UK-based Graft Polymer has joined a consortium led by the Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences relating to the GrinShield Project Twinning program for new graphene-based composites in electromagnetic interference shielding. The initiative, supported by French, German and Slovenian teams, was formed in response to the growing demand for materials that can mitigate the effects of electromagnetic waves (EWs).
Graft Polymer will contribute its GRAFTALLOY MP-UHMWPE and NANO graphene emulsions to the project. These materials will undergo rigorous testing procedures by the institute, culminating in a joint research and development report due for completion in 2025.
Graft Polymer founder and managing director, Victor Bolduev, commented: "This agreement is further acknowledgement of our compelling product innovation and R&D capabilities, and our success in forging joint development programmes through customer mandates at the forefront of polymer evolution in new markets."
On behalf of the Vinca Institute, professor Snezana Pajovic added: "Graft Polymer's proposition and competitive advantage in innovating and manufacturing unique products in the polymers market are truly impressive and we look forward to working with them on this pivotal project".
