Australian pool shell maker Aquatic Leisure Technologies (ALT) has entered into an exclusive two-year sales agreement with First Graphene to supply graphene powder to incorporate into their fiberglass pool shells. 

The agreement, which will supply 2.5 tons to the poolmaker annually, will be used in ALT pools sold in Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S. The companies have spent the last two years testing and perfecting the integration of First Graphene’s PureGraph material into the pool shells. The companies say the graphene-enhanced shells exhibit more strength, flexibility, and water and chemical resistance than standard fiberglass pool shells.

“The execution of this supply agreement represents one of several anticipated for 2020,” says Craig McGuckin, First Graphene managing director. “We are pleased to have worked with Aquatic Leisure Technologies to develop a unique range of fibreglass swimming pools for local and export markets. Graphene is helping our customers to develop new products not previously seen with non-graphene technologies.

Lynley Papineau, ALT managing director, says the integration of graphene into pool shells marks “the beginning of a new era for pre-moulded fibreglass swimming pools.”
