$GRAT Gratomic to Launch New Graphene Ultra Efficient Tires $DNI.ca $LLG.ca

  • Developed new Graphene Ultra Fuel Efficient Tires (GUET)
  • Certification and terrain testing targeted for completion in Q3, 2019
  • The automotive tire market is large and is expected to grow to 2.5 billion tires by 2022
  • The GUET tire market represents a very large vertical for Gratomic which the Company will be vigorously pursuing in 2019, and beyond

Gratomic Inc. (“Gratomic” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: GRAT) (CB81-FRANKFURT) a vertically integrated graphite to graphenes, advanced materials company is pleased to announce the development of Gratomic’s new Graphene Ultra Fuel Efficient Tires (GUET) with certification and terrain testing targeted for completion in Q3, 2019.
 

“Purely from a demand perspective, we have been pulled into a market which represents a very large opportunity for Gratomic. Simply put, our customers want what we have; high quality graphene. Not only are Hybrid Graphene enhanced tires fuel efficient, but they can also demonstrate better handling and longer life” commented Gratomic’s Chairman and Co-CEO Sheldon Inwentash. “The GUET tire market represents a very large vertical for Gratomic which the Company will be vigorously pursuing in 2019, and beyond.”
 

Gratomic recognizes the automotive tire market is large and is expected to grow to 2.5 billion tires by 2022. Gratomic looks to penetrate and disrupt the traditional means of tire production by providing graphene enabled GUET tires. To date, the global tire market has recognized that employing graphenes within tire treads, walls and the inner linings can make tires lighter, provide better grip and reduce rolling resistance to an extent that is not possible with existing tire compounds. On average, this would require 20 to 25 grams of graphene per tire. However, for the Industry, specification consistency and scaleability of supply have been limiting factors and to date have been the biggest constraints in commercializing Graphene.
 

Attributed to the right combination of geology at the mine and our processing partner, Gratomic strongly believes it can satisfy the supply demand of quality graphenes required for what the Company believes is the growing market demand for a new age economy tire. Gratomic is confident in its ability to deliver consistent quality and quantities of Graphenes to end users.
 

Gratomic has been able to achieve this through a unique collaboration agreement with its development partner Perpetuus Carbon Technologies who currently supplies substantial quantities of surface modified graphenes on a monthly basis to the tire industry through its Patented Plasma Process.
 

Ian Walters Director – Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited stated:

“Perpetuus’ investigative analysis and characterization has concluded that the Graphenes derived from the Gratomic mine are highly friable, more so than any other graphite tested for purpose by the Perpetuus Labs. The liberated graphenes when functionalized have demonstrated excellent processability. Initial application in a host of end uses has demonstrated excellent suitability for a range of products. Most noteworthy are the excellent results generated when the Hybrid Graphenes are included in elastomers for tire construction. Perpetuus looks forward to working with Gratomic to launch probably the first range of Graphene enabled ultra fuel efficient tires.”

 

Employing its dedicated facility for the patented Perpetuus plasma method Gratomic post plasma processing produces graphenes (less than 10 layers) of a high purity (CK 99.10%) derived from its Graphite Mine in Namibia.

  • Update on its previously announced Graphene development program with partner, Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited (“Perpetuus”)
  • Perpetuus undertook to build three specialized process tooling chambers (“Chambers”) to be used solely for processing Graphite from Gratomic’s Aukam Graphite mine in Namibia.
  • The first Chamber has passed the testing phase and is ready to process the Aukam sourced Graphite,
  • The second Chamber is presently under construction with the third to follow immediately thereafter.

 

Gratomic, is pleased to provide an update on its previously announced Graphene development program primarily targeted towards elastomer and polymer tire markets, launched with its European partner, Perpetuus Carbon Technologies Limited (“Perpetuus”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Perpetuus Advanced Materials.

As disclosed by Gratomic on April 22, 2018, Perpetuus and Gratomic executed a letter of collaboration pursuant to which Perpetuus undertook to build three specialized process tooling chambers (“Chambers”) to be used solely for processing Graphite from Gratomic’s Aukam Graphite mine in Namibia.

The first of such Chambers has passed the testing phase and is ready to process the Aukam sourced Graphite, the second Chamber is presently under construction with the third to follow immediately thereafter.
