I have it posted a lie. I said it is positive that there was no profit warning which is where is the lie?
Mr Bear: user name 1looking , member since 2014 and has posted 49 times.

Mr Bear clearly has a personal agenda against this company hence he posts lies like the one above about the profit warning.

He only posts comments on this company so it's very obvious he does NOT own shares in any other company and he certainly does not own shares in HAYD.

Mr Bear the share price is at or near the lows and will rerate very sharply throughout 2023

Nothing to worry about Mr Bear - unless you happen to be short:

Good progress scaling up operations to take advantage of current commercial opportunities

Successfully commissioned the larger HT1400 plasma reactor which is delivering a significant increase in functionalisation capacity to allow production to move to an industrial level in FY23

Positive progress in the energy, heating and power storage sectors.

liquid doping technology that allows graphene to be dosed with microscopic levels of metals to enhance the conductivity and resistivity of our functionalised inks

Using graphene inks to develop underfloor heating solutions that may offer an energy efficient, cost effective and easy to install underfloor heating system


During the year we made significant investments in both our functionalisation capacity and in the wider team that allows us to deliver sustainable revenues for the Company. With the fundamental building blocks in place, the Board remains confident that the Company will be able to take advantage of the commercial traction it is seeing.

Mr Bear

There was never a chance of that happening.

Contracts and trials for new work are increasing all the time and the outlook for 2023 is very bullish:

Haydale Has Food Packaging All Zipped Up

Haydale, (AIM: HAYD), the global advanced materials group, has started to supply South Korean plastics developer NeoEnpla Co., Ltd with functionalised graphene nano-platelets (GNPs) for use in food packaging.

Functionalised using Haydale's patented HDPlas(R) technology, the GNP-enhanced thermoplastic has been used to manufacture an initial sample range of food storage zipper bags and biodegradable plastic bags.

Keeping Food Fresher for Longer

The graphene zipper bags have shown an increase in tensile strength of 31% compared to non-graphene LLDPE (linear low-density polyethylene) zipper bags(1).

LLDPE and LDPE (low density polyethylene) are widely used in food packaging and are ideal for food storage due to their high resistance to moisture, tearing and chemicals. The increased mechanical strength of the graphene zipper bags allows light weighting of the plastic, reducing the film thickness from 90um to 60um per bag.

Food packaging primarily acts as a barrier to moisture and gases (including contaminants) that ordinarily lead to a reduction in the shelf-life of food.

The new graphene-enhanced food storage bags keep the food fresher for longer thanks to the anti-bacterial, UV and barrier properties of functionalised graphene, resulting in less food waste. The graphene-composites polymer bags demonstrated their own oxygen blocking effect keeping food such as bread, cake and rice containing carbohydrates fresher for longer compared to non-graphene bags.

Plastic packaging is necessary to maintain the shelf life of fresh food items, reducing food waste by spoilage before use. By ensuring barrier performance is delivered in products that can be recycled or composted, there is the potential for a more sustainable approach to the challenges often faced by producing recyclable materials.

Improving Sustainability of Plastics

With the increasing demand to reduce single use plastics and increase recycling rates, getting the performance characteristics demanded by the industry is a challenge. To address this, both recyclable LLDPE and LDPE were evaluated in addition to PBAT (Polybutylene Adipate Terephthalate), a biodegradable polymer that is already seeing increasing demand for its biodegradable properties.

The new biodegradable bags contain a blend of PLA (Polylactic Acid) and PBAT, and enhanced with GNPs, offer increased strength without affecting the compostability of the films.

Haydale believes to be at the forefront of graphene and other nanomaterials being used in food packaging through the HiBarFilm2 project, which aims to develop the next generation of high barrier films for food packaging using plasma functionalisation.

The project, which started earlier this year, aims to redesign multilayer films into 100% recyclable and compostable mono-material solutions for the food industry. The funded project focusses on using HDPlas(R) functionalised barrier additives including graphene, to maximise barrier performance and improve dispersion of the additives within the chosen matrix. Key project deliverables are intended to reduce the environmental impact of packaging plastics and offer more sustainable barrier solutions to combat food waste.

A positive in that there is no profit warning with the notice of results....
The company at this present moment is fully funded and the news flow from the company is also very bullish , this from 20/01/2023:

Haydale Graphene-Enhanced Prepreg Extends Tool Life Over 100 per cent

Haydale, (AIM: HAYD), the global technology solutions company, is pleased to be launching its graphene-enhanced prepreg after extended field trials more than doubled the manufacture of composite parts.

Using Haydale's HDPlas technology, functionalised graphene is added to high performing tooling epoxy resin and then pre-impregnated onto a suitable carbon fibre reinforcement for use in tool manufacture.

The graphene-enhanced epoxy prepreg tooling material is designed to deliver cost-efficient composite tooling with extended tooling life, improved surface quality and enhanced thermal conductivity.

Working with a UK Automotive Tier 1 composite parts manufacturer, Prodrive Composites Ltd ("Prodrive"), the tooling prepreg has been on trial for two years, and they have been delighted with the performance they have seen.

"We have been producing duplicate parts with both our standard and the nano-enhanced version and can say with confidence that the Haydale material has delivered more than 500 parts without any deterioration of the mould surface. Using the standard version, we would expect approximately 250 pulls from a tool before it is replaced," says Matt Bradney, Director of Business Development, Prodrive.

Commenting on the graphene-enhanced prepreg, Keith Broadbent Haydale CEO said:

"With fibre-reinforced composites gaining in use across aerospace and automotive applications, the fact that our functionalised graphene can extend the tooling life significantly will mean substantial cost savings for the producer and end user."

