Advanced materials engineering group Versarien has announced an agreement with a "world leading provider of aero engines and components, including avionics, electrical power and mechanical systems for aircraft".
The agreement will see Versarien and its new unnamed partner collaborate on research and development projects using Versarien's proprietary Nanene few layer graphene nano-platelets in base materials and sensory devices used in a variety of products in the aerospace and aero engineering sectors.
Versarien's Chief Executive Neill Ricketts commented: "We are delighted to be working on our second major collaboration in the aerospace sector with a world leading company.
"Our high quality graphene has a variety of potential uses in the aerospace and aero engineering field. From its incorporation in structures to enhance material strength, reduce weight and improve thermal radiation properties, through to utilizing the electrical conductivity properties of graphene in sensory devices, the opportunities are enormous. We will be working with this new partner across their numerous areas of expertise to maximize the benefits that graphene can bring.
He added: "We continue to work hard with our other collaboration partners to bring graphene enhanced products to market and continue to see substantial interest from other companies across the world who wish to work with Versarien."
