Graphene 3D Lab Co-CEO Announces New Graphene/Carbon Fiber Based Filament at International Graphene Conference
|November 7, 2016 --Calverton, NY -- Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that its Co-CEO, Dr. Elena Polyakova, will unveil a new product developed from the G6-ImpactTM material while presenting tomorrow at the Graphene Malaysia 2016 Conference. The Graphene Malaysia 2016 Conference is featuring talks by key leaders in graphene from both academia and industry. The conference is an excellent platform for industry engagement as well as for sharing new insight across the graphene field. |
Dr. Polyakova will highlight in her speech some of the recent measurements performed by an independent material characterization laboratory on the G6-ImpactTM material. These measurements indicated that upon the addition of the nanofiller compound, the stiffness of the material has improved by 300%, and the impact strength by 100%, as compared to the original polymer matrix.
The new Graphene/Carbon Fiber based FDM filament will be marketed as "G6-ImpactTM filament". The G6-ImpactTM filament will feature semi-rigidness prints with outstanding vibration damping and shock absorbing properties. The G6-ImpactTM filament will be targeted towards engineers and professional 3D printing users interested in the areas of vibration damping, thermoformed parts, and printing models or prototypes for use in the automotive, construction, robotics, or aerospace industry.
"This is one of our most prolific product announcements of the year. The G6-ImpactTM Filament will be the fourth filament that our team has developed and released in 2016." commented Elena Polyakova, Co-CEO of Graphene 3D. "I am honored to be invited as a speaker to the Graphene Malaysia 2016 conference and to have the opportunity presenting our latest achievement to such a prestigious audience."
"Our proprietary technology allows for nanocomposite structuring to formulate the G6-Imact material. This is vital in our efforts to expand the offerings of this material. The G6-Imact material can now be used to create models or prototypes as a 3D printing filament but also can be used in mass manufacturing for thermoforming or injection molding." added Graphene 3D co-CEO Daniel Stolyarov. "Our company mission is to offer a variety of materials as tools to be used in additive manufacturing and other sorts of various high tech fields. The G6-ImpactTM filament could provide a solution for shock and vibration mitigation, a critical problem facing the additive manufacturing today."
The G6-ImpactTM filament will be commercially available for desktop FDM/FFF 3D printers in the size of 1.75 mm at 350 grams per spool and distributed through e-commerce sites www.blackmagic3d.com and www.graphene-supermarket.com.
