Global Graphene Group Adds More REACH-Certified Products

 Global Graphene Group (G3) has finalized certification for its second and third products with the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). G3’s PS and PDE products join their previously approved PDR products that were REACH certified earlier this year.

G3’s Gi-SL-B series single layer graphene oxide dispersed in water (N002-PS) is now REACH certified. N002-PS contains oxygen-containing chemical groups on the graphene basal plane. It is dispersible in water and available in two standard concentrations at 0.5 wt% and 1 wt%. It possesses polar functional groups and it is electrically and thermally insulating. Potential applications are conductive coatings, wastewater and water filtration, thin films, packaging, biosensors and much more.

G3’s Gi-PW-B050 series few layer graphene oxide powder (N002-PDE) also finalized its REACH certification. N002-PDE is a high-density single layer graphene powders with high oxygen content on its surface, high aspect ratio, and high specific surface area. Potential applications are paints/coatings, composites, defense, military and more.

“Our N002-PDR is the building block for several of our applications including conductive coating and thermal management,” said G3’s Nathan Holliday, Technical Marketing Manager. “Our PDE is a key material in our solutions portfolio for several applications, including paint and coatings, and nano-intermediate solutions.”

“Our team is focused on actively finalizing our REACH certification for our thermal management related products for consumer electronic applications now,” said Holliday.

G3 is registered with REACH under Graphene Oxide to ship 1 to 10 metric tons of its N002-PS and N002-PDE products into the EU annually with C.S.B. GmbH., the only representative for G3 in the EU. The REACH certification for this product secures G3 the right to market the product in Europe.

REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals. REACH establishes procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances.

G3 is also a proud member of the REACH graphene consortium, taking an active role in how graphene solutions are handled in Europe.

As the leader in the graphene industry, Global Graphene Group adheres to strict environmental, health and safety procedures. G3 has a dedicated internal team focused on environmental, health and safety impacts of our manufacturing for our employees, our customers and our local communities.

About REACH
REACH aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. This is done by the four processes of REACH, namely the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals. REACH also aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. More about REACH: https://echa.europa.eu/regulations/reach/understanding-reach
