Graphene 3D Lab (V.GGG) to Acquire Graphene Laboratories Inc.

graphene 3d labGraphene 3D Lab (V.GGG) will be acquiring all shares of their ex-parent graphene company Graphene Laboratories. Graphene 3D was incorporated in 2013 as a spin-off company geared towards the development of graphene to be used in a wide range of manufacturing processes and products. As with any new startup company, there were major risks. At the time of their inception, Graphene 3D did not actually have any functional products, only concepts. However in just a year, the company had already developed a 3D printed battery and a graphene filament designed for 3D printing. The company was able to raise funds through investors and take the company public, eventually resulting in a valuation of over $40 million.

SAAB Group Researches Using Graphene to Camouflage Ships, Aircraft, and Military Uniforms

Graphene camouflage

Saab Group (OMX:SAAB B) is an aerospace and defense company based on Sweden. It is also the parent company of the SAAB automobile company. SAAB is a billion dollar giant, and just like aerospace company Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), SAAB is actively researching how to apply graphene to its products and services. In this case, the company is researching how to use graphene for camouflage. News about defense and military companies researching applications of graphene is always very positive. Some of today’s most widely used technology was first embraced, developed, or even solely invented for military applications (e.g. aircraft, navigation systems, communication systems, pharmaceuticals, production methods, electronic computers). The SAAB group is now part of the list of graphene stocks and companies.

Here is what SAAB had to say about graphene and its research on cloaking:

List of Australian Graphene Producers and What to Avoid

You are probably already aware that graphene production is highly expensive. The future of graphene and all of its applications hinges on commercialization which centres on mass production. The graphene company that is able to make large amounts of graphene in an economically viable way will win the contest.

Every week it seems there are major developments and announcements about new proprietary production methods. But there may be some marketing trickery, and deliberate vagueness when it comes to these “breakthroughs.”

If you are interested in investing in graphene, more specifically investing in graphene stocks involved in production, then it is imperative that you pay attention to the significance of the company’s claims.

Do not fall victim to extravagant claims. Claims by graphene companies are not necessarily regulated as in the case of pharmaceuticals for example. There seems to be no standard list of attributes the industry goes by, especially with regards to the stability and quality of the graphene.

Here is a list of some graphene producing companies that are listed on the Australian stock exchange (ASX). Visit the Ultimate Graphene Company List for over 150 graphene stocks and graphene companies.

Graphene Could Be Used to Increase Performance in Next Generation Fuel- Efficient Cars

Scientists at the University of Manchester (where graphene was first synthesized in 2004) have published new research which indicates that graphene may enable the production of cleaner and more fuel-efficient cars. According to the researchers, heat generated by graphene can be converted into electricity. This could be applied throughout the automotive industry which is always seeking to improve performance and fuel efficiency. Tesla Motors could be an example of a company which may employs the use of graphene in its cars in the form of graphene batteries.

Heat that is generated by a car’s engine is usually wasted energy. New hybrid cars could instead utilize this heat to re-charge batteries and power auxiliary functions such as the air conditioning system. Graphene is perfect for this purpose as it is a thermoelectric material. This means that graphene can convert heat to electricity.  Graphene exceeds in performance compared to conventional thermoelectric materials which can face challenges such as the ability to dissipate heat and electrical conduction efficiency.
