Grafoid joins global technology leaders at ‘science park’ in Kingston

innovation-park Focus Graphite (TSXV: FMS; OTCQX: FCSMF; FSE: FKC) is developing one of the most important graphite projects in North America at Lac Knife, Quebec. Focus has already signed a 10-year strategic agreement for up to 40,000 tons per year (400,000 ton total) of graphite concentrate with a Chinese-based industrial consortium located in the port city of Dalian, Lianing Province, China; one of the China’s most important centers for trade and industry, and home to many of high-tech companies. Grafoid Inc. is Focus Graphite’s graphene research and development partner, which has been cooperating with a number of companies worldwide to achieve…

Grafoid and Altamat to develop mass market graphene based 3D printable powders

3DPrinter Focus Graphite Inc. (‘Focus’, FMS: TSX.V; FCSMF: OTCQX; FKC: FSE) is ever closer to bringing graphene to the mass market through its partner Grafoid Inc in which it has a 40% stake in. In the past few weeks, Grafoid has announced a series of important deals aiming at bringing graphene to the mass market. Yesterday, Grafoid Inc. announced it has signed an agreement with Altamat Inc. for the construction of an atomization facility to produce MesoGraf™ (Mesograf) graphene-based powders and filaments for 3D printing. It was only last week, meanwhile, that Grafoid announced a deal with one of the largest…

Grafoid and Mitsui Sign MOU to Develop Markets in Japan for Grafoid’s MesoGraf™ Graphene

Grafoid-200x150 March 25, 2014 (Source: Marketwired) -- Grafoid Inc. is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Grafoid and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. ("Mitsui"), one of Japan's leading corporations, to identify and develop market opportunities in Japan for Grafoid's MesoGraf™ - the first universally trademarked graphene. The two-year agreement was signed by Grafoid CEO and co-founder Gary Economo and by Mr. Takeo Kato, General Manager of Advanced Material Division of Mitsui. The agreement calls for the parties to jointly undertake a one-year detailed market feasibility study to identify and evaluate market opportunities prior to formalizing industrial and commercial…

Game Changer: Grafoid’s new patent-pending MesoGraf™ technology sets the standard for high-energy-density graphene

mesograf-85725531 In my most-recent InvestorIntel Graphite & Graphene Week-in-Review, I wrote about the forthcoming “graphene revolution”… and here’s further proof about the incredible innovation and transformation happening in this sector. In a collaborative agreement, a new, provisional patent application was recently filed on behalf Grafoid Inc. and Hydro-Québec for MesoGraf™ (MesoGraf); the first trademarked graphene in the world. MesoGraf is a high-density graphene composition obtained from natural graphite. The application describes a new composition using a type of graphene. The inventors, Dr. Gordon Chiu (Chief Scientist, Vice President and Co-founder of Grafoid), Dr. Karim Zaghib (Director of Hydro-Québec's Research Institute), Abdelbast Guerfi (Hydro-Québec's…

MesoGraf™gives graphene the elusive scalability to reach the Market

Today, May 23, 2013, Grafoid Inc., part of Focus Graphite (TSXV: FMS | OTCQX: FCSMF), announced the launch of a trademarked graphene product called MesoGraf™ (‘MesoGraf’). The product represents nothing short of the first platform for the industrialization and commercialization of graphene. Stories about graphene’s novel applications and their potential are published daily around the world. MesoGraf, therefore, represents the first tool through which to achieve graphene’s potential, bridging the gap between the growing bodies of graphene research with actual commercialization of the material, essentially making the science available to the market. Until now, graphene has been limited to development…
