Haydale Expands Elastomer Capability

Haydale, (AIM: HAYD), the global advanced materials group, is pleased to announce that it has completed the installation and commissioning of a two-roll lab mill at its site in Loughborough, UK.

This new investment will allow Haydale to compound nanomaterials into a range of elastomers which will support customers interested in using nanomaterials in their elastomeric products for a range of property improvements, such as thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and increased mechanical performance.

The new elastomer mixing capability sits alongside the current elastomer moulding and testing facilities that are already on site at Haydale in Loughborough, UK, thereby bringing in-house the facility for Haydale to serve customer requirements for nanomaterial enhanced elastomer development.  

Areas Haydale is currently working on wrt elastomers are:

  • Automotive tyres.
  • Auto, rail and marine for antivibration mounts.
  • Seals and gaskets.
  • Medical devices.
  • Latex gloves.

Keith Broadbent, Haydale Managing Director Composites, said: “We are really pleased to be able to offer this additional capability from our Loughborough site and look forward to working more closely with our existing, and new, elastomer customers.”

Ray Gibbs, Haydale CEO, said: “This market-led improvement to our facility shows how Haydale is responding to the needs of its customers.”
