- Haydale Graphene Industries has announced an agreement with Taiwan-based Dowton Electronic Materials Co for the development, production, sales and marketing of a Haydale-branded graphene enhanced screen printable ink which will be aimed initially at the biomedical market.

Haydale has worked with Dowton to create a range of graphene enhanced screen printable inks and pastes that can be rapidly altered to precisely suit customer needs.

In the agreement, Haydale will retain the exclusive rights to sell the developed inks into Europe, the Americas, Korea and Southeast Asia, while Dowton will have exclusive rights to sell the developed inks in its home market of The Republic of China (Taiwan) and also market the ink to existing customers in Japan and other territories.

Dowton has existing customer demand for conductive inks incorporating both carbon and metals (such as Palladium, Silver Copper, and Nickel), and will continue to sell existing products under its own Dowton brand. The agreement is for an initial term of 5 years with automatic renewal thereafter subject to a 6 months termination clause. Production quantities for commercial applications are anticipated in 2016 with leads already under evaluation.
