Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSXV:GGG) Introduces Graphene Flex Foam Product

Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSXV: GGG) (“Graphene 3D” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the release of a new commercial product ‘Graphene Flex Foam’, a Multilayer Freestanding Flexible Graphene Foam. This material is a combination of highly conductive three-dimensional Chemical Vapor Disposition (“CVD”) ultra-light graphene foam and conductive elastomer composite.

“We have the ability to manufacture Graphene Flex Foam in basically any shape or size, but it is the flexibility of the product which we believe will capture the attention of innovative manufacturers who will want to evaluate the potential of commercializing this material into their products.” stated Elena Polyakova, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D. “Any company interested in a freestanding, stable, ultralight, highly conductive material that can flex with their product and fit into any space, will be interested in this innovation.”

This revolutionary product preserves all the remarkable properties of graphene foam such as superior electrical, with an added remarkable flexibility and ease of handling in an extremely lightweight and highly porous architecture.

“Graphene Flex Foam is an excellent substrate candidate in the manufacture of electrodes of lithium-ion batteries.” said Daniel Stolyarov, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D. “Wearable electronics is an obvious application as the electronics, sensors and conductive properties will all need to be flexible with the wearable material. “We also believe that this innovative product has a bright future for the next generation of flexible batteries and supercapacitors. Graphene Flex Foam offers energy storage as well as catalyst support in numerous organic synthesis reactions, gas sensors, flexible and ultrasonic acoustic device fabrication.”

The product will be available through Graphene Supermarket(r), an e-commerce site operated by Graphene Laboratories. Graphene 3D is currently acquiring Graphene Laboratories as a wholly-owned subsidiary (see new release dated August 24, 2015).

Angstron Increasing Graphene Production From 300 to 1000 Tonnes

During remarks at GrapChina 2015 in Qingdao, China, Dr. Bor Jang, chief executive officer and co-founder of Angstron Materials Inc. (AMI) unveiled a two-pronged plan he says will raise production capacity and lower pricer, jump starting market growth.

“We are ramping up production of graphene from 300 metric tons a year to 1000 metric tons a year in 2016,” says Jang. “Inability to source commercial scale quantities of graphene has historically hampered the growth and implementation of graphene-enabled and graphene-enhanced applications such as next-generation energy technologies, composites, water treatment, and corrosion protection. Increased production means we can bring market costs down too, giving companies previously priced out of the graphene market access to the material’s unique performance advantages.”

PEN Inc. (OTCQB:PENC) Develops Graphene-Based Product for Use in Medical Imaging

PEN Inc. (OTCQB: PENC) (“PEN” or “the Company”), a global leader in enhanced performance products enabled by nanotechnology to solve everyday problems, today announced the launch of a new graphene-based product for use in the production of nuclear pharmaceuticals used as diagnostic imaging biomarkers. Patients are given these pharmaceuticals when undergoing Positron Emission Tomography (PET) which is a molecular imaging system that provides clinicians detailed information about diseases such as cancer, neurological disorders and cardiovascular disease.

The new product is a thin carbon foil made of layers of graphene for use in cyclotron accelerators that produce nuclear pharmaceuticals. Developed at the Company’s Applied Nanotech Inc. subsidiary in Austin, Texas, the new graphene foils were part of a DOE Phase II SBIR effort to develop carbon foils for next generation ion beam accelerators. The graphene foils can serve as either stripper foils or extraction foils, both of which are integral to the operation of ion beam accelerators.

“Our new graphene foils are a perfect example of how Applied Nanotech is leveraging research supporting U.S. government priorities into new business opportunities,” said Dr. Scott Rickert, CEO of PEN Inc. Dr. Richard Fink, President of Applied Nanotech noted: “Our team has over 15 years of experience and know-how in the field, including our US Patent No. 6,819,034 that describes the application of graphene in the form of carbon flakes.”

New graphene based inks for high-speed manufacturing of printed electronics

A low-cost, high-speed method for printing graphene inks using a conventional roll-to-roll printing process, like that used to print newspapers and crisp packets, could open up a wide range of practical applications, including inexpensive printed electronics, intelligent packaging and disposable sensors.

Developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge in collaboration with Cambridge-based technology company Novalia, the method allows graphene and other electrically conducting materials to be added to conventional water-based inks and printed using typical commercial equipment, the first time that graphene has been used for printing on a large-scale commercial printing press at high speed.
