Goodfellow and Haydale sign major distribution agreement for graphene materials

Mary Page Bailey

Goodfellow (Coraopolis, Pa.; www.goodfellowusa.com), a global supplier of high-purity metals and materials for research and industry, has entered into a non-exclusive agreement with U.K.-based Haydale Graphene Industries plc (www.haydale.com) to market and distribute Haydale’s functionalized graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs). The Haydale plasma-functionalization process has the potential to offer tailored surface modification of graphene nanomaterials while maintaining structural integrity, eliminating a key barrier to the commercialization of graphene.
 
Goodfellow will initially offer HDPlas O2 oxygen-functionalized GNPs as a trial pack containing 2 g each of material with low, medium and high levels of functionalization. The offer will expand in coming months to include additional products from Haydale’s HDPlas range.
 
 Stephen Aldersley, President of Goodfellow Corporation, believes the new relationship with Haydale is an important expansion of Goodfellow’s activities in the field of nanoparticles in general and graphene in particular. “The Haydale plasma process can demonstrate significant advantages over other functionalization methods, and we are pleased to be promoting their products to our global customer base in this very important research area.”
 
According to Haydale CEO Ray Gibbs, “This agreement with Goodfellow allows more R&D customers worldwide to test and analyze our plasma functionalized materials for integration into their products and applications.”
