- Advanced materials group Haydale said it had launched a range of graphene-enhanced prepreg material for lightning-strike protection.

This prepreg material delivered a new generation of carbon fibre-reinforced composites with improved electrical conductivity, thanks to the use of functionalised nanomaterials.

These materials could be used for structural components as well as for enclosures for the electronic avionics systems, the company said.

The materials developed had 'potential applications with regards to UAVs (drones) along with commercial aviation in general, and space applications,' the company said.
