New project to develop Graphene-enhanced for aerospace components
Two European companies target to utilises proprietary technology to create innovative new engineering solutions that are capable of having a game-changing impact using Graphene to enhance materials, Versarien recently announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Spain-based CT Engineering to develop graphene-enhanced composite components for the aerospace industry to change this industry future.
The companies will collaborate to develop a new generation of aerospace components enhanced with Graphene the strongest material in the world to make aerospace materials more strong, safe and lightweight this point very import to make travel more affordable and environment-friendly because of it save fuel to market leading material properties and performance levels.
According to company representatives, the unique combination of CT Engineering’s position as a first tier supplier to Airbus Group specializing in advanced composite research and design and Versarien’s protected graphene-enhanced technology, will rapidly move this venture forward and produce a range of innovative products that will change the current aerospace component market.
Paul Chinnock, General Manager CT Engineering Group UK, commented: “Our work with Versarien will allow us to develop a whole new generation of aerospace components with market leading material properties and performance levels. The unique combination of CT Engineering position as a first tier supplier to Airbus Group specialising in advanced composite research & design and Versarien’s protected graphene technology, will rapidly move this venture forward and produce a range of innovative products that will disrupt the current aerospace component market.”
Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien plc commented: “We are delighted to have entered into a collaboration with CT Engineering, a company who specialise in the design of carbon fibre technology for the aerospace industry. This is another example of the significant commercial interest we are seeing in our graphene technology and how it is rapidly moving from the lab to real world applications, positioning Versarien as the leading graphene supplier to industry in the UK.”
