Haydale to provide HT200 Plasma Reactor to U.S-based 401 Tech Bridge
Haydale announced that it has partnered with US-based 401 Tech Bridge to provide an HT200 plasma reactor and advanced materials support for its innovation ecosystem.
The HT200 plasma reactor is deployed at the 401 Materials Bridge Advanced Materials and Technology Center, managed by the University of Rhode Island (URI), to support graphene composite material commercialization efforts and other local composite and textile companies . This adds to 401 Tech Bridge’s ability to support efforts to accelerate the introduction of new materials and assist companies in new product development efforts.
The HT200 incorporates Haydale’s patented functionalization technologies used by Graphene Composites, a nanomaterials engineering company, for its newly developed antiviral GC Ink ™ and other products. GC Ink ™ has been independently tested by Brown University in Rhode Island to demonstrate its effectiveness in neutralizing coronavirus and influenza viruses in less than a minute.
Christian Cowan, Executive Director of Tech Bridge 401, said, “By installing the Haydale equipment at the 401 Tech Bridge Advanced Materials & Technology Center, it will be made available to companies that conduct advanced materials research and enable innovation and economic growth. We are delighted Partnered with Haydale and worked with Graphene Composites to bring GC Ink ™ to market. “
Sandy Chen, CEO and Co-Founder of Graphene Composites, said, “The ability to access Haydale technology and 401 Tech Bridge’s unique innovation facilities is a significant advance in fully commercializing our GC Ink ™ as a powerful weapon against this pandemic and Support the safe reopening of schools and public spaces. “
Keith Broadbent, CEO of Haydale added, “We are excited to partner with 401 Tech Bridge and look forward to our technology that will help introduce nanotechnology into composites in Rhode Island. It is great to see Haydale’s patented functionalization process plays such an important role in a solution. “
