CEOCFO: With the announcement of the COVID-19 virus back earlier this year, which escalated into a
pandemic, many people in the world have been living in fear of contracting the virus, but you offer a product that could help with that. Would you tell us about your efforts to develop a disinfectant product to help fight COVID-19?
Yes, we are living in fear and we should not live like that. We have a virus out there but on the other
hand if there is a problem, there is a way to fix it. What we are offering is one way to mitigate the virus. All this
quarantine and isolation is affecting trying to deal with the situation. However, the problem is we cannot always wear
masks and we have to have some sanctuary where we can be sure there is not a virus around.
The way the virus gets from one person to another is through that air. G6 Materials through our research and
development team has found a unique method to incorporate graphene in the air filtration systems making them more
efficient in killing germs. We are currently conducting internal testing, and will apply for the appropriate accreditations
once the testing is completed.
CEOCFO: You mentioned that it will be incorporated in filters. Could it be incorporated in for example HEPA filters that are used in air cleaning devices or filters used in HVAC units for home or industrial use? Finally,
will your graphene additive actually kill and not just trap the virus?
Yes, the filter itself will be very deadly for the COVID-19 virus. The filter itself is an air filter, a special kind of HEPA filter. The problem with the other filters on the market today is that they only trap the mold, bacteria and viruses, but they don’t kill them. This is especially true and dangerous with COVID-19, because COVID-19 can live for up to five days. However, our filter with graphene incorporated makes the filter more effective by deactivating the virus.
CEOCFO: Is there a product on the market today with your special graphene incorporated filter, and if so, where can people purchase it?
Yes, we do have an air filtration product on the market today, and it is sold on Amazon. Right now what we are offering as a product is a device that is the size of a file cabinet which pumps air through a HEPA filter and filters
out the nasty germs and viruses.
CEOCFO: Your Graphene Laboratories Inc. subsidiary recently licensed our IP to a pharma company. Would
you tell about that and what it means for you?
Interestingly enough, this particular project has nothing to do with graphene. We have an excellent team
of scientists and they came to me with an idea to help a pharma company that was developing a drug, but had a problem
making this drug. Drugs are made out of building blocks, usually some other chemicals. Our scientists found a way to
make one of the building blocks very efficiently. All of a sudden, this drug had some development and we just happened
to be the only people that knew a good way to make this building block. The drug is designed to treat certain pulmonary
conditions including Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF).
CEOCFO: How many subsidiaries do you have and would you tell us about some of the other
accomplishment of your subsidiaries?
The way this company is meant to be from the start is that we have a variety of scientific materials and scientific products. Our goal is to commercialize graphene, to sell graphene products to people who know nothing about
graphene and really do not want to know, but they just want to enjoy using products made out of graphene; it will be
useful for them. The way it works is we have this company Graphene Laboratories and we run an online store called Graphene Supermarkets where we work with scientists that have a lot of ideas.
There are a lot of complications for graphene and it is proven scientifically that the applications really work, so they do not contradict the laws of nature. The next step is to find an application that not only works but is also commercially
viable, can be done with reasonable money, and can successfully compete with existing materials, which probably do not
perform as well as graphene but are less expensive because they have been around for a while. That is how this business
operates. Graphene Laboratories, which kind of incubates a lot of projects, working with scientists, researchers, and
companies, helping them to find a way to use graphene.
Originally, we implemented this idea when 3D printing was emerging and we thought that graphene can help to make a
very good 3D printing material. Therefore, we developed a conductive polymer for 3D printing. That is how we got
another subsidiary, Graphene 3D Lab.
CEOCFO: You changed your name from Graphene 3D Lab Inc. back in January of this year. What was the
reason and purpose of the name change?
This is because originally we were pushing this 3D printing material but there was other products. This
3D printing materials is an excellent product and we are planning to sell it more but this is not the only one and it is not
going to take the company where we would like to be. There are other products, for example we are making the
composite materials for marine applications and we would like to commercialize them as well. We are also making these
conductive glues / conductive adhesives. In the beginning it was about 3D printing, but now we have more projects and
3D printing is important but not the most important one. To reflect this change, we rebranded and renamed the
CEOCFO: How are the actual products developed and brought to market. Are some of these products
developed, manufactured and marketed through G6 Materials or is everything done through partnering? What is your business model?
Absolutely and the air filter is a very good example of that. We are a chemical company that would like
to make graphene or graphene solutions and some sort of compounds, as graphene is tough to make. We would like to
insert ourselves in the other technological processes, for example making air filters. We do not really want to make our
filters ourselves or assemble the units and deal with all the electronics, fans and things like that. Therefore, we would
have to partner. We want to focus on where our expertise is.
Our strategy as a company is that we are trying to find the way of least resistance. In addition, as with the air filtration
unit, we make sure that in the process of manufacturing this air filtration system, our intervention is minimal, or does not
add cost to the product too much. The same is true when doing the marine composites. We came up with a solution
which is an additive so they are doing it the way they usually do. They are building the boats the way they usually do, but
at some point they just use our additives, but we are trying to keep it to a minimum. Graphene cannot really help to save
money. Graphene products are going to be more expensive than non-graphene products. It is just going to be a better
product and we are just trying to keep the price addition to a minimum.
CEOCFO: Are you looking for potential investors and are you looking to raise funds?
We are constantly looking to raise funds. This is because we would like to be conservative in a sense that we do not like to raise excessive amounts of funds, just to keep the dilution for previous investors to a minimum. Instead
of raising a big chunk of money we raised just enough to get us to the next step. We have this idea of air purifiers with
graphene and we raised some money and now we are at a certain step of commercialization. We are going to raise it to
another step and finalize this product.
CEOCFO: In closing, what gives you that competitive edge in the industry and why should investors be interested in G6 Materials Corp?
First of all, we have been around for quite a while already. We were one of the first companies working
with graphene. Since then, we got a huge customer database and we have more than 12,000 customers, which includes
a lot of companies from the Fortune 500 list and probably almost all the universities. We are working on the bleeding
edge of science and filling the gap between scientific development and commercialization. Why should potential investors
invest? Once we are able to connect the dots with these products, our company will undergo a tremendous development
and see explosive growth.
