Greenwing Resources (GW1) has successfully produced environmentally friendly high-quality graphene in collaboration with the Swinburne University of Technology (SUT).

In March, Greenwing and SUT signed a master research and development agreement to develop advanced materials using expandable graphite and graphene from graphmada premium concentrates.

The company explains its graphmada graphite was combined with a non-toxic organic solvent, prior to liquid phase exfoliation occurring to produce a liquid. The resultant liquid then went through spectroscopy and characterisation steps.

The product of this is reportedly highly suitable to graphene and high end technologies —including use as an advanced fireproof panelling product.

Additionally the company said graphite characterisation of large-flake graphite concentrates demonstrated low impurities, defects and oxidation.

The company now intends for graphene characterisation to be completed in ISO9001 laboratories.

It also wants to optimise the graphene percentage for strength and fire retardation and for manufacturing of next generation cladding prototypes.

Greenwing Resources ended Wednesday up 10 per cent trading at 38 cents.
