Velox, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, will offer the full Graphistrength product range across Europe (except in the UK, where Hubron Speciality Ltd is the appointed distributor). The range currently includes the pure Graphistrength products and a range of masterbatches designed to ease incorporation into thermoplastics, resins and elastomers.

Chemicals company Arkema, based in France, says Graphistrength can be used in numerous applications, including high strength composite materials, electronic components, conductive coatings, and electrode material for batteries and fuel cells.

Velox currently has 15 offices servicing customers in the majority of European Union countries as well as in Russia and Turkey.
