The service will aim to increase the availability of information on the properties of graphene

Haydale Graphene Industries PLC (LON:HAYD) has noted the launch of a new graphene characterisation service at the University of Manchester.

The AIM-listed nanomaterials specialist said the new service, launched through a partnership between the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the National Graphene Institute (NGI), was intended to accelerate the industrialisation of graphene in the UK by increasing the availability of information of the material's properties.

Commenting on the announcement, the NPL said the new service would provide “reliable, accurate and consistent measurement and assessment of graphene” as well as providing industry with “the information it needs to scale up production and application of the material”.

Ray Gibbs, chief executive of Haydale, welcomed the new initiative, saying that "In order for graphene to be utilised in industry, it is vital that a reliable and consistent product is made available”.

The announcement follows news in June when Haydale said it had been selected as a core tier one partner of the University of Manchester’s £60mln Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC), in which it would install and commission one of its HT60 plasma reactors into the new Manchester facility.
