Versarien plc (LON:VRS), the advanced materials group, have today announced the launch of the Company’s new graphene brand, Nanene, which will be manufactured through the company’s patent protected, mechanised exfoliation process. This process uses high shearing forces to separate the layers of graphite to sheets of graphene which are less than ten atoms thick, with the majority being less than five atoms thick, ensuring the properties of Nanene are superior to materials already established as the industry norm.
The company has taken this process from the laboratory to scalable production by investments in labour and capital, increasing both throughput and yields. The result of this is an independently verified, high quality graphene product, produced in a manufacturing process that can be scaled to meet ever increasing customer demands.
Nanene can be used in a variety of applications including in high-end applications in carbon fibre composites, such as the order announced on 29 November 2016, which was achieved with a tripling of manufacturing capacity on a short lead time.
Further information on the product may be found at the dedicated website, www.nanene.com.
Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien plc, commented: “Having moved from the R&D phase and secured our first sizable order, we are pleased to launch our new graphene brand, Nanene. Versarien manufactured graphene is of the highest quality and our patent protected manufacturing process allows Nanene to be produced in large volumes at market leading prices.
“We have already demonstrated that we can deliver high quality sizable graphene orders quickly and are confident of securing further significant orders in the coming months.”
