Four-year supply agreement with global industrial manufacturer
Haydale Graphene Industries plc (AIM: HAYD), the global nanomaterials group, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Advanced Composite Materials LLC, ("ACM"), has entered into a four-year agreement ("the Agreement") to supply Silicon Carbide ("SiC") micro-fibre to a global industrial manufacturer of tooling and wear-resistant solutions ("the Customer"). This sole supply Agreement has a potential sales value of over US$2.6 million over the initial four year term with first orders to be delivered in the final quarter of this financial year. The Agreement has a minimum annual order quantity which the Board expects will equate to an average annual revenue of approximately US$600,000 (subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement being met).
Following a period of stringent testing, the Haydale SiC fibre has been approved for use in the production of SiC whisker reinforced (hard edged) cutting tools. There is considerable demand for SiC whisker reinforced cutting tools which are used extensively across a range of industries and more specifically, for the production, of land based turbines and jet engine fan blades. This Agreement marks a significant step forward for ACM, which is also now proactively selling Haydale's range of graphene enhanced composites, 3D printing filaments and additives into the North American market. ACM was acquired by Haydale in September 2016.
Commenting on the agreement, Ray Gibbs, CEO of Haydale, said: "We took the decision last year to invest in the USA through Haydale Technologies' acquisition of a speciality materials business, ACM. We are delighted with the integration of ACM within the Group and especially the volume of samples of graphene, silicon carbide and a hybrid combination of both we have shipped to major US companies as well as certain targets in the Far East. Feedback has been very encouraging and positive. Our focus is to support the co-development of new materials with these companies and bring them to market."
Commenting on the Agreement, Trevor Rudderham, CEO of Haydale Technologies, Inc. said: "We have made great progress over the past four months since our acquisition of ACM. We have solidified existing contracts and have now started winning new sales accounts such as this one asking for deliveries in the next quarter. This demonstrates our focus on building long term business partnerships with best in class corporations. As we continue to integrate all of the products and services Haydale offers into the US, we are confident of achieving continued success."
Further terms of the Agreement
The Agreement contains customary termination provisions including in the event that the customer ceases production of whisker reinforced ceramics, the customer shall have the right to terminate the Agreement and 50 per cent. of the agreed price for the annual minimum order quantity for the remainder of the four year initial term would remain payable to ACM. The Agreement may also be renewed for an additional two year period subsequent to expiry of the initial four year term.|
The aileron can be seen on Haydale’s stand number M13 in Hall 5a at JEC World 2017 from March 14 - 16. Haydale Composite Solutions staff will be available to discuss this new technology and explain how it can be applied across a range of products.
|There was an interesting press release from Haydale today (see details below)
The list of partners on this project is quite impressive and includes Airbus UK, BAE Systems and Cobham.
I suspect the use of Graphene composites for aerospace is still a few years away, but this work probably brings the day when they can be used a bit closer. The regulatory authorities are more likely to be persuaded by safety advantages (such as this example) rather than any economic advantages, such as reduced fuel bills for the airlines.
Graphene-Enhanced Composite Materials Improve
Lightning Strike Performance
Haydale Composite Solutions are pleased to announce the production of graphene enhanced electrically-conductive carbon fibre-reinforced composite materials with improved resistance to damage from a severe lightning-strike event.
Carbon fibre-reinforced composite materials, as used in many aerospace structures and components, are vulnerable to damage from lightning strikes. However, the addition of functionalised nano materials to the epoxy resin through the use of Haydale’s patented plasma functionalisation process, HDPlas™, has been demonstrated to significantly improve the electrical conductivity of the epoxy resin which allows the laminate to dissipate the energy of the lightning strike throughout the structure thereby reducing the localised heating which causes damage in a lightning strike event. Importantly, these improvements have been achieved without any major issues with existing manufacturing processes.
The mechanical properties of the modified material have been evaluated and it has been shown that the properties are maintained or improved by the addition of specific nano particulates. Particular attention has been paid to the matrix dominated properties such as in-plane and inter-laminar shear. Improvements of 16% - 20% have been recorded in the measured modulus whilst maintaining the strength of the material.
A comparison has been made between modified and unmodified panels subjected to direct lightning-strike events and it has been demonstrated that severe back-face damage and punch-through can be eliminated through the use of these additives as can be seen in the following images.
This work has been conducted as part of the NATEP-supported GraCELS Project, a collaborative research project involving Haydale Composite Solutions, Airbus UK, BAE Systems, Cobham Technical Services and SHD Composites.
The HDPlas™ graphene-modified material has been used to manufacture an aileron inspired by a design from Airbus for their Eco-Flyer aircraft. The aileron is nearly 4m in length and uses a novel design and manufacturing approach....continued|

UK-based Haydale has announced a collaboration agreement with Everpower International Holdings, a New York-based investment company engaged in investing in emerging technologies and their integration into China. Everpower has existing graphene interests in China, and as a first step it has agreed to make a strategic investment in Haydale of £3.26 million to acquire a 9.9% of Haydale. This investment was done through Everpower's subsidiary Fu Xing New Materials Development (Heze).
|The ShareSoc investor seminar date (where Ray Gibbs will be presenting on behalf of Haydale) has shifted slightly:
It now looks like it will be on 11th April at Capita Asset Services (instead of 12 April at finnCap), so make a note in your diaries
It's free to attend for ShareSoc members and there is a small charge for non-members to cover the costs of refreshments afterwards.|
|It isn't that. I have supported Haydale from 80p. Big believer in Nanotech. A complacent management is my gripe. Now all companies except for VRS are stagnant or going down. Something is wrong.|
|Childish possibly, but accurate definitely. You don't need to sledge Haydale to promote Versarien - or maybe you do?|
|>>>>>Good luck with your investment in Versarien pete.
