafoid, Gary Economo was quoted as stating the following about this agreement, “Grafoid believes MesoGraf™ sets the global standard for high-energy density graphene from a globally patented process. That process uniquely transforms raw, unprocessed graphite ore to affordable and scalable, high-purity, few layer graphene. “Success in 3D graphene printed materials markets comes from an ability to create the highest performing products at the lowest possible cost on a safe and environmentally sustainable basis.”

It will certainly be interesting to see just what type of products are printed with these materials, and what the properties of such objects are once printed. Feel free to discuss the new MesoGraf materials at 3DPrintBoard, and stay up to date on any subsequent news that breaks about the new MesoGraf materials.
