March 30th, 2023 Vancouver, BC – Reflex Advanced Materials Corp. (CSE:RFLX) (OTC: RFLXF) (FWB: HF2) (“Reflex” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that it has agreed to enter into a subscription agreement and agreed to make a strategic investment in Bio Graphene Solutions Inc. (“BGS”). BGS is a private nanotechnology company that specializes in the production of high-quality graphene. As part of the strategic investment into BGS, Reflex expects to benefit by collaborating with BGS on potential cross-development projects that include exploring downstream applications that compliment any graphite material sourced from the Company’s Ruby Graphite project.
Graphene is an allotrope of carbon and commonly defined as ten carbon-layers or less. As a performance additive, graphene has the ability to dramatically improve the properties of various end-materials that include strength, conductivity, flexibility, and permeability in different products and applications. The versatility of graphene enables superior results and value creation in a range of commodity-based and specialized industries, from asphalt, concrete, and plastics, to electronics, biomedical, and energy storage.
BGS has developed a proprietary process for producing high-quality and cost-effective graphene from 100% organic source materials via a scalable cleantech production process – making it an attractive partner for companies looking to incorporate nanotechnology into their portfolio of products and existing supply chain. BGS has already demonstrated significant value in their technology as being one of the first companies to successfully introduce graphene as a liquid admixture for use in ready-mix commercial concrete – reducing the need for cement by more than 15% in select commercial mix designs. BGS is also working with notable product development partners in various industries who are exploring utilizing graphene to complement existing technologies for other high-value applications.
“We are pleased to be making a strategic investment into BGS, who has developed a graphene production process that’s scalable, cost-efficient, and most importantly, has the highest level of product consistency and quality control through complete process controllability.” said Paul Gorman, CEO of Reflex. “With graphene becoming a commercialized super material, in well-established industries, the opportunity is a complimentary fit to our supply chain solution goals.”
David Fisher, CEO & Co-Founder of BGS commented “We are pleased to have Reflex Advanced Materials as a strategic partner. Our high-quality graphene has significant versatility and compliments Reflex’s asset portfolio and how we can drive further value creation in advanced materials. Together, we will aim to create market-ready solutions for high-value applications and we look forward to working further with the Reflex team.”
