CVD Equipment has signed a distribution agreement with Graphene Laboratories for chemical vapor deposited (CVD) graphene products. Under the terms of the agreement, CVD Equipment will manufacture CVD grown Graphene based materials and products and Graphene Laboratories will market and sell them on a global basis.
CVD Equipment’s application laboratory provides process development and material growth services for a wide range of advanced nanomaterials, including carbon nanotubes, silicon and other nanowires, CVD graphene, transparent conducting oxide (TCO) materials and other CVD processes. The company hosts a range of CVD research and production equipment that will be utilized for CVD Graphene production. CVD grown Graphene is projected to be used for production of Graphene-based electronics, sensors, MEMS, solar batteries.
“The ability to mass produce CVD Graphene is a key milestone for Graphene commercialization,” said Dr. Elena Polyakova, CEO of Graphene Laboratories.
“Currently, the progress in development of Graphene-based commercial products is largely stalled by a lack of supply of high-quality wafer-size Graphene films. CVD grown Graphene is well positioned to address this market demand. We anticipate strong interest from academic and industrial customers in our CVD Graphene products and this is an extremely important partnership for our company,” continued Polyakova.
Karlheinz Strobl, VP of business development at CVD said,” By leveraging the process development and manufacturing capabilities of our Application Laboratory and by collaborating with Graphene Laboratories on CVD Graphene based product developments, we believe we can shorten the time to market for a range of already existing and future nano enabled products. Together, we are able to offer and ship a growing array of CVD Graphene products. Our initial product variety has already been supplied to our first customers.”
