Home > Press > Graphene Supermarket to offer HDPlas™ by Haydale, a High-Performance Graphene Material

Abstract:
Haydale and Graphene Laboratories, Inc. are pleased to announce that the HDPlas™ range of novel high-performance graphene materials will be offered by the leading source of graphene materials, the Graphene Supermarket. HDPlas™ Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNP) are designed to enhance product performance when compared to non-functionalised materials; they are suitable for numerous applications including resins, epoxies and polymer composites.

Graphene Supermarket to offer HDPlas™ by Haydale, a High-Performance Graphene Material

South Wales, UK, and New York, NY | Posted on April 10th, 2014

Haydale has technology enabling the commercialisation of graphene via its plasma functionalisation process. HDPlas™ GNP are functionalised through a proprietary plasma process which does not use wet chemistry and allows the material structures to be maintained and un-damaged. The process can clean up material impurities inherent in the raw material and may even repair defects in the base material. The process can functionalise with a range of standard and exotic chemical groups, allowing Haydale to match a product with the most appropriate functionalisation to meet customer specifications.

The non-exclusive agreement marks Haydale's intent in increasing its presence in the US R&D market, and will see the HDPlas™ range of functionalised GNP made available for R&D customers via the Graphene Supermarket website, initially in quantities of up to 1kg. Graphene Laboratories Inc. will market HDPlas™ products for sale in the United States, Canada and Russia. The Graphene Supermarket is a leading source of graphene and nano carbon products worldwide.

Ray Gibbs, CEO at Haydale, said: "We have witnessed the progress Graphene Labs has made in getting high quality graphene related research and development material into the market - their sales, marketing and technical support in this sector is excellent. Haydale, as a high quality functionalisation specialist with a range of GNP, was looking for an increased presence, particularly in the USA. The additional sales reach provided by Graphene Labs for our GNP materials is an obvious fit. Not only were we looking for a route to market in the USA that had technical back up locally, but also the ability to generate further leads from R&D activities. It is our ability to functionalise the GNP to customer's specific requirements which, we believe, uniquely positions us in the market for graphene products. We are looking forward to working closely with Elena and the team to develop and deliver commercial value added graphene products into the USA."

Elena Polyakova, CEO of Graphene Laboratories, added:

"Customers of the Graphene Supermarket have long been enquiring about GNP materials optimised for screen and other printing applications. Our distribution of Haydale's HDPlas™ enables us to meet customer demand with a reliable product. We have been very pleased with our results using Haydale's materials, and I am confident that our customers will feel the exact same way."

About Haydale
Haydale is a global leader in facilitating the commercial application of graphenes. As an enabling technology, Haydale by working with both raw material suppliers and product manufacturers can provide a rapid and highly cost efficient method of supplying tailored solutions to enhance an application.

Haydale has patents pending for a low temperature plasma (under 100 deg C) process that overcomes a key barrier to the functionalisation of large scale production of Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNP) and Carbon Nanotubes (CNT). The process can functionalise with a range of standard and exotic chemical groups (fluorine is one such example), where the amount of chemicals can be tailored to the customer needs. Good dispersion optimises the properties and performance and ensures it delivers as specified.

In particular the Haydale plasma functionalisation process is capable of being tailored to produce a wide range of surface modifications, including chemical groups suitable for bonding or repelling specific chemicals. This process will substantially improve compatibility between the nanomaterials and any matrix or binder material.

The Haydale plasma process does not use wet chemistry, neither does it damage the material being processed, rather it can clean up impurities inherent in the raw material and may even repair some of the defects in the base material. The technology is a low energy user and most importantly environmentally friendly. The Haydale method is an enabling technology where working with a raw material producer can add value to the base product and tailor the outputs to meet the target applications of the end user.

Now housed in a new facility for processing and handling nanomaterials with a lab facility, Haydale combined with a scalable technology, is facilitating the application of graphenes and other nanomaterials in fields such as inks, sensors, energy storage, photovoltaics, composites, paints and coatings.

About Graphene

Graphene is a form of carbon that exists as a sheet, one atom thick with its atoms arranged into a two-dimensional honeycomb structure. It is at least 100 times stronger than steel; conducts electricity better than copper and has been suggested as a possible replacement for silicon in electronics.
