Haydale Extends Exclusive Distributor Agreement to Supply CeramycGuard™ (previously CeramycShield™) into the UK
26 April 2021
Haydale, (AIM: HAYD), the global advanced materials group, is pleased to announce that, further to its announcement on 20th July 2020, it has now signed an amendment to the original distributor agreement (the "Amendment") with US-based Zirconia Inc. The Amendment extends the term from 31 December 2023 to 31 December 2030 and now allows Haydale full distribution rights of CeramycGuard™, ceramic geopolymers, across all sectors in the UK.
With authorisation from Zirconia, Haydale may now also distribute to additional territories outside of the US, for all markets and sectors.
In addition, the product has met all of the requirements of the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS), conforming to the test requirements BS 6920. This assesses the suitability of Non-Metallic products for use in contact with water intended for human consumption with regard to their effect on the quality of the water.
Benjamin Cook, CEO at Zirconia, said: "We look forward to working with Haydale to expand opportunities in the UK and elsewhere in the world. We are seeing increased activity around water infrastructure both in terms of renovation and new construction globally. We are also happy to see clean-tech like ours get the attention from the public and governments alike, which will drive greener jobs and more sustainable infrastructure."
Keith Broadbent, Haydale CEO, said: "This product appears to have been well received and is in trial with water companies, including the recently announced Biwater trial. We are targeting applications across a number of industries for rejuvenation and repair of concrete assets and believe it will be a great benefit to customers with degrading concrete assets, potentially across the wider territories we now have access to. The latest WRAS compliance opens new avenues for commercialisation."
