Haydale Launches its HDPlas™ Graphene-based Inks for Printed Electronics

Published on 2012-12-07. Author : SpecialChem

SANTA CLARA -- Haydale, the world's leading supplier of high quality plasma functionalized, highly dispersible graphenes, announces the immediate availability of its new range of graphene based inks for printed electronics. The new range of functional components based on graphenes, are designed for applications in gas/chemical and bio- sensors, thin film lithium ion batteries and conductive inks.

Technical Manager Martin Williams explained, "We are confident that Haydale's split plasma processed graphenes will deliver significant benefits over current commercial sensor technology. While current chemical field effect transistors have excellent sensitivity and selectivity they are unavailable on a mass-market basis due to high manufacturing costs. HDPlas™ inks enable a wide range of low cost devices based on changes in the conductivity of graphenes."

Haydale plasma decorated silicon-graphene nano platelets are available in a range of surface areas, and with x-y dimensions of less than 2 microns provide an ideal current collecting component for thin film lithium ion batteries. Dispensing with the need to use expensive metallic components allows HDPlas™ inks to provide the cost effective current collector required by the market.

Haydale's HDPlas™ plasma processed material is available in a variety of formats that are compatible with current printing technologies, and can be modified to meet specific customer requirements.

Commercial Director, Ray Gibbs added "Haydale's graphene based inks, launched under our brand HDPlas™ have the potential to enable a wide range of new printed applications including smart cards, medical devices, greeting cards, high security credit card sensors and passive RFID. In response to increased demand we are currently commissioning a five fold increase in production capacity, along with an expanded product development laboratory."
