Applied Graphene Materials (LON:AGM), the producer of speciality graphene materials, announced that the Company has received patent approval for its unique manufacturing process in the tenth out of eleven territorial applications made in 2010. AGM’s strategy is to ensure it has patent coverage in all of the major international territories in order to protect its technology.
This latest patent approval is in a strategically important territory for the Group and follows receipt of approval from the USA patent office in 2018.
As the Company deepens its dispersion expertise to enable the effective transfer of graphene’s unique combination of properties into customer materials, AGM continues to file patent applications for its proprietary manufacturing and dispersion processes, and products as appropriate, with a particular focus on graphene dispersions for paints and coatings.
Adrian Potts, Chief Executive Officer of Applied Graphene Materials, said:
“Our aim is to become a leading supplier of graphene globally. Receiving patent approval in another strategically important territory for AGM is an important development, as we continue to secure our competitive position in international markets where we see significant long-term commercial opportunity.”
