GIT Selected to Present Graphene Products at Demonstration Showcase

Ten of Atlantic Canada’s most innovative companies were selected to present in Halifax on October 10, 2017 — including Graphite Innovation and Technologies (GIT).

GIT co-founders Mo. Algermozi and Marciel Gaier took to the stage to demonstrate their graphene products and showcase their offerings. Featured were live samples of the GrapheneCoat™ marine coating and XGIT™, GIT’s graphene nanoplatelets (GNP).

The event, Demo Camp HFX, was organized by Volta Labs and there was a capacity crowd in attendance at Pier 21 on the Halifax waterfront.

DemoCamp Halifax is an event for the regional technology and startup community to come together and share what they’ve built as a live demo (no powerpoint allowed), give each other feedback, learn from speakers and connect with one another. Everyone interested in locally-built technology was welcome to attend. Entrepreneurs, makers, developer, students, non-technical and technical, funders, marketers, salespeople, lawyers, accountants – anyone who is interested in regionally-built tech and startups.

GIT announces project with leading boat sales and service company

Graphite Innovation and Technologies (GIT), a leading Canadian materials engineering firm, today shared details of a new collaboration with The Boat Shop, a premier boat sales, service and storage organization based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The project, led by GIT co-founders Marciel Gaier and Mohammed AlGermozi, will connect The Boat Shop with graphene marine coating products that increase boat fuel efficiency, reduce marine biofouling and reduce vessel maintenance time and associated costs.

“We are excited to begin trialing our graphene marine coatings with fantastic partners like The Boat Shop,” states Marciel Gaier, co-founder of Graphite Innovation and Technologies. “There is tremendous potential for their operation to benefit from the powerful properties of graphene.”

GIT launches testing of new anti-biofouling marine coating

Graphite Innovation & Technologies (GIT) Inc. is developing and testing a disruptive marine coating that reduces biofouling on marine vessels.

Phase One of the testing is being conducting at COVE (Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship).

Our anti-biofouling marine coating utilizes graphene that will create a material that works to protect ship hulls, helping to increase fuel inefficiencies and the longevity of boat hulls. By discouraging the growth of organisms, our innovative paints will drastically improve the performance of a boat over its lifetime.
