Graphene powder composite specialist Haydale has reportedly supplied a HT200 Plasma Reactor to 401 Tech Bridge, a non-profit materials development organization based in Rhode Island, USA.

According to the company, the reactor will be used in the organization’s advanced materials and technology center, managed by the University of Rhode Island (URI), to help commercialize a range of graphene composite ink produced by Graphene Composites, a nano-materials engineering company.

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, Haydale says.

‘Installing the Haydale equipment in the 401 Tech Bridge Advanced Materials & Technology Center will make it available to companies that are doing advanced materials research, enabling innovation and economic growth,’ said Christian Cowan, Tech Bridge 401 executive director. ‘We’re pleased to partner with Haydale, and to be working with Graphene Composites as they bring the GC Ink to market.’
