- First Graphene and Steel Blue to commence product development on graphene-enhanced safety boot components.
- Steel Blue is Australia’s leading supplier of safety work boots.
Advanced materials company, First Graphene Limited (“FGR” or “the Company”) (ASX: FGR) is pleased to announce it has joined with Steel Blue for product development of graphene-enhanced safety boots.
First Graphene and Steel Blue have begun jointly working on incorporating Graphene into existing and new materials of Steel Blue footwear to enhance performance and provide wearers with the latest in advanced materials benefits in safety footwear.
In the oil and gas industries, the toe cap is made of a composite to eliminate spark potential from steel caps. The addition of graphene to the composite toe cap may enhance the strength characteristics of the toe cap and provide further user benefits.
Enhancement of other boot components with the introduction of PureGRAPHTM will follow initial trials.
