Versarien has announced a collaboration with US-based Flux Footwear to supply graphene-enhanced elastomers for an improved model of Flux’s ‘Adapt’ shoe. The elastomers are to be used in an improved model of flux's 'Adapt' model.
The elastomer technology has been developed by Versarien’s in-house technology teams at the University of Manchester and University of Cambridge as part of the GSCALE project and has the potential for multiple elastomer applications.
Under the terms of the partnership with Flux, the ‘Adapt’ barefoot athleisure model has been enhanced with Versarien’s Graphene-Wear technology, following research and testing to improve the rubber outsole, augmenting the shoe’s mechanical and physical properties.
Flux will be launching the AdaptMid model in autumn/winter 2022.
Versarien chief executive, Neill Ricketts, said: As more products enhanced using Versarien technology are coming to market, there is now a definite shift within the company towards commercialization.
