Haydale Graphene Industries Plc is the holding company for Haydale Limited, Haydale Composite Solutions Limited and Haydale Technologies (Korea) Co., Limited.
Haydale Limited, housed in a purpose built facility for processing and handling nano-materials with an R&D laboratory, is facilitating the application of graphenes and other nano-materials in fields such as inks, sensors, energy storage, photovoltaics, composites, paints and coatings. Haydale has developed a patented proprietary scalable plasma process to functionalise graphene and other nanomaterials.
Haydale Composite Solutions Limited (HCS) specialises in the design, development and commercialisation of advanced polymer composite materials on a global basis.
Haydale Technologies (Korea) Co., Ltd, is located in Seoul. This is currently a sales and marketing office managing companies Haydale are working with and who are sampling Haydale functionalised materials.
Haydale supplies graphene enhanced materials direct to customers and through their marketing and distribution partners InVentures (USA) and planarTECH (Far East). R&D materials are available through INSCX™ and the specialist web based supplier, Goodfellow.
The latest Haydale graphene news:
Haydale announced that it has raised £5.1 million (almost $7 million USD) in an oversubscribed share offer.
The company says that the new funds will be used to fund general working capital needs of the business, support the scaling up of manufacturing capacity and drive forward product rollout into the US market.
Haydale has announced that, following its announcement of positive prototype testing on 3rd March 2020, its range of advanced wearable technology - integrated into garments for elite athletes - was used in Tokyo by British athletes, including top medal winning athletes.
The garments generate heat using Haydale's printed functionalized graphene ink and incorporate electronic circuitry to produce temperature regulated panels. The plan is to use them at future international competitions, and subsequently to make them available commercially to other professional sports.
Haydale has filed a joint patent with Airbus which covers the intellectual property jointly generated by Haydale and Airbus under the multi-party NATEP-supported Graphene Composites Evaluated in Lightning Strike Project, or GraCELS-2.
The group said that GraCELS-2 was designed to confirm that the 'incorporation of functionalized graphene/2D fillers could produce the next iteration of composite materials with significantly improved lightning strike performance compared to existing current carbon/epoxy systems alleviating the need for copper mesh'.
Haydale has announced that further to a memorandum of understanding signed on 11 November 2020, it has now signed a Collaboration Agreement with ProMake Limited with respect to the fulfilment of Promake's commitments under the Public Health England ("PHE") National Microbiology Framework.
In line with the UK Government's aim to supply fast turnaround tests in its fight against Covid-19, PHE announced a new National Microbiology Framework in November 2020. There were four discrete lots within this framework and ProMake tendered for Lot 2 and Lot 4.
The graphene industry seems to be flourishing, at least when looking at the valuations of public companies. As we reported earlier this year, graphene stocks have risen nicely towards the end of 2020, and the trend continues in 2021 for most companies.
The total market value of graphene companies now reaches $1.8 billion USD for the 13 leading graphene public companies we track. It is important to note that not all this value is directly related to graphene - some of the companies have other activities, mainly graphite mining and supply. But for all these companies, graphene is a major part of the business, and most of the companies are pure-play graphene companies.
