, on Wednesday signed a collaboration agreement with Refractory Solutions Insertec S.L.U. to enhance the performance of certain refractory materials in molten metal applications.
Versarien and Insertec will be working on a project to incorporate Versarien's Hexotene® into certain of Insertec's refractory materials.
Insertec is an international manufacturer of industrial furnaces and refractory products, headquartered in Spain.
Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien, commented: "I am delighted that Versarien is working with Insertec with a view to enhancing the performance of their ceramics, used in foundries and other areas when molten metals are handled, through the addition of Versarien's Hexotene®.”
“This is our first collaboration utilising Hexotene® in a high temperature industrial application and we look forward to working with the Insertec team.”
Hexotene® is a few layer hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanoplatelet powder known as "white graphene", has a layered structure similar to graphite.
Versarien believes that Hexotene® added to Insertec’s products, has useful properties like high thermal stability, high thermal conductivity, high mechanical strength and resistance to chemicals and solvents.
Versarien said that other key collaborations “continue to progress” it will update investors on new potential applications for the company’s 2D materials.
