Haydale Graphene-Enhanced Composite Tooling and Automotive Body Panels Showcased at Goodwood Festival of Speed

July 22 2019

Haydale informed that its graphene-enhanced prepreg has now been incorporated in the composite tooling and automotive body panels of the new BAC Mono R, which made its debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Briggs Automotive Company (BAC), working alongside both Haydale and Pentaxia, has built the lightweight BAC Mono R body using Haydale’s graphene-enhanced carbon composite materials.
The component parts have been formed using Haydale’s graphene-enhanced tooling materials. Utilization of graphene-enhanced tooling materials offers the potential for significant improvements in the following aspects:

• The coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) – is more closely matched when using composite tooling. A key issue with the use of metal tooling is a significant mismatch in (CTE)
• The need for superior quality – higher dimensional stability tooling is increasing the demand for composite tooling
• Current composite tools also suffer from a finite life - wearing of the tool surfaces and microcracking.

The use of graphene has the potential to increase the life of the tools
