Versarien has announced that it has signed an agreement with Luxus to develop a UK graphene-enhanced polymer supply chain, to enable the volume production of graphene enhanced plastics.
Luxus manufactures high quality thermoplastics from prime and recycled polymers and is the largest independently owned plastic manufacturer in the UK, supplying plastics to the automotive, packaging, civil engineering and a variety of other sectors.
Utilizing Versarien's proprietary Nanene few layer graphene nano-platelets, this collaboration will involve the incorporation of graphene into polymers to enhance mechanical strength and other properties.
Versarien has a contract with the Warwick Manufacturing Group ("WMG") with the objective of optimizing the performance of graphene enhanced polymers on Versarien's behalf, including the employment of dedicated Versarien resource.
This new collaboration with Luxus is designed to ensure that the developed plastics can be produced at commercial scale for supply to injection molding companies, such as Versarien's AAC Cyroma, enabling products to be produced for a variety of industries.
