Graphene 3D Lab Inc. Files Provisional Patent Application Related to 3D Printable Batteries
|Vancouver, British Columbia and New York, NY -- Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSXV: GGG) ("Graphene 3D" or the "Company"), a company developing advanced materials for 3D printing, has submitted a provisional application for a patent to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The application is related to recent innovations in the materials and methods of 3D printable batteries. |
3D printing, a manufacturing technology which has witnessed a surge in commercial interest due in part to recent progress in its production capabilities, is still in the early stages of development in regard to printing electronic devices. The ability to 3D print electrochemical devices, such as batteries and supercapacitors, will contribute to significant expansion in the commercial applications of 3D printing technology.
Daniel Stolyarov, CEO of Graphene 3D commented, "The application filed by Graphene 3D has the potential to play an important role in achieving the ability to print electronic devices due to the necessity of providing a power source. Expanding our IP portfolio in this area is an important step in keeping with Graphene 3D's primary goal of creating an ecosystem for 3D printing functional devices with advanced materials." He continued, "A 3D printed battery can be incorporated into a 3D printed object during the building process. In addition, 3D printed batteries have several advantages over traditional batteries. Their shape, size and specifications can be freely adjusted to fit the particular design of the device. Our batteries are based on graphene and can potentially outperform conventional batteries. Graphene 3D plans to perform live demonstrations of our 3D printed batteries."
