Dr Ian Flint, COO of Elcora Advanced Materials Corp. (TSXV: ERA | OTCQB: ECORF), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s CEO Tracy Weslosky discuss the difference between fake graphene and real graphene. Discussing the impact of graphene for coatings for a wide range of industries from automotive to shipping, Dr Flint provides an update on Elcora’s Graphene lab, which is currently producing 100 grams of graphene a week, and the overall advancement of graphene technology.

Tracy Weslosky: Dr Flint you’re currently in Elcora’s  graphene lab. Can you tell us what you have been working on?

Ian Flint: At the moment we’re producing graphene for three different clients. As you can see by the lab itself, this is where we make it. We can produce about 100 grams a week.

Tracy Weslosky: Dr Flint, I’m not certain that everyone is aware about how far Elcora has come with graphene, can you tell us about what’s happened over the last quarter and provide an update on the upcoming new year?

Ian Flint: In the last quarter, we have been producing graphene. Also we are currently working on a research program with the National Research Council (NRC), on coating, which is one of the applications that we have been working on. This project will be ongoing in the next few months. We are also working on putting together a graphene research facility in China.

Tracy Weslosky: Graphene right now, has been trending on InvestorIntel.com. In fact, our graphene columns are ranked number one, number three and number five most read articles right now on our site…what’s the interest and please tell us a little bit more your research deal, thank you.

Ian Flint: Coatings is one of the least costly applications to develop. What I mean by that is you don’t need a lot of graphene to do it, therefore the final product isn’t going to be that costly and it can have a really big impact and have very large market. It can be seen as, the low-hanging fruit in terms of the graphene space. We have the production capability right now to supply coatings to manufacturers. We are working closely with coatings manufacturers in order to basically produce various coatings…to access the complete interview, click here

    There are graphene producers that make 100’s of tonnes a year. XG sciences for instance and Perpetuus that are making great coatings. These guys make grams the market needs 100’s of tonnes at $50 a kilo. The number of layers of graphene is irrelevant its how you disperse them and the product you make. Its sad to hear a “scientist with expertise in graphene”, describing anything derived from graphite as true graphene. It is a known fact that true graphene can only be produced in small islands bottom up . Go to Berlin for the Idtechex show you will find producers who produce tens of tonnes and can supply tones of graphenes dispersed an various matrices and are market ready for the market. Hope These guy are there with rolls of their product coated on to a substrate or will they have small samples the size of a business card. Sorry this sounds like more graphene hype. Unless these guys can offer peer reviewed papers that back up their claims once again its a graphite miner who needs to pump the share price up.