Switching over to the graphene-enhanced prepreg requires no changes to standard processing for use in autoclave and out-of-autoclave (OOA) applications.

The company is fully funded until the next discounted fundraise
The company is fully funded , starting new trials with United Utilities:

CeramycGuard(TM) on Trial with United Utilities

CeramycGuard(TM), exclusively distributed by Haydale (AIM: HAYD) in the UK is currently being trialled by United Utilities at their wastewater treatment works in Oldham, UK. The unique low CO2 ceramic-polymer surface treatment has been applied to a 10m(2) area of a newly commissioned final settlement tank. The trial will last for a period of six months.

Previously, the internal face of the tanks on site have been coated with a repair screed and topcoat, which have not achieved a satisfactory service life because of the harsh, chemical environment. The chemicals within the water create a chalky surface with holes that reduce the reinforcement coverage. As a result, repair work is having to be carried out at regular intervals, requiring the tanks to be taken offline, which is both expensive and time consuming.

CeramycGuard(TM) uses Haydale's proprietary silicon carbide microfibres, along with nano-Alumina and Zirconia Silicates to renew and preserve concrete surfaces by chemically bonding to the concrete. The surface treatment fills the pores and microcracks to create a new ceramic surface layer that is impermeable to corrosive liquids such as acids and salts, and microbiologically active solutions.

The CeramycGuard(TM) was applied by roller within 10 minutes. The surface can be cured at five or 12 degrees, with the concrete asset being back in service between 24 hours and seven days after application, depending on the size of the area being treated. For the trial, after seven days a topcoat of Haydale's QuartzSeal(TM) was applied over the CeramycGuard(TM) to further inhibit the ingress of water and chemical pollutants and to seal out dust and dirt and protect against stains. This also makes the new surface layer biologically impervious.

As a non-toxic water-based product that does not contain VOCs or leachable organic constitutes, CeramycGuard's CO2 footprint is significantly lower than epoxy systems by up to 50 times in an equivalent application. Its unique properties can potentially protect and extend the life of concrete assets such as final settlement tanks by up to 30 years.

The application of the surface treatment is currently undergoing a monitoring process, but as an asset preservation technology it is anticipated to extend the service life of the final settlement tank. At the end of the six-month trial, a thorough inspection of the treated area will be carried out. The outcome of the current trial could result in CeramycGuard(TM) being used to treat multiple assets on the site to extend their service life. The benefits are likely to be long-term cost savings by using a product that could reduce the frequency of repairs with much lower CO2 emissions compared to systems currently used to coat concrete.

Those who missed yesterday's excellent presentation c/o the Graphene Council can find it here FYI -

Just to clarify the above : it's 10am EST; 3pm GMT.
Perhaps next Tuesday's Graphene Council webinar at 10.00am should be closely watched .

John Mark Seymour of Haydale , the key developer of their plasma functionalisation process , is one of two presenters discussing how functionalisation can unlock graphene's commercial potential .

David Banks should go. 40% votes against is a strong message of shareholders disappointment
Haydale started with a logical assumption. Pure graphene has no functional groups so would be extremely difficult to disperse in anything from water to organic polymers thus preventing its application.
Their idea / tech was to functionalise graphene by adding charged groups to the surface which would enable dispersion. The plan was to buy graphene and 'activate ' it for the various applications. There are a number of ways to produce graphene. It turns out that at least one production method leaves a small number of functional groups on the surface. These groups are sufficient to allow the graphene to be dispersed. It's still quite a challenge and most producers are stuck at the dispersion stage either due to their graphene structure or a lack of dispersion expertise.
Dispersed graphene has been shown to work in all applications attempted to date. This has left Haydale with a technology searching for an application. If an application arises where dispersion isn't possible with native graphene, they have a potential answer but to date it hasn't proved to be necessary.
Graphene producers that make material which ends up with little in the way of functional groups could come to Haydale to add groups, but that product would increase the cost by whatever Haydale would charge making it hard in the long term to compete with the existing material reaching the market.

If they have cutting edge technology, why can't they commercialise it in large scale?
The directors' statements sound like those of politicians that are contradictory.

No surprise as this board and previous directors have continually failed to deliver
Sliding into the abyss. Bet the 2p buyers are thrilled
.. Or sell what you have and buy back at 1p sometime after the placing
Sell what you have and buy back for 2p in the placing.
Agree. There couldn’t have been a worse time to raise.
Interesting that finncap are celebrating the fact they have raised £5m for HAYD on LinkedIn.

They should be embarrassed their corporate client raised funds at such a discount.

Not a good look.

rock star
Well, pleasing - safe for another year. After reading the announcement yesterday evening, I genuinely thought it could be curtains.

There has to be a reduction in the cash burn - it has increased massively but as they state, it is because of investment in production capacity and staff. They're currently on cash burn of c.£4.8m per annum. It must be at least halved by August 2023 - why are folk (even vultures) going to keep chucking money at it otherwise?

What perturbed me most was that yesterday's announcement didn't include any meaningful confidence that the PLC would see a tangible return on their increase in expenditure - just that LBITDA would be reduced in FY2023.

As already noted, a significant reduction is absolutely essential to gain further funding. Big announcements required this year.

INSP shares jump soon
This has taken roughly 3 weeks to organise and surprise surprise the share price has halved ... if I was on commission to round up the criminals I would be very rich ! It is sad that this will go unchallenged by the authorities, anyone with half a brain could find the culprits ..,
