The world leader in graphene nanoplatelet dispersions for industrial applications

Universal Matter GBR Ltd (formerly Applied Graphene Materials) is proud to be a leading innovator in graphene dispersion and application technology. Quite simply, we are graphene. We are proud to be the industry-leading organisation that is truly harnessing the potential of graphene in real-life products and materials. Taking a substance that is difficult to work with and creating stable, standard dispersions that are easy to formulate with and produce consistent, reliable results for customers.

We are experts in helping our customers choose, or create, the perfect graphene nanoplatelet dispersion to meet their needs. 

Universal Matter has developed cleaner, faster, more sustainable, and more economical technology to scaleup and commercialize graphene, a carbon-based nanomaterial that can provide much improved mechanical and conductivity properties for other materials. Our proprietary and patented Flash Joule Heating process can convert diverse carbon sources into graphene with tunable characteristics for an almost unlimited number of applications. 

Since those early days, UM has made major technology advances in the application of this new class of materials, adding performance-enhancing characteristics to a range of product categories, working with technology and product development partners across the globe, including internationally-known household brands.

Headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, with U.S. and U.K. Innovation Centers in Houston TX and Redcar UK, Universal Matter’s vision is to build on its strong R&D foundation to scale its production process and become the world’s leading supplier of lower cost and higher quality graphene materials from diverse carbon sources.
