First Graphene Limited (ASX:FGR; “First Graphene” or “the Company”) is pleased to advise on positive progress regarding the Company’s collaborative project with world-leading researchers at the University of Warwick on the use of graphene in thermoplastic systems.
Specializing in research and development of graphene -- a wonder material known for its small size (consisting of a two-dimensional layer of atoms) and incredible strength -- First Graphene is also a force multiplier. This attribute was in full effect when the company announced a one-step process that converts petroleum feedstock (raw materials) to graphite and graphene materials.
Net shipments into China via the Shanghai Diamond Exchange (SDE) grew 393% year on year to $722 million during the three months ending March 31, the institution reported Tuesday. Import volume jumped 394% to 699,500 carats.
This is one of several reasons why graphene has captured the imagination across the full spectrum of the applied sciences industry, from the experts running research and development to the individual investor seeking to capitalize and profit from the next technological innovation. A carbon allotrope consisting of a single atom layer arranged in a two-dimensional honeycomb lattice, graphene is simultaneously lightweight, resilient and incredibly strong.
It was the first time since De Beers was able to take measures against freefalling prices earlier in the year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Heading into that sale, rough-diamond buyers were bulking up on inventory to advantage the critical sales period between Thanksgiving to the Chinese New Year. Still, some questioned whether demand would continue supporting diamond prices beyond the holiday season.
The OTCQB replaced the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)-operated OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB) as the main market for trading OTC securities that report to a U.S. regulator. The OTCQB marketplace is run through OTC Link, an inter-dealer quotation and trading system developed by OTC Markets Group. OTC Link is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a broker-dealer and also as an alternative trading system (ATS).
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.
Principally, diamonds benefit from holistic necessity. Whether used as jewelry, investment or even industrial purposes, demand for diamonds relatively stays consistent no matter what is going on in the economy.
