Under the partnership, the company will install and commission one of its HT60 plasma reactors into the new facility in Manchester.
“We are really delighted to be a part of the application's development focus for graphene products in the GEIC,” said Haydale chairman David Banks.
“We are housing our patented HT60 plasma reactor in the building to help further functionalisation and applications knowledge across a range of graphene and other 2D materials where correct chemical bonding is a key part of the dispersion techniques we employ.”
Haydale said the University of Manchester is where graphene was first isolated and the GEIC is expected to be a “world centre of excellence” for research into commercial graphene applications.
The firm’s technology and people will be closely integrated with the research, it said, adding that it will collaborate to expand the opportunities for graphene.
"This initiative is attracting national and international collaboration partners to a world-renowned graphene and nanomaterials research and development facility,” said chief executive Ray Gibbs.
“We are looking forward to adding real value to potential and existing business partners looking for application specific uplifts in improving performance across a range of products."
