American Graphite Technologies Inc. Announces Independent 3rd Party Graphene/Bucky Paper Test Results From CTI Nanotechnologies LLC
LAS VEGAS, NV-(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2013) - American Graphite Technologies Inc. (“AGIN” or the “Company”) (OTCBB: AGIN) and (BERLIN: A8G) (WKN:A1KBDQ/ISIN:US02640K1079) is pleased to announce it has received independent test results in regard to its project with CTI Nanotechnologies LLC (“CTI”).
CTI Nanotechnologies LLC (CTI) continues its development work on its hybrid bucky/graphene paper formulations and advanced coating technology and has made pre-production quality, highly conductive, flexible and mechanically stable self-supporting membrane samples consisting of assemblies of carbon nanotubes (CNT’s), and graphene nano-platelets (GNP’s) refined from mined graphite and other nano components. Independent analysis has confirmed that the materials are conductive, stable and processable on an industrial scale. The results are an important step in determining CTI’s product’s physical properties. The baseline test results confirm the direction of their current research/testing and provides valuable insight into process refinement & optimization for specific applications.
The hybrid paper has a surface area of 116m²/g at 100um thickness with a reported resistivity of < 350 milli ohms at 100um thickness. Analysis was carried out EMSL of Cinnaminson, New Jersey and University of Vermont labs in Burlington, Vermont. Surface area is important as the amount of surface area will impact performance in an electrode, how well an area dissipates heat & the potential to be used in other applications. Resistivity values are a key metric regarding the conductivity of graphene paper for electronic purposes. The lower the resistivity and the higher the surface area, the better the performance will be for specialized electronic applications.
