Angstron Materials Inc. has named Digichem Corporation, Anyang City, Korea, its distribution partner for Korea. Digichem, a management innovation enterprise, specializes in exporting chemical ingredients and intermediates for markets that include paint and coatings, adhesives, automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical, printing and packaging and film conversion.
"Graphene has emerged as a promising material," says Edward Eunjung Kim, marketing director for Digichem. "Angstron Materials has successfully developed innovative technologies for mass production of graphene for various applications. Digichem is very enthusiastic about the opportunity to leverage research and development activities in Korea by introducing Angstron's graphene products and technologies to Korean customers. We work with a variety of companies that have applications such as flexible displays, heat dissipation solutions and energy storage and are looking for enabling material like graphene to further develop these technologies."
Headquartered in Dayton, Ohio (U.S.) Angstron Materials is the world's largest producer of nano graphene platelets (also called NGPs) and the only manufacturer able to produce pristine graphene. Angstron offers six different graphene products, both oxide and pristine, in varying thicknesses and dimensions. The manufacturer also works with companies and researchers to select the right material, functionalize it and gain access to critical process efficiencies. These steps dramatically reduce the risk associated with innovative product development.
"The Korean government is encouraging entities in research and development activities targeting commercialization of graphene materials for display, energy and electronic printing applications," says Kim. "Angstron's ability to provide a range of graphene products and work with companies from concept to production is a good fit for our objectives."
