Haydale Technologies, Star RFID Partner to Develop Graphene Inks for RFID

Haydale Technologies has announced the signing of a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) between Haydale and Star RFID. Haydale is a global technologies and materials group that facilitates the integration of graphene and other nanomaterials into commercial technologies and industrial materials. With expertise in graphene, silicon carbide and other nanomaterials, Haydale offers solutions for electrical, thermal and mechanical properties. The firm has granted patents for its technologies in Europe, the United States, Australia, Japan and China, and operates from six sites throughout the United Kingdom, the United States and the Far East.

The JDA is for the parties to co-develop graphene- and silver-based inks for the printed RFID market. This co-development is expected to lead to a supply and collaboration agreement during the coming months. The parties have already commenced development of a dedicated silver ink for Star RFID, and have a small paid-for project to carry out this work. Star RFID has first right of refusal for any products arising from the JDA.

"Since HTT, our Thai facility, officially opened in March 2017, we have secured a number of paid-for projects that have developed into longer term and closer working relationships with some of Thailand's high profile companies," said David Banks, Haydale's executive chairman, in a prepared statement. "Star RFID is no exception and we look forward to further developments in 2019."

Apiwat Thongprasert, Star RFID's managing director, added in the prepared statement, "We are really excited to work with Haydale and use their speciality graphene and silver inks. We see a strong commercial arrangement as key to sales success together with a highly consistent product. Something we already know that Haydale can provide."
