XG Sciences, which works with graphene nanoplatelets, says that that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to research graphene filled composites for the Chinese market.

The company had also opened the Graphene Applications Development Center (GADC), a joint venture company between Sinochem Plastics Co Ltd and Yuyao PGS New Material Technology Co Ltd in in Yuyao City, China. The parties recently partnered to develop graphene enhanced anti-corrosion coatings for industrial and marine applications.

Under the the new MoU, graphene-filled thermoplastic composites will be developed by GADC using XG’s xGnP graphene nanoplatelets. The companies plant to use a range of thermoplastic materials for markets including automotive, industrial, and consumer items such clothing. Products resulting from the collaboration will be manufactured and sold in China through Sinochem and PGS.
