Haydale were pleased to attend the official opening of the £60 million Masdar Building by His Royal Highness, The Duke of York, on 10 December, which houses the GEIC at the University of Manchester, UK, of which Haydale is a Tier One partner.
The recently supplied Haydale functionalisation plasma reactor was a prominent feature at the event where it will be available to GEIC members, including the National Physical Laboratory, to develop the science of functionalisation and pioneer new advanced materials development.
Haydale’s exhibition stand featured many products enhanced with Haydale’s functionalised graphenes currently being sold in the market, including biomedical sensors, heat sensors, printed inks, graphene enhanced pre-impregnated carbon fibre composites and mould tooling, plus its newly launched anti-counterfeit technology, PATit. Haydale generated over £1.0 million of sales from its graphene enhanced products and services in its last financial year.
Additionally, Haydale’s functionalised graphenes were on display throughout the exhibition by some of its customers, including:
Other new innovative concepts on display incorporating or expecting to incorporate Haydale’s graphene products included:
In addition, Haydale and GEIC applications engineers are collaborating with two of Haydale’s existing customers:
David Banks, Interim Executive Chairman at Haydale, said, “I would like to congratulate the University of Manchester on the official opening of the Masdar Building. It was an honour to attend this prestigious event and it was fantastic to see an array of Haydale’s technologies featured within the various products that were on display in the exhibition. It is important that Haydale’s technology is advancing the industry and I look forward to Haydale continuing to work with the GEIC and its collaboration partners to accelerate the commercialisation of graphene.”
