Versarien notes completion of NGI composite project

Versarien confirms the successful completion of a grant-funded project focused on graphene enhanced carbon fibre composites with the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at The University of Manchester.

Versarien has been collaborating with the NGI since November 2014.

Extensive trials of the graphene produced by Versarien's subsidiary, 2-DTech, by an NGI team led by Professor Robert Young, Professor of Polymer Science and Technology at The University of Manchester, in carbon fibre composite products, has demonstrated the benefit of adding graphene, particularly with regard to significantly enhancing the strength of the structure.

Following the positive test results from the project the NGI have indicated that they wish to purchase a significant quantity of graphene from Versarien for a specific project with a major OEM.
