Graphitene appoints Azelis exclusive distributor in Italy

Azelis announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Graphitene International Limited, effective 1st of September 2016.

Under the agreement, Azelis will promote the Graphitene™ range in the coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE), chemicals and rubber & plastic additives markets in Italy. 

The portfolio includes a wide range of products that satisfy the growing demands of the construction, energy and transportation industries by providing innovative products and bespoke technical solutions for customers. The Graphitene™ range includes various types of graphene-based materials, such as graphene, graphene oxide, doped graphene and functionalised graphene. They are available in the form of dispersions, powders, foils and films. Graphene-based admixtures, formulated for various applications such as concrete, are also available for purchase, in addition to expanded graphite and ultra-pure graphite powders.

Gaute Juliussen, Graphitene CEO, says: “Azelis is the leading global speciality chemicals distributor, with a diverse range of innovative products and thousands of customers who demand performance. We are proud that Graphitene products will now be distributed throughout Italy to a variety of key industries that recognise graphene’s potential to truly deliver a significant competitive advantage.”

Marco Gerosa, Managing Director Azelis Italy, adds: "Graphene nanotechnology is the new frontier for future industrial applications. Producers are increasingly looking at business simplification and handover of small and medium size companies to specialised chemical distributors, and we are delighted that Graphitene has chosen Azelis to promote their innovative products. Some of our customers have already shown interest in this new technology for different applications – we can now offer a solution that is developed directly with them, for example to increase the mechanical characteristic of plastic materials."
