UK-based advanced materials group Versarien has announced the launch of a new protective facemask using Polygrene, the company’s proprietary graphene-enhanced polymer.

The graphene-enhanced mask was developed in collaboration with a Chinese manufacturing partner. It’s a FFP2-rated mask, designed to protect wearers against airborne bacteria and reduce the spread of viruses.

The mask features a coated layer using Polygrene, an advanced graphene-based material blended with a mix of sustainably derived cellulose. The company has already delivered 100,000 masks to a leading British university and has received another order of 20,000 masks from a UK electrical and mechanical servicing and repairs business. By adding graphene to polymers, new products can be produced using production methods that have already been tested.

“Our new graphene-enhanced mask is just one example of Polygrene’s versatility and the high-quality design specifications that can be met using the material. We have taken great encouragement from the initial level of interest and are already in discussions with a number of other potential customers. Importantly, through our partner, we also have the capacity to fulfill much larger numbers of product orders going forward,” said Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien.
