Imagine Intelligent Materials (http://imgne.com) uses graphene to create smart materials which sense and report real-time changes in stress, temperature and moisture.
Imagine IM is the leading Australian developer of graphene-based coatings for industrial textiles and fibres. It was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists led by Chris Gilbey and Phil Aitchison with a vision to create disruptive products and solutions that use graphene. Imagine IM has a number of patents that relate to graphene manufacture and coatings technologies. Imagine IM is the lead industry partner in the Graphene Supply Chain CRC-P, a research project located at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Vic, Australia.

IDTechEx Research Director Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Interviews Dr Andy Goodwin, Advanced Materials Advisor, and Warwick Grigor, Non-Executive Chairman of First Graphene on their fire retardant additive at the IDTechEx Show! Europe 2018.
First Graphene is an advanced materials company seeking to position itself in the lowest cost decile of global graphene suppliers. It has developed an environmentally sound and safe method of converting its supplies of ultra-high grade Sri Lankan graphite into the lowest cost highest quality graphene, in bulk quantities. In so doing it is addressing the three greatest impediments to the commercialisation of graphene, being reliable quality at realistic prices in sufficient volumes to facilitate the development of applications in modern materials, energy storage devices, coatings and polymers. It aims to use these competitive advantages to access new technologies and processes and in turn gain maximum leverage to the entire graphene supply chain, from sourcing the raw material to end use, with development of associated intellectual property for licencing and sales.

BeBop makes fabric sensors that are piezo-resistive, they showed off their latest product the Forte Wireless Glove that can sense finger movements and incorporates haptic feedback. Ideally used in VR applications, this glove can work for 15 hours on a single charge, it is a one size fits all model, very fast response up to 150 frames/second for gaming applications, unique haptic actuators embedded at each finger tip. BeBop also showed pressure sensing foot pads and hand tracking system both using their fabric sensor technology. The company has been shipping its sensors into musical instruments sold by its sister company KMI, one such example was the BopPad a musical drum pad that is in the market already. BeBop is silicon valley based startup, expecting to go into mass production this year.
Standard Graphene shows their water filtering system using their graphene layer to help filter river water for it to be fully fresh drinkable, they are talking to the Vietnamese and Cambodian Government and talking with UNICEF to bring this to Africa. Standard Graphene also shows some of their other latest demonstrations featuring their graphene at the right price and at the right quantity. They are showing a 5kg ultra-light bicycle infused with graphene allows to increase 130% strength on the bicycle. Also bringing their technology to the automotive and later also to space industry.

Chester Burtt from Grafoid speaking to Thomas Keenan at Graphene & 2D Materials Europe, part of the IDTechEx Show! Grafoid creates markets for their graphene investments and provide technical advisory and consulting services to manufacturers, suppliers and processors of graphene materials. Grafoid aim to promote a global standard for economically scalable, affordable graphene. Quality, cost, safety and production are some of the criteria they apply against their investment selection and in our co-developer search activities. For more information see http://www.IDTechEx.com
Talga Resources being interviewed at Graphene & 2D Materials Europe. Talga is a high tech materials company with its own source of integrated supply from multiple advanced high grade graphite projects in northern Sweden. The flagship project "Vittangi" is at development stage and like all the projects, benefits from established high quality infrastructure including low cost power, road, rail and ports. Two of the five graphite projects have unique ore that allows graphite and graphene to be liberated at an atomic level in an extremely cost effective way. The graphene produced is of a high quality and suitable for a range of large volume composite, additive and high technology applications. For more information see http://www.IDTechEx.com
Professor Piotr Kula from Advanced Graphene Products (AGP) and the Lodz University of Technology being interviewed by Thomas Keenan (IDTechEx) at Graphene & 2D Materials Europe . The company, using a production method created by the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (Technical University Lodz) has developed an unique, extremely efficient graphene production process. Graphene is now grown on liquid metal. AGP says that this is an edge of a revolution. This new technology shifts graphene production to an industrial level. It is now possible to manufacture large, high quality graphene sheets for a reasonable price. Using liquid metal also results in superior qualities never seen before.