I will not respond in any depth to your the comment regarding Haydale being a subsidiary co of Huntsman as it's obviously complete and utter b*ll*cks|
|Thanks for sharing your wise investment tips with us. Very kind.|
|It appears that Haydale is practically a subsidiary co of Huntsman Advanced Materials. If not then very reliant. A great step for Haydale but what does it do to the share. The company chugs along with no ambition nor dividend. Never very dynamic with news or progress we'll just keep steady in a £1.60 to £2.00 range.
I wrote this awhile ago And sold out. A pity because Nano is a future.
I switched my money in VRS Versarien which is now 28% up on my initial investment.
It has changed to a company who knows what nano potential is about.|
|Coming back to the subscription price of 1.70 as is so often the case in these funding issuences. However, I don't imagine the recent subscriber has any intention of selling any time soon and this looks like the thin end of the wedge for a complete takeover by somebody.|
|Anybody got an explanation for today's drop.MW|
|Directors talk interview with Ray Gibbs (from Friday) on the collaboration agreement with Everpower, sounds good to me:
As an aside and not wishing to debate this with superg (or anyone else for that matter), I am not unduly concerned with the Chinese involvement, they only have observer status for BOD meetings (which is quite normal for any strategic investor with a substantial stake in a company). Should the Chinese wish to find out about Haydale's (or any other company's) IP, the easiest way for them to do it is to look at the published patents and patent applications, all of which are in the public domain.|
FFS don't get into bed with the Chinese they will steal the IP and kill you off. Don't be a mug this is what they do.
Not here for a spat Timbo I know he reads here and that's it from me on this thread.|
|I have said all I want to say in response to superg's views on Haydale over on the Versarien thread
If superg does wish to continue with repetitive trolling on this thread I will respond again on his Versarien thread.
I should thank escapetohome for drawing my attention to superg's past record on ADVFN
If I do need to respond again to trolling, I suspect this list will prove to be quite useful.
Hopefully we can now draw a line under all of this and look forward to a successful year for both Haydale and Versarian.|
Ok, if you want to carry on with this, would you mind if I respond to you a bit later on then, over on your Versarien thread, using a nice big size 16 font (or shall I use size 24) just to reinforce my points?|
Your thread and if your are happy for readers to think all GNPs need functionalisation then that's up to you.
Threads are for info sharing and I'be told you VRS say they have not need to functionalise graphene in recent uses.
That does not mean all procedures do not need to functionalise. It could be their product is poor and needs adjustment to get it performing better.
Neither will I say that no GNPs need functionalisation even when high quality to start as they may need adjustment to suit a particular resin.
What I'm saying is in the carbon fibre example, PEEK and others samples in the VRS case no functionalisation was needed. That is obviously at odds with what you believe and Haydale profess as general comment about the GNP market.|
I liked Haydale a lot when I first read about them but the more I read the more desperate and BS like they become.
Initially I thought Haydale would be the lead and now I know why you sound nervous. It's because the whole AIM admission document is about all GNPs will need functionlisation that's what the business was based on and the sell of it. In other words everyone that can't functionalise would have to go through companies like them. It's untrue but obviously you may think otherwise.
Going through the admission document I spotted 3D labs and the graphene supermarket where Haydale have product listed on sale.
Here is the problem with that
Note the <50nm and 20m2 per gram. That puts it around the 125 layer mark.
It's not graphene at all it's graphite.
There is no way 125 layer GNPs will help with mechanical strength. The problem is some may buy it for that and find there is no gain at all, so they may consider Haydale products to be junk and in networking at events or otherwise say steer clear of Haydale. False info is no way to advertise yourself.
I'm all ears on what performance improvement (verified data) there is with 125 layer nano graphite which they call graphene.
That would be unjustified as few layer would do the trick.
That's Haydales problem not anyone else. They are the ones allowing their product to be advertised as such.
They have chucked in some cheap nano graphite in and called it graphene then claim it will help with mechanical strength.
3D and their own patent. They comment on many layer graphene.
"thick GNPs provide little advantage over other inexpensive carbon-based fillers, such as extended graphite."
It's Haydale that are doing this not me. They are doing the deals and recording false information NOT ME. It's for them to sort out NOT ME.
I was an interested investor but it seems they have too much misleading information around. That them throws doubt on claims that can't be verified. The AIM is full of companies making things up so when you find things that are untrue it is a red flag for me.
They need to sort their act out and get all the misleading info removed. FFS do they have anyone that checks what they record, some of it is false.
BTW I found a minor typo on the VRS site which could be misleading, I let them know. Within hours it was changed.
No doubt the CEO reads here and the claims on the front page of the website still sit there. It's only a phone call to get it sorted, but then sorting that is at odds with the admission document.
I hope he reads this and reads this and clean up the junk claims out there before it becomes brand beware issue.|
This is coming very repetitive, we obviously disagree, I will let you have the last word and then can we drop it please.|
