Haydale Create Dedicated Graphene Inks Manufacturing Capability

Haydale has a new 230m2 manufacturing area at its South Wales, UK, facility to keep up with rapidly growing demand for graphene inks.

According to Haydale, its graphene inks are manufactured using plasma functionalised HDPlas Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNPs) to deliver performance benefits including; metal-free, electrical conductivity, flexibility, and durability. Validated for consistency by the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC), Haydale graphene ink is formulated to be ready-to-use and can also be customised for individual applications. Its patented HDPlas plasma process allows it to be used with a range of different raw graphene materials and to add the chemical functionalisation to meet desired performance for a wide range of specific applications.

Haydales says that the development of graphene inks with performance better than normal carbon based inks has enabled a growing number of commercial applications of graphene's to take place. Applications that were previously only thought possible are now immediately accessible with Haydale HDPlas graphene inks. It has been optimised for ideal viscosity and solid contents ensuring excellent coverage and exceptional conductivity.

Haydale's graphene based inks were first announced at the Printed Electronics US conference. Since then, Haydale has been working in close collaboration with specialist ink manufacturers and development partners to rapidly improve ink formulations, enhance conductivity performance and produce optimised commercial graphene-based products.
