Versarien has announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Bromley Technologies to collaborate on the development of graphene-enhanced carbon fibre products using Versarien’s graphene nano platelets. The initial focus is expected to be on products in the elite sports area, where the early adoption of new technology to gain a performance advantage is common.
Bromley Technologies is focussed on developing and marketing innovative products and technologies, namely in the action sports domain. Bromley Technologies has particular expertise in carbon fibre composite structures and it is intended that Versarien will collaborate in the design and testing of a wide variety of graphene-enhanced composite structures, using Versarien’s patented process. In April 2016, Versarien entered an agreement with WMG to develop graphene-enhanced batteries and supercapacitors. In March 2016, Versarien announced that it has teamed up with E3D Online Ltd, a 3D printing specialist, to carry out initial trials using graphene.
