Specialty graphene nanoplatelet dispersions producer Applied Graphene Materials (AGM) (Cleveland, United Kingdom) has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Rayoung Chemtech Inc. (Taipei, Taiwan). The partnership is designed to extend AGM’s commercial reach directly into the region’s liquid resins, coatings, composites, and polymers sectors.
Founded in 2008, Rayoung Chemtech delivers high-performance specialty chemicals and shares AGM’s vision for helping customers improve material performance and strengthen product competitiveness, according to the companies. The distribution agreement will see the two companies collaborate on customer opportunities and introduce AGM’s proprietary Genable graphene dispersion technology into the Taiwanese coatings and composites market.
“I am really pleased to welcome Rayoung Chemtech Inc. to the commercial team, in line with our strategy to continue expanding our distributor footprint,” says Adrian Potts, CEO of AGM. “We believe that the key to graphene’s continued commercialization is to combine innovative materials technology with a local customer approach that presents the practical advantages of use and the true potential of graphene dispersions in their applications.”
In addition to its own commercial hubs in the United Kingdom and the United States, AGM now has distribution agreements with local expert chemicals and coatings distributors in a growing number of export markets. As a result, AGM says it has achieved excellent regional coverage in providing detailed customer understanding and appreciation of graphene’s potential.
“AGM is a world-leading graphene material innovator and dispersions manufacturer and through their advanced technology, we see the vision, potential, and great possibilities for supporting the development of a wide spread of industries,” says Ray Chung, president of Rayoung Chemtech. “We are very happy to become AGM's partner and jointly introduce new materials that can be practically applied to the Taiwan market. I believe that we can bring higher value to the industry chain and create a better future, together.”
