Black Swan Graphene launches its fourth commercial Graphene Enhanced Masterbatch product

Black Swan Graphene has announced the release of its fourth commercial Graphene Enhanced Masterbatch ("GEM") product, as it continues to deploy broad commercialization efforts.

This new thermoplastic polyurethane ("TPU") masterbatch is an addition to the GraphCore 01 product line. TPU is a versatile polymer that combines the properties of rubber and plastic, making it an ideal material for a variety of applications ranging from industrial to consumer goods; inflatable products are particularly well suited for this new GEM. Using this new GEM, Black Swan has reportedly demonstrated a 25% improvement in light weighting capability, along with other mechanical performance improvements.


The Company has launched this year the GraphCore Graphene Nanoplatelet (GNP) dispersion and powder products. The GraphCore Powder (GC1004) is the core building block used in the four GEM products released to date.

Michael Edwards, Chief Operating Officer of Black Swan, commented: "We are pleased with the launch of our fourth commercial GEM product which has been through rigorous industrial trials and is commercially ready. We have garnered commercial interest from several potential customers, showcasing our new GEM’s applicability in various industries, including clothing, inflatables, and sporting goods. Swan Chemical Inc., one of Black Swan’s distributors targeting the United States, expects demand for the product, which is now available for shipment in volume from their warehouse in Akron, Ohio. We also anticipate further interest directly from customers in the near future."
