FGR has a new website, www.firstgraphene.net, which is
QUOTE
an opportunity for visitors to develop a deeper understanding of the potential of graphene and its applications.

With a clean design and vibrant imagery, the content reflects not only the First Graphene brand but provides insight into the real potential for graphene with their range of high-quality PureGRAPH® products....
First Graphene is making ... advances with a ... manufacturing platform and an established 100 tonne per year graphene production capacity. Furthermore, it is the only company in the world with regulatory approval to sell tonnes of graphene in both Europe and Australia.

Been a long time coming but finally FGR looked to have the "T"s crossed and the "I"s dotted. Interesting year ahead. biggrin.gif

FGR is placed in the unique position of being the only company with regulatory approval to manufacture and sell graphene products in Australia.

• NICNAS approval augments the Company’s existing REACH registration for the UK and Europe.

After doing little for a year and a half, FGR has risen from 18c to 25c on consistent buying over the last week or so. No Anns.

Trading Halt.... Capital Raising.

May as well trade these, because the thirst for capital is relentless, any upkick and the head of stream is lost. Dilutive, too.

Updating the market
QUOTE
- ....improvements in performance of industrial composite (fibreglass) products in terms of strength, weight, flexibility and reduced water permeability with the addition of PureGRAPH™, resulting in compelling economics.

- Focusing on high volume, high profit margin markets for PureGRAPH™ with fast product adoption cycles and shorter regulatory requirements.

- Expect to achieve cash flow breakeven levels by the end of 2019, with strong growth in sales volumes thereafter.

then a few words about big G

Regulatory Preconditions to the Selling of Graphene

As previously advised, various jurisdictions around the globe require graphene materials to be registered with government agencies beforethey can l egally be sold. This once-off registration process is required due to graphene being a newly developed substance.

On the 22nd January 2019, FGR advised it had secured REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) approval, relevant to the UK and Europe markets, to be able to legally sell up to 10 tonnes p.a. of graphene materials. The equivalent Australian process involves registration of PureGRAPH™ with The National Industrial Chemical Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS)

Industry-based Preconditions to Commercialisation


Graphene has been touted by many scientists and companies as an amazing new nanomaterial that will impact positively upon many materials, as an additive, to greatly improve the performance characteristics of the material to which it is added. While, the path to commercialisation has been slower than some optimists had expected, in the context of new and disruptive technologies, the time frame has not been unusual.

The greatest obstacles to a faster commercialisation have been the development of high-quality, high-performing products in the first instance, and then the availability of a reliable supply. No manufacturer will consider adopting graphene-based technology if it is not confident it can receive reliable supply. That is just common sense.

First Graphene recognised these obstacles and has addressed them head on. It has gone beyond the relatively simple process of manufacturing graphene with its production methodology, spending considerable time and effort with designing and installing finishing steps to ensure the consistent quality of its product. This culminated in the launching of the PureGRAPH™ product range late in 2018, with supporting technical data. When customers buy PureGRAPH™ they will know with certainty what they are getting... .

and some caution
QUOTE
Graphene Sales and Product Verticals

Currently there is no well-defined end market for the sale of graphene materials. Therefore, it is necessary for the Company to engage directly with potential customers. The growth of the sales book will be achieved by direct interface with industry. The time line from introduction to industrial scale sales will usually be in the order of 4-6 months depending upon how innovative the application is, the clients business model and the ease of adoption for the introduction of PureGRAPH™ into their production process.

Further, the need to comply with industry or government standards could have a significant effect on timing. The simplest product verticals will be in industrial markets with low barriers to entry and shorter qualification times. Accepting that applications involving public safety, aircraft, mass transport or construction will take longer to approve.
SP up on the realism

In the shorter term, First Graphene is very focused upon rapidly growing graphene sales and has identified there is significantly greater potential
here and now for bulk product sales to the fibre composite and polymer markets. These require little regulatory approval.

• FGR is in receipt of what it believes to be the largest single order for the commercial supply of bulk graphene materials to date,

thereby signalling that the commercialisation of graphene has gone beyond a concept to become a reality.


• newGen has placed an order for 2,000 kg of PureGRAPH™ range products to be delivered during 2019,


for use in the Armour-GRAPHâ„¢ product range


• PureGRAPH™ products from the range of 5, 10 and 20 micron to be drawn down during the 2019 calendar year
whoo-hoo

This is probably an appropriate juncture to raise the hot topic of Hot Copper. We all know what
Hot Copper is. We all know what type of person frequents Hot Copper. I find it quite amazing
that ASIC allows it to continue to operate as a platform that is so often filled with scurrilous and
even defamatory innuendo. Posters hide behind pseudonyms, offering outrageous and
frequently ignorant and misleading comments and opinions, without any accountability. I say
that enough is enough. People need to be held accountable. They need to be clearly
identifiable so they can be pursued and prosecuted for contravention of laws both civil and
legislated. The regulators do no service by allowing these ghosts to operate in what is
effectively a dark web in the investment markets.
