Haydales's HDPlas® Process

Our patented HDPlas® process harnesses the potential of advanced materials changing them from inert to active for numerous applications.

Functionalised nanomaterials provide a wide range of benefits:

  • Electrical conductivity
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Mechanical strength
  • Wear resistance

Getting the right combination

Haydale is here to help source the correct material for your specific application or product.

Unlocking Graphene

Graphene can radically improve the properties of the materials products are made from. Discovered in 2004, the use of graphene has been slow due to its inert nature. Making it mix with other materials is difficult and chemically complex.

Haydale has developed a powder in, powder out process that overcomes this problem called plasma functionalisation.

Unlike other methods that use complex and damaging chemical processes, the Haydale HDPlas® method is a dry, clean, and environmentally friendly process that unlocks the properties of graphene and other nanomaterials to give products improved mechanical strength and increased electrical and thermal conductivity.

Unlock the potential of graphene with the help of Haydale – making your products leap ahead of competitors.

Advanced Material Products

Functionalised Graphene

There are a wide range of opportunities for functionalised graphene and our technology unlocks the real potential of this ‘wonder’ material.

To make them work, graphene and other nanomaterials need to be treated. This changes the surface chemistry of the material releasing all the delights these materials have to offer. However, for quality, high-volume production, the method used is important.

Haydale’s HDPlas® technology holds the key to unlocking the world of advanced materials for your products.

Functionalised Boron Nitride

Boron nitride, sometimes referred to as ‘white graphene’ is an ideal material for a wide range of applications. The synthetic ceramic material is non-toxic and available in solid and powder forms. Untreated it presents the same problems as graphene so to unlock the great properties of insulation, strength, weight and electrical conductivity it needs to be functionalised.

Graphene Inks

Haydale has a range of customisable graphene inks for use in biomedical devices, flexible electronics, heating elements and wearable technology.

Produced in the UK, our inks are manufactured using the HDPlas® functionalisation process – an environmentally friendly, sustainable plasma process that functionalises an array of graphene-enhanced materials.

Elastomers and Rubber Technology

Haydale has developed a range of functionalised graphene and nanomaterial additives for use in elastomer product manufacturing.

Through functionalised nanomaterials we have improved strength, weight, abrasion and wear, leading to better product performance and increased lifespan.

Applications include rubber bicycle and road tyres, footwear rubber soles, seals, and gaskets.

coatings

Coatings

Silicon carbide is used in a ceramic-polymer surface treatment to protect concrete products.

CeramycGuard chemically bonds to the surface removing the problems of delamination and peeling associated with epoxies and paints.

The ‘repair rather than replace’ approach reduces the frequency new concrete is needed, potentially reducing CO2 emissions.

Composites

Using functionalised graphene, we have developed a range of carbon fibre prepregs for volume manufacture. By adding graphene nanomaterials, our prepregs increase impact resistance and compression after impact performance of carbon fibre reinforced epoxy components.

Applications include lightning strike protection in aircraft, motor vehicle panels, and sporting goods in skiing, cycling and tennis.

750-thermoplastics

Thermoplastics

Thermoplastics represent the majority of polymers produced today and are broadly split across three classes of material: standard plastics, performance plastics and high-performance plastics.

The majority of thermoplastics produced are used in packaging and construction.

Silar Cutting Tools

For successful metal cutting operations, the selection of cutting tool material and grade is always important. Ceramic cutting tools have excellent wear resistance at high cutting speeds.

Haydale’s Silar cutting tools are manufactured using the highest quality silicon carbide whiskers, products, particulate, fibres and microfibres.
