Graphene 3D Lab Adds Graphene-Silver Epoxy to G6E-GSTM

 February 27, 2017 -- Calverton, NY -- Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) ("Graphene 3D"), a world leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of proprietary composites and coatings based on graphene and other advanced materials, announces an addition to its G6-EpoxyTM line of adhesives. This new product, G6E-GSTM epoxy, is a highly electrically conductive adhesive based on the combination of graphene and silver additives. It has a volume resistivity as low as 0.0001 Ω·cm and can be cured at room temperature or more rapidly at elevated temperatures. G6E-GSTM bonds well to a wide variety of substrates including metals, composites, ceramics, and glass.

The graphene filler enhances the electrical conductivity of the epoxy and prevents the propagation of cracks, improving the material's durability and fatigue resistance. This is especially important when bonding dissimilar materials subjected to rapid temperature variations. This feature improves impact resistance of the bond and also helps mitigate potential damage caused by vibration.

With the release of this product, the company is addressing the Electrically Conductive Adhesives (ECA) market which was estimated to be $1.2 Billion USD in 2015 (according to IDTechEx) and is projected to reach an estimated $2.53 Billion USD by 202,1 a CAGR of 8.48% from 2016 to 2021, according to the report by the MarketsandMarkets market research firm. ECAs are considered a replacement for traditional tin-lead solders and their fast growing demand is driven by the increase in the use of electronic components in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, 3D printing, consumer electronics, and medical devices.

Targeted sectors for the G6E-GSTM resins include: industrial, high-tech, educational and DIY. In industrial applications, surface-mounted electronic devices are the leading application segment and account for over 40% of the total market volume. Examples of such uses include terminal attachments to light emitting diodes (LEDs) and solar cells, hybrid microcircuits, including Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs), silicon integrated circuits, 3D antennas, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags and thin film electronics.

This conductive adhesive can also be used by the 3D printing community for the purpose of fabricating conductive traces and to bond the electrical components to 3D printed circuit boards and Arduino projects. Household applications include rear window defrosters and household electronic repair such as electronic toys and entertainment systems.
G6E-GSTM epoxy is available for immediate sale. The Company invites commercial enquiries for this product. For technical information, please visit G6-Epoxy.com
