GRAFOID Introduces its Ion Selective GPURE Graphene Polymer Membrane for Lithium-Ion Battery Electrode Protection

A Focus Graphite Related Company Introduces a Novel Freestanding Nano-porous Membrane Technology to Extend Battery Life

KINGSTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 14, 2017) - Grafoid Inc., a Canadian graphene R&D, investment and technology licensing company announced today the development of its GPURE Graphene Polymer nano-porous membrane intended for next generation Li-Ion battery applications.
Grafoid's largest shareholder is Focus Graphite Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FMS)(OTCQX:FCSMF)(FRANKFURT:FKC), owner of the Lac Knife high-grade graphite deposit in Quebec. Focus Graphite holds two off-take agreements with Grafoid to supply it with high-purity graphite for graphene application commercialization with joint venture partners.
The GPURE graphene polymer membrane (GPM) technology is the seventh graphene-based companion to the company's expanding GPURE Platform of new, high performing, ultra-thin materials for diverse industrial applications.
The GPURE GPM product was developed as a chemically inert, freestanding membrane using graphene composites to test ion selectivity using both monovalent and divalent ions. Ion selectivity is a key requirement for a semi permeable membrane in a Li-ion battery structure.
By protecting the chemically sensitive electrode materials from unwanted chemical species GPURE GPM diffuses only energy harvesting monovalent ions such as Li+, Na+ etc. Conventional membranes lack such unique property.

Grafoid President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Economo described Grafoid's entry into the battery membrane market as a potentially important technological solution for improving battery life cycling.
"Our GPURE membrane innovations and inventions for next generation battery applications are intended to enhance performance, extend battery life and improve safety," Mr. Economo said.
Goldman-Sachs Equity Research in its September 27, 2016 report, "Charging the Future" estimated the global automotive separator market was worth approximately 600 million US$ in 2015, totaling around 0.5 billion m2 on a surface-area basis and rising to $1.5 billion by 2020. This number is expected to grow to 7 billion m2 by 2025, in line with the growth of gigawatt hours in automotive batteries.
On February 16, 2017 Grafoid unveiled its initial family of GPURE Platform membrane technologies spanning a range of scalable industrial applications requiring novel, disruptive solutions to create new products or enhance or supplant existing membrane technologies.
GPURE membranes include:
GPURE (A) - A high performing, free-standing membrane developed for water desalination applications
GPURE (B) - A stable, large area membrane developed for wastewater filtration suitable for very high temperature operating applications
GPURE (C) - A large area free-standing membrane developed for water filtration pre-treatment and may be suitable for use in gas separation applications and may be used as a lightweight component for automotive and sports equipment applications
GPURE (D) - A large area membrane that may be used for gas separation and sensing applications
GPURE (E) - A large area membrane intended for use in gas separation applications
GPURE (F) - May be applied as a graphene varnish for wood surfaces to protect against moisture, UV light and high temperatures

Grafoid - Advancing Graphene Technology to the next level with Mesograf

Many scientists and technologists around the world believe that the new super material, Graphene, will change the way we live, work and play.

As the advancement of Graphene and Nano Technology furthers science and changes the tech and business landscape around the world, small companies are becoming leaders.


One such company is 

Here is an Introduction from Dr. Gordon Chiu, Grafoid’s President and Chief Technology Officer

Grafoid’s investment leading to the breakthrough, bulk quality, few layer graphene standard, MesoGraf™ represents a defining moment; a turning point in both material science and in human history.
MesoGraf™ enables graphene application development solutions. Our top-down scalable product forms the basis for our commercial relationships and ultimately, lowers industrial application costs leading to graphene’s universal acceptance.
As a business, we invest both financial resources and intellectual capital to resolve issues leading to application and production cost mitigation. We see our solutions as a first step towards graphene’s standardization and ultimately, market monetization.
And when we look at our graphene discovery and invention, we see ourselves moving science to the next level – not only in energy storage and composites, but in the collaborative approach we’ve introduced to application development, our principal business.
Based upon results from our own investment in Singapore-based Graphite Zero’s proprietary process we foresee breakthroughs ahead from an increasing participation in an array of unique, pan-industrial developments.
Graphene’s discovery opens new frontiers for industry. Mesograf™ sets a new standard for quality. Grafoid, as the agent of change, bridges the gap between science and industry by eliminating risk.
MesoGraf™ sets the global standard for commercialized graphene.
Thank you.

IBC Advanced Alloys is Now an Approved Forging Supplier to Newport News Shipbuilding Ltd

FRANKLIN, INDIANA--(Marketwired - Sept. 19, 2016) - IBC Advanced Alloys Corp. (TSX VENTURE:IB) (OTCQB:IAALF) ("IBC" or the "Company") a leading beryllium and copper advanced alloys company, announces that it is now an "Approved Forging Supplier" with Newport News Shipbuilding ("Newport News"), a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries. 

 Newport News is the largest shipbuilding company in the U.S. and is the sole designer, builder, and re-fueler of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and one of two providers of U.S. Navy submarines.

The announcement marks the second such attainment by IBC of approved forging supplier status with a world-class shipbuilder in as many weeks.

 On September 13, IBC announced that it received "Approved Forging Supplier" status with General Dynamics' Electric Boat Division (see that press release here).

"Achieving approved forging supplier status with Newport News is another significant advance for IBC, and positions us to grow our forged products business," said Major General Duncan Heinz (USMC, ret.), President and CEO of IBC. "These qualifications are not easy to receive from world-class manufacturing concerns such as Newport News and Electric Boat, and I am very proud of our team for achieving these milestones."

IBC's qualification with Newport News positions the Company to provide forged product to Newport News through approved suppliers. The qualification was awarded after Newport News conducted due diligence of IBC's Copper Alloys Division facility in Franklin, Indiana.

Newport News builds the most advanced ships in the world using its expertise in nuclear propulsion, naval design, and manufacturing, and it is currently building the new Ford-class aircraft carriers and Virginia-class fast-attack submarines, and performing Refueling and Complex Overhaul (RCOH) on Nimitz-class aircraft carriers. With approximately $4 billion in revenues and more than 20,000 employees, Newport News has built more than 800 ships, including both naval and commercial ships.
