Versarien plc (AIM: VRS) is an IP-led advanced engineering materials group that utilises proprietary technology to create innovative engineering solutions. Versarien holds more than 130 patents covering areas including the manufacture and use of graphene and related materials (GRMs) in diverse applications. We develop and manufacture advanced materials and products globally through a number of subsidiaries, and have the widest portfolio of high-quality verified products.
Our technology originates from the Universities of Manchester, Cambridge and Ulster, where our R&D laboratories are located. The graphene powders (Nanene™) that are manufactured by Versarien Graphene Limited are registered with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) under Article 20(2) Annex VII. 2-DTech Ltd is also regulated by REACH in both the EU and UK markets.
We collaborate with the most exciting sports brands to bring our Graphene-Wear™ technology to the market. Through joint R&D projects, sports garments, footwear and accessories are able to prosper from the many benefits graphene offers. Our Graphene-Wear™ products are lab and wearer tested by independent bodies.
The FFP2 RD masks are novel reusable masks that combine cutting edge filtration technology to help provide enhanced protection against airborne particles and to minimise the spread of viral infection. The FFP2 RD masks are fully accredited, holding European safety certification and a CE mark.
The Graphene Council administers the Verified Graphene Producer® and the Verified Functionalized Graphene™ programs, the only credentials that include independent 3rd party in-person inspections of graphene production facilities, verification of production methods, volumes and quality control processes.The Verified Graphene Producer® and Verified Functionalized GrapheneTM programs also include independent expert testing of graphene materials by internationally recognised and qualified labs, such as the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in the UK, according to the Graphene Classification Framework.Versarien uses proprietary materials technology to create innovative engineering solutions that are capable of having game-changing impact in a broad variety of industry sectors.Versarien was the first company in the world to pass the rigorous Verified Graphene Producer® program in 2019, and has been re-certified in 2022.
Neill Ricketts, Founder and Director of Versarien: "We are delighted that Versarien is the first graphene producer to successfully gain recertification under the Graphene Council's Verified Graphene Producer programme following the scale-up of our graphene production facilities. This validation of our technology will enable our partners and potential customers to have confidence that the graphene we produce meets globally accepted standards."
Terrance Barkan, Executive Director of The Graphene Council: "We congratulate the Versarien team on obtaining a successful re-certification as a Verified Graphene Producer®, which we believe is the most stringent validation programme available for the Graphene sector. Versarien has proven itself to be a true leader in the production and application of graphene materials and we are proud to have them as a member of the Graphene Council."
