October 13, 2016 –Calverton, NY — Graphene 3D Lab (TSXV:GGG, OTCQB:GPHBF) is pleased to announce that it has successfully developed a state-of-the-art graphene composite material intended for users in the automotive, robotics, drone, aerospace industries and military sectors. This material will be marketed under the trade name of “G6-ImpactTM”. The Company has filed a provisional patent application covering methods of production and formulation as well as the potential applications of the G6-ImpactTM material.
The new material features excellent rigidity and extraordinary absorption for both impact and vibration. Its high performance is ensured by the Companies’ proprietary formulation and production method. G6-ImpactTM will be an optimal material for applications where vibration damping is required on rigid surfaces, which could include sporting gear, power tools handles, automotive parts, and aerospace components.
“Being established only a few months ago, the Industrial Materials Division has developed a truly remarkable material with a very promising future. We consider the G6-ImpactTM product to be a milestone achievement for the company.” commented Elena Polyakova, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D. “We anticipate that G6-ImpactTM will address the growing demand for materials with high resilience, good vibration damping, or impact absorption.”
G6-ImpactTM composite material is developed based on a combination of High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) resin, Carbon Fibers and Graphene Nanoplatelets. This new material will be manufactured by Graphene 3D in its New York facility It will be released both in the form of a filament suitable for 3D printing and in the pellet form for injection molding or thermoforming. The Company welcomes any requests to formulate polymer composites based on customer’s target applications. Sample quantities of G6-ImpactTM are available by request.
