TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF
NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2015 /CNW/ - 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®, 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).
