Haydale, the global advanced materials group, announced that it has partnered with 401 Tech Bridge, Rhode Island, US, to provide a HT200 Plasma Reactor and advanced materials support for their innovation ecosystem, supporting economic growth.
The HT200 Plasma Reactor will be utilised in the 401 Tech Bridge Advanced Materials and Technology Center, managed by the University of Rhode Island (URI), to support material commercialisation efforts of Graphene Composites, a nano-materials engineering company, and other local composites and textiles-based businesses. This adds to 401 Tech Bridge’s capability supporting its ambition to accelerate the adoption of new materials and support companies’ efforts in developing products that will change the world.
The HT200 incorporates Haydale’s patented functionalisation technologies which will be utilised by Graphene Composites, a nano-materials engineering company, for its newly developed anti-viral GC Ink™ and other products. GC Ink™ has been independently tested by Brown University in Rhode Island to show effectiveness at neutralising coronavirus and influenza viruses in under one minute, and the findings have been published on bioRxiv.
