First Graphene Secures Major Production Order for Mining Wear Linings

First Graphene has signed a new agreement with newGen for the supply of three tonnes of its PureGRAPH products.

These will be used by newGen for the manufacture of wear linings used in bucket wheels, pipe spools and conveyor applications in the mining industry.

The company says blending PureGRAPH graphene in powder form with existing elastomers provides considerable mechanical improvements to the material, including enhanced tensile and tear strength, plus far greater abrasion resistance. This extends the life of wear liners, reducing downtime and cost for mining and quarrying operators.

The new order was contingent on the award of NICNAS certification (the Australian National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme) for First Graphene, which follows the company’s similar accreditation in Europe under REACH.  

“This is another important contract for the company as we commercialise the use of graphene in a growing number of industry sectors, from elastomers to concrete,” said, Craig McGuckin, Managing Director for First Graphene.

“In particular, it highlights the importance for customers of working with the only global supplier with an integrated supply chain, from wholly owned mine through to high volume graphene production capability.”
