Haydale Expands Elastomer Capability

Posted By Terrance Barkan, Thursday, August 16, 2018

 

Haydale, the global advanced materials group, has announced that it has completed the installation and commissioning of a two-roll lab mill at its site in Loughborough, UK. 

 

This new investment will allow Haydale to compound nanomaterials into a range of elastomers which will support customers interested in using nanomaterials in their elastomeric products for a range of property improvements, such as thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and increased mechanical performance.

 

The new elastomer mixing capability sits alongside the current elastomer moulding and testing facilities that are already on site at Haydale in Loughborough, UK, thereby bringing in-house the facility for Haydale to serve customer requirements for nanomaterial enhanced elastomer development.

 

Areas Haydale is currently working on with elastomers are: 

  • Automotive tyres. 
  • Auto, rail and marine for antivibration mounts. 
  • Seals and gaskets. 
  • Medical devices. 
  • Latex gloves. 

Keith Broadbent, Haydale Managing Director Composites, said: “We are really pleased to be able to offer this additional capability from our Loughborough site and look forward to working more closely with our existing, and new, elastomer customers.” 

 

Ray Gibbs, Haydale CEO, said: “This market-led improvement to our facility shows how Haydale is responding to the needs of its customers.”

The World’s Largest Graphene Community Adds Tenth Corporate Member

Posted By Terrance Barkan, Monday, July 31, 2017

The efforts of The Graphene Council in providing information to the graphene community receives strong corporate support. 

 

The Graphene Council, the largest member-driven community in the world focused on graphene research and commercialization, has reached a key milestone by adding its tenth corporate member bolstering its efforts in representing and providing information to the graphene community. 

 

The newest members, UK-based Haydale Graphene Industries  and Australia-based Talga Resources, join an international group of leading graphene companies that includes Montreal-based NanoXplore, Australia-based Imagine Intelligent Materials (Imagine IM), UK-based Applied Graphene Materials, Norway-based CealTech AS,   UK-based William Blythe, Hong Kong-based Perfect Right Limited (Oovao Powers) and Australian First Graphite. In addition the US-based association SPIE—the International Society for Optics and Photonics has also seen value in becoming a Corporate Member and taking advantage of up-to-date market intelligence and other benefits.

 

Representing graphene producers on four continents, these leading companies and association recognize the value of sharing and disseminating information across an open platform where the views and issues surrounding graphene research and commercialization can be advanced.

 

“Partnering with other organizations to further the sharing of information and enhancing the discussion around technologies not only helps SPIE meet its charter but, more importantly, enables the advancement of research, science, engineering and practical applications in these technologies,” said Robert F. Hainsey, Ph.D., the Director of Science and Technology for SPIE.

 

Established in late 2013, The Graphene Council quickly developed the largest LinkedIn group in the field of graphene and an even larger private community with 8,500 members. It has significantly expanded its reach and impact through original market survey reports and by providing original content in newsletters, articles and blogs.

 

One of the first providers of online webinars dedicated to the commercial issues surrounding graphene, The Graphene Council has also researched and published one of the most extensive surveys of companies producing graphene on the status of commercialization and highlighting major issues. This survey has also served as a key document in government-led analysis of the graphene market.

 

The Graphene Council is also the sole provider of the 2017 Bulk Graphene Pricing Report, the most up-to-date and detailed analysis of how graphene can compete in application areas that includes composites, thermo plastics, 3D manufacturing, rubber and plastics, cement, lubricants and many others.  

 

The Graphene Council has also partnered with Springer Nature publications to publish the first academic journal dedicated to applied graphene research and analysis, The Graphene Technology Journalthe first full issue will be published in September 2017.

 

As a formal member of the ISO/ANSI TC 229 Nanotechnology Standards Development Group as well as the IEC TC 113 Nano-Electrotechnologies, the Graphene Council is at the forefront of the development of graphene standards that will benefit graphene suppliers, buyers and users.
