Materials engineering excellence

Best-in-class
marine coatings.

We believe that the commercial value of graphene lies in the ability to transfer its intrinsic properties into other materials, thus creating higher value materials and products which possess specifically enhanced characteristics. 

As a disruptive technology, graphene has the potential to replace or enhance the performance of existing materials in a wide range of applications and sectors.

Markets we address

Solving massive
industrial challenges.

We are Canada’s leading materials engineering firm focused on using
graphene to deliver solutions for a wide range of applications.

Marine Shipping

Biofouling management can be an effective tool in enhancing energy efficiency and reducing air emissions from ships.

Hydro Power

Reservoirs and hydropower facilities are plagued by biofouling species, resulting in costly maintenance and repairs.

Aquaculture

The fouling of cages and netting, which is costly to remove, is detrimental to fish health and yield and can cause equipment failure.

Yacht Racing

Smooth hull and aero flow through the water is just as important to boat speed as the sails and ondeck systems, but it is an area that is often overlooked.
