Calverton, NY -- Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) ("Graphene 3D”) has announced commercial release of two new additions to the G6-Epoxy™ product line of advanced adhesive materials. This product line includes innovative carbon-silver adhesive materials that are built on technology that has been developed by the Company's Industrial Division during the last four months. These new epoxies are highly electrically conductive adhesives with a proprietary formula based on the combination of graphene and silver fillers and other additives. The Company has recently filed a provisional patent application to secure the intellectual property rights related to this formulation.
Properties of New Additions
- The proprietary formulation of these epoxies allows their electrical conductivity to be at the same level as existing commercial products with a substantially reduced content of silver.
- Reduced silver content not only makes the formulations less expensive but also helps to improve their mechanical properties and ease of processing of the adhesive thereby making the compositions based on this formulation more attractive for variety of applications.
The two newest compositions for the Company's G6 Epoxy product line (G6E-NS10 and G6E-NS11) have respective volume resistivity of ≤0.005 Ω·cm and ≤0.0007 Ω·cm and are now being offered for sale. The Company welcomes commercial inquiries.
Applications of G6 Products
The Company's G6 products are included in the Electrically Conductive Adhesives (ECA)
category, also known as cold solder. ECAs are considered to be a replacement for traditional tin-lead solders and are widely used in a number of manufacturing processes including: assembly of photovoltaic devices (solar panels), packaging LCD and OLED displays, as well as mounting LED and heat sensitive electronics. The ECA market was estimated to be $1.2 Billion USD in 2015 (according to IDTechEx). Advancements in the industries of flexible electronics, curved screens and in-mold electronics should fuel further growth of the market for ECAs.
