Our Nanocomposites direction is supported via Black Masterbatch development with selected partners, and a preference for driving solutions in the High-Performance Engineering area.


Using Thomas Swan GNP one of our customers, Graphene Composites Ltd, has developed a lightweight, flexible shield that is both bullet and stab proof (i.e. tested to exceed US National Institute of Justice Level IIIA and UK Home Office PB1 and KR2 standards). Different variants of the GC Shield™ can fit into a schoolbag or provide full torso protection.
