Alabama Graphite (“AGC” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:CSPG) (OTCQB:CSPGF) (FRANKFURT:1AG) is pleased to announce positive evaluation results for its downstream high-purity, natural flake Purified Micronized Graphite (“PMG”) product — marketed under the tradename ULTRA-PMG™ — from Dallas, Texas-based RSR Technologies (“RSRT”).
RSRT is a leading research and development company focused on advancing lead-acid battery technologies. AGC’s ULTRA-PMG™ was used as a leady-oxide additive for lead-acid batteries and was tested in 48 battery cells built by RSRT.
Dr. Matthew Raiford, RSRT’s Process Engineer, and supervisor of the evaluation, commented:
“Alabama Graphite’s ULTRA-PMG™ product outperformed all other standard commercially available carbon products we have tested, including carbon black. There are barely any impurities, and of the impurities none of them are even a remote concern for gassing in lead-acid batteries. This was the purest graphite product we have ever studied and analyzed — by a significant margin.”
