known as the thinnest material thought to exist in the universe. Yet this remarkable discovery is also a contradiction. Despite being a million times thinner than a single strand of human hair, it’s 150 times stronger than its equivalent weight of steel.
In many ways, graphene is a miraculous material. Even with today’s astonishing inventions, applied science manufacturers must make critical compromises. For instance, while it’s possible with current technology to develop an electric vehicle with a total range that rivals combustion-powered cars, the tradeoff occurs in pricing. Simply put, your average consumer can’t afford the battery capacity necessary to achieve the above parity.
But that’s why graphene is such a compelling discovery, promising to upend the paradigm of comprised technologies while delivering enhanced efficiencies for current platforms and applications. Among the competitors in this burgeoning field, none feature the extraordinary acumen, expertise and successful track record of First Graphene (ASX:FGR, OTCMKTS:FGPHF).
While many industrial firms claim to be graphene innovators, the harsh reality is that the sector is unregulated. That’s according to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, which warned that due to a lack of standardization of the graphene space, “companies cannot be sure what they are buying.” So far, this hurdle has prevented the transition of the wonder material from academia to commercialization.
But it’s here where First Graphene aims to make the biggest impact. Rather than adopt a first-to-market approach like the litany of fly-by-night operations, FGR is about first-to-market correctly. Otherwise, it may be better for enterprise-level clients to use standard graphite technology rather than substandard graphene products.
Furthermore, no other pure graphene manufacturer has the deep and established provenance of FGR. In collaboration with newGen Group, First Graphene developed high-performing wear protection products for the mining industry. Subsequently, a range of blue-chip firms, including BHP (NYSE:BHP), Fortescue Metal Group (OTCMKTS:FSUGY) and Rio Tinto (NYSE:RIO), partnered with FGR and newGen to provide polymer and ceramic linings.
Previously, the biggest barrier to participation in the First Graphene story was access. Since FGR stock was listed under its home Australian Securities Exchange, American investors were limited to opening a brokerage account that offers foreign stock trading services.
Recently, though, First Graphene was listed under the OTC Markets Group, colloquially known as the “pink sheets.” Under the ticker symbol FGPHF, any retail investor from the U.S. can easily participate in one of the most groundbreaking developments in the capital markets.
Better yet, FGPHF stock has demonstrated tremendous upside mobility. Just between Dec. 30, 2020 and Jan. 5, 2021, shares soared 67%. True, shares have come down substantially since then. Nevertheless, the massive commercialization potential of First Graphene could make this one of the biggest stories over the next few years.
While it’s always risky to buy so-called penny stocks, First Graphene separates itself from the rest of the crowd with its proven applications and world-class leadership team. FGR priced at current levels is an opportunity that might not come around once people recognize this compelling narrative. Therefore, make sure to give this a thorough assessment.
