Grafoid Inc. announces it has signed an agreement with Altamat Inc. for the construction of an atomization facility to produce MesoGraf graphene-based powders and filaments for 3D printing.

Grafoid is a privately held graphene research, development and investment company. Grafoid and the National University of Singapore (NUS) developed a unique process that uniquely transforms raw, unprocessed graphite ore to affordable and scalable, high-purity, few layer graphene instantly. The company launched their graphene-based material platform called 'MesoGraf' in 2013 and said that they would able to mass produce high-quality graphene at affordable prices.

The agreement was signed by Grafoid Chief Executive Officer Gary Economo and by Dr. Hani Henein for Edmonton, Alberta-based Altamat.

The agreement provides Grafoid with the exclusive global rights to apply technologies invented by Dr. Henein for use in a wide range of functionalized powders for 3D printing applications.

Altamat Inc. is an advanced materials manufacturing consultancy founded by Dr. Henein, who has expertise in materials process engineering for metals, metallic alloys and composites. Dr. Henein is a renowned researcher and inventor, a Professor of Material Engineering at the University of Alberta and the developer of innovative, cost effective, environmentally sustainable manufacturing processes.

The atomization facility will be built at Grafoid's facility located at the Innovation Park technology center in Kingston, Ontario.

"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," Mr. Economo said.

As more and more industries adopt additive manufacturing into their production process, it opens doors to companies like Grafoid that can meet industrial demand for the scalable, mass production of new Mesograf- based 3D printable powders and filaments.

Mr. Economo said Grafoid aims to supply a wide range of Mesograf-based powders and filaments that will allow manufacturing companies in every industry to utilize additive manufacturing processes to produce their end products on demand, not solely for prototyping purposes.
