Sydney, May 4: Imagine Intelligent Materials has been selected by Materials Connexion to participate in its New York flagship showroom, which displays the newest and most exciting materials to a wide audience of designers and engineers of all disciplines.

Imagine Intelligent Materials has provided samples of its imgne® X3 conductive geotextile for the New York showroom library and as many as 13 other sites around the world, including Bangkok, Bilbao, Daegu, Milan, Skövde and Tokyo.

Phil Aitchison, VP R&D & co-founder of Imagine Intelligent Materials said, “We are excited to be part of this showcase of advanced materials for world-leading designers. This is a window that allows our conductive and sensing textiles for large-scale industrial applications to be viewed by some of the biggest companies in the world.”

Chris Gilbey, CEO & co-founder, adds: “For graphene to deliver on its potential, solutions must be based on a deep understanding of the customer’s supply chain and its business problems, as well as a sophisticated understanding of the chemistry of the materials that graphene is intended to enhance. We work with partner businesses to develop bespoke materials solutions, tailored to the unique requirements of each different application, and able to integrate into our data collection technology that extracts useful information from the material, presenting it on a dashboard for the end user.”

About graphene:

Graphene’s discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in 2010. Graphene is the first two-dimensional material and is classed as a “super-material”, offering extremely high electrical and thermal conductivity, hydrophobicity, strength, and impermeability to all gases.

About Imagine Intelligent Materials:

Imagine IM is a vertically integrated graphene applications developer and manufacturer. Imagine IM’s conductive coatings make textiles into smart sensors. Imagine IM’s integrated communications systems capture sensing data and process it to provide real time location based information to the end user. The Company was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists and engineers led by Chris Gilbey and Phil Aitchison, with a vision to create disruptive products and solutions that leverage the promise of graphene. Imagine IM has an innovative certification and licensing model that ensures customers and licensees can be confident that their products will always perform to the necessary standards. Imagine IM is the first company in the world to develop conductive geosynthetic materials using functionalised graphene.
