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 has announced that it has secured £1 million of new working capital for the Group through a combination a new £750,000 16-month loan facility from the Development Bank of Wales (DBW) and the issue of £250,000 of new equity via a subscription with the Company.
The Company is to enter into a new secured working capital loan from the DBW of £750,000 which is to be repaid monthly on or before April 2020. The Loan is expected to be drawn down in January and will be used by the Group for general working capital purposes. The Company has also raised £250,000 through the issue shares.
Haydale Graphene Industries is to partner with Wheelsure Holdings to work on a graphene pressure sensor. The project will begin in January and will involve production of a smart graphene pressure sensor targeting the fastener market.
The sensor will integrate Haydale's graphene sensor technology and safety product developer Wheelsure's failsafe locking device. Both parties entered into a commission-based sales arrangement , under which Haydale will introduce the product to customers.
“GRAPHOSITE” is a 30-month project which started on the 1st August 2018. Its main objective is to develop a Graphene Sensor for Defect Detection and Predictive Maintenance in Composite Materials, for use as a highly efficient, more convenient composite monitoring tool.
This project has been supported by the Innovate UK (£1.3 Million Grant-Project Ref. 104266) and has the participation of 6 Partners: Advise-Deta (project coordinator), DZP Technologies, Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology, Haydale Composite Solutions and TWI.
Haydale has announced that through its Taiwanese operation, Haydale Technologies Taiwan, it has started to supply commercial quantities of its functionalized graphene ink to a major print house in Taiwan. The graphene ink is used to print test strips in the self-diagnostic biomedical sensor device market for diabetes monitoring. Haydale believes its graphene ink is the first of its kind being used in volume in this market.
Following over a year of market testing, evaluation and gaining regulatory approvals, including extensive production quantity in-line testing, HTW has now started to deliver its graphene screen printed inks as part of a recent 100kg order secured from a leading Taiwanese printer. Haydale's graphene ink is reportedly proving to be a high quality, more stable, and consistent product, replacing the established graphite and carbon inks used extensively in producing the test strips for this significant global market.
In February 2018, Haydale, the University of Swansea and Wheelsure entered a collaboration to develop intelligent systems for transport and industrial applications using Haydale's graphene ink sensor technology, in order to extend Wheelsure's product range. Now, Haydale has confirmed that The University of Manchester's Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre ("GEIC") is set to join this collaboration.
The project aims to develop an intelligent new product pairing Haydale's functionalized graphene sensor technology with Wheelsure's failsafe locking solution. The sensor will be developed by applications engineers at the GEIC using Haydale's functionalised graphene. The project is expected to be showcased at the official opening of the GEIC in December 2018.
