The last few months have been challenging, said chief executive Keith Broadbent, with costs slightly higher than expected while R&D tax credits have taken longer than expected to come through.

Even so, the Company continues to be sufficiently funded said the graphene specialist and with a new global sales team in place, the year has started with a renewed focus and cautious optimism.

Haydale also highlighted its contribution to the new BAC Mono R, which made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The light-weight BAC Mono R body was built using Haydale's graphene-enhanced carbon composite materials.

Broadbent said: "In the development of this project, Haydale has improved the supply chain while enabling BAC to increase the performance of the material. 

"While this outcome has focused on the automotive sector, the knowledge and improvements made provide a wider opportunity for tooling materials across several markets, particularly where there are throughput constraints."

Ian Briggs, Design Director at Briggs Automotive Company, added:  "After the overwhelming success of our R&D project with Haydale and Pentaxia, Mono R could well be a stepping stone for graphene-enhanced composite body panels and tooling reaching the wider automotive industry in the near future."

Haydale's HDPlas reactor is a rapid way to apply graphene and other carbon-based materials to other surfaces. 

Keith Broadbent, Haydale’s chief executive, said: "The installation of the HT60 reactor at the GEIC is a significant step for the commercialisation of graphene.”

Government agency Innovate UK is the sponsor of the 12-month project under the Analysis for Innovators (A4i) scheme

Haydale said it has significantly upgraded its HDPlas plasma technology since it was verified by NPL in 2014 and through the collaboration will gain additional understanding of the surface chemistry of the graphene after functionalisation.

This is crucial in tailoring its use for specific needs.

Haydale’s core applications currently are inks, elastomers, coatings and composites.

Keith Broadbent, Haydale’s chief executive, said: "This world-class research and analysis is imperative for the development and understanding of our functionalisation process."

Andrew Pollard, NPL Science Area Leader, added: "Understanding the fundamental material properties of graphene after industrial processing steps, is crucial in determining the performance-enhancement in real-world products.“

In morning trading, Haydale Graphene shares were 1.2% higher at 2.05p.

CTPs are used to provide sealing around pipelines when they pass through concrete walls, allowing pipes to be inspected and maintained more easily while preventing contamination by soil and water.

Haydale said a benefits case analysis by NG had rated the CTPs as “low” risk, meaning that it had high confidence in the results the seals would achieve.

The firm has already pre-fabricated eight new CTPs, with a total of nine scheduled to be installed by the National Grid by the end of 2019.

“Haydale is pleased to be working with National Grid on this system which is a huge step forward in safety and efficiency for the gas network”, said Keith Broadbent, Haydale’s chief executive.

“With £228,000 average savings per CTP design life and 700 fewer hours carrying out 'at risk' activities for each CTP over 50-year period, it is clear to see the benefit that the system offers to the customer. We look forward to working with gas infrastructure owners worldwide who can also benefit from the product."

Paul Ogden, senior civil engineer at National Grid, added that the company expects to install around 60 CTPs across its national transmission system over the next six years.

In late-morning trading, Haydale shares were up 0.7% at 2p.

The company has spent US$1.5mln in its own production facilities in the US and will now use internally-produced engineered ceramic blends to manufacture and sell sintered ceramic blanks.

Tom Quantrille, chief executive of Haydale’s US arm, said the ability to produce sintered ceramic blanks in large quantities will mean it can give exceptional value to customers.

Jet engine and aerospace manufacturers have already approved the blanks and Haydale is now in the process of scaling up production

(HP1T) over an 18-month period.

The AIM-listed advanced materials group said the value of the supply agreement is not disclosed due to its commercially sensitive nature.

It added that the initial supply is required for the first stage of development for a HP1T customer. HP1T creates bespoke flexible, printed, functionalised nano carbon-based sensor systems that can measure and collect high-quality impact and pressure data.

The company said the newly signed supply agreement will see Haydale become HP1T's single supplier of functionalised nano carbon inks.

Haydale added that working in collaboration with HP1T, the functionalised ink will be used to create printed sensors, allowing HP1T to monitor changes when mechanical stress is applied.

The group said that combining Haydale's piezoresistive inks, intelligent printing and HP1T's software and technology, HP1T's initial focus will be on using the pressure sensors in helmets as a diagnostic, however HP1T is also undertaking trials with adapting its sensor system for use in a variety of applications including aerospace, military, robotics and utilities.

David Banks, Haydale’ interim executive chairman, commented: "This Supply Agreement demonstrates a significant step forward in the commercialisation of our functionalised nano carbon-based inks.

“We welcome the opportunity to work with HP1T in these early development stages and we look forward to developing the relationship further."

In early afternoon trading, Haydale Graphene shares were  12.1% higher at 32.5p.
