The Company’s fiscal year was especially challenging due to the COVID-19 outbreak. “We started to experience the pandemic’s negative impacts in the third fiscal quarter, initially due to a decline in demand for research products because the universities and research laboratories in Asia were closed due to people being in quarantine,” said Daniel Stolyarov, President & CEO of G6 Materials Corp. “The pandemic reached our place of business in the fourth quarter and, by the various orders of the Government of the State of New York, our operations were ultimately forced to slow down due to some personnel working remotely. However, despite these challenges management found exciting new business opportunities related to the sale of disinfection and purification products,” added Mr. Stolyarov. Based on the Company’s success in selling air filtration products, G6 has continued to pursue this market opportunity.

- Marine Composite Project: As previously announced, the Company entered into a research agreement with a Singapore-based firm to develop a graphene composite for marine vessels. This project was mostly completed in the fiscal year of 2020, which the Company reported as complete in August of 2020. While working on this project, the Company developed two composite formulations using graphene additives with carbon fiber and fiberglass that provide a 14-fold improvement of fracture toughness and a 3-fold improvement of fatigue resistance. These results were reported in an event at Capitol Hill (Washington DC, USA) and at the TechConnect World Innovation Expo. Detailed technical specifications can be found at the Company’s web site.
- Pharma Project: In October of 2019, the Company was granted a patent from US Patent Office for its proprietary technology involving the synthesis of trifluoroketones, which serves as a key intermediate step in the synthesis of a drug under development by the Company’s pharmaceutical industry partner. This drug is being tested for the treatment of certain lung conditions and, in June of 2020, the Company signed a licensing agreement with its partner. According to the terms of this agreement, in exchange for a US$220,000 payment the Company is providing a 2-year exclusive license and an option to purchase the IP rights for a fixed price of US$1,000,000.
- Air Purification Project: In the last quarter of the fiscal year, to address the demand for air purification products as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic the Company added a line of existing air purification products to its portfolio. Further, the Company’s research and development team developed a graphene-based technology to create an enhanced air filtration system. Subsequently, a provisional patent application was filed to protect the IP rights for this technology.
Despite the global COVID-19 pandemic presenting society with numerous challenges in 2020, it has also created opportunities to identify areas for improvement, apply new technologies and make permanent advancements for the future. Based on G6’s recent success in selling air filtration and purification products to meet a surge in demand, the Company has continued to allocate resources in pursuit of this market opportunity. Management expects this positive trend to continue into the 2021 fiscal year and is working to develop a new line of proprietary, graphene-based, air filtration products to launch into the market. In parallel, G6 will continue to sell its legacy product lines and strengthen its portfolio of intellectual property through further research and development.
