The Product Excellence HVAC Award is focused on new technology or re-application of existing technology in product manufacture that demonstrate innovation and fitness for purpose for the air conditioning, refrigeration and building services sector.

ARBS’s website described the Company’s THERMAL-XR® COATING SYSTEM as “distinguishing itself in the HVAC & R industry by its innovative approach to enhancing the thermal conductivity of both new and corroded heat exchange surfaces. This system not only coats and protects these surfaces but also restores their eroded thermal efficiency. By integrating the physics of GMG Graphene, the THERMAL-XR® process not only improves the heat transfer rate but also significantly reduces power consumption, marking a substantial advance in efficiency. Additionally, the THERMAL-XR RESTORE®, Powered by GMG Graphene, offers protection against accelerated corrosion for various types of coils, thereby prolonging equipment life and further reducing energy costs.”

This collaborative national ARBS Awards initiative is fully endorsed by the major HVAC&R industry associations:

  • AIRAH – Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning & Heating
  • AMCA – Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors Association
  • AREMA – Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Equipment Manufacturers Association
  • ARWA – Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Wholesalers Association
  • CIBSE – Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (ANZ)
  • RACCA – Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Contractors Association

GMG’s Managing Director and CEO, Craig Nicol, commented: “This national industry award is really exciting as it shows further progress GMG is making with THERMAL-XR® within the HVAC-R industry. We continue to see various types of industries trialling our product including in the after-market air conditioning, data centres, air conditioner manufacturers, personal electronics, truck and train manufacturers and industrial facilities such as LNG plants.”

GMG’s Chairman and Director, Jack Perkowski, commented: “THERMAL-XR® is an exciting prospect for the Company in many applications and markets, and it is gratifying to see the Company receiving recognition for this through such national industry awards.”

About THERMAL-XR® powered by GMG Graphene:

THERMAL-XR® COATING SYSTEM is a unique method of improving the conductivity of corroded heat exchange surfaces and improving and maintaining the performance of new units at peak levels. The process coats and protects heat exchange surfaces while improving and rebuilding the lost corroded thermal conductivity and increasing the heat transfer rate by leveraging the physics of GMG Graphene, resulting in an efficiency improvement and a potential power reduction.


About GMG

GMG is a clean-technology company which seeks to offer energy saving and energy storage solutions, enabled by graphene, including that manufactured in-house via a proprietary production process. GMG has developed a proprietary production process to decompose natural gas (i.e. methane) into its elements, carbon (as graphene), hydrogen and some residual hydrocarbon gases. This process produces high quality, low cost, scalable, ‘tuneable’ and low/no contaminant graphene suitable for use in clean-technology and other applications.

The Company’s present focus is to de-risk and develop commercial scale-up capabilities, and secure market applications. In the energy savings segment, GMG has focused on graphene enhanced heating, ventilation and air conditioning (“HVAC-R”) coating (or energy-saving coating), lubricants and fluids.

In the energy storage segment, GMG and the University of Queensland are working collaboratively with financial support from the Australian Government to progress R&D and commercialization of graphene aluminium-ion batteries (“G+AI Batteries”).

GMG’s 4 critical business objectives are:

  1. Produce Graphene and improve/scale cell production processes
  2. Build Revenue from Energy Savings Products
  3. Develop Next-Generation Battery
  4. Develop Supply Chain, Partners & Project Execution Capability
