Integral Announces Launch of Hanwha L&C's ElectriPlast® Line



Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTC-BB: ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging leader in hybrid conductive plastics, and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced today that Hanwha L&C, a global high-tech materials maker based in South Korea, has launched its dedicated production line for ElectriPlast, Integral's patented line of hybrid conductive plastics.


"Integral and Hanwha L&C established a manufacturing base in South Korea because we both believe in the long-term strength of the ElectriPlast market in Asia," said Doug Bathauer, CEO of Integral. "Its strategic location will enable the supply of ElectriPlast to South Korea's consumer electronics industry, which is one of the largest in the world, as well as to China's world-leading auto market. Along with Hanwha L&C, we look forward to tremendous growth in these industries in the years to come, while we strive to provide ElectriPlast to customers across Asia. We expect ElectriPlast to become the predominate hybrid conductive plastic utilized in Asia."


In June 2013, Integral and Hanwha L&C signed a 10-year agreement that grants Hanwha L&C exclusive rights to sell distribute and manufacture ElectriPlast in South Korea, plus non-exclusive sales and distribution rights to ElectriPlast in Japan, Taiwan and China. Founded in 1965, Hanwha L&C develops and supplies global automakers with a variety of composite lightweight automotive materials. In 2012, Hanwha L&C entered the touch screen panel market, and it is now supplying key components such as ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) glass and ITO film for smart mobile devices.


Integral's proprietary line of non-corrosive, electrically conductive resin-based materials—ElectriPlast—is engineered to replace traditional metals such as steel or aluminum. Typically used for electrical and magnetic shielding applications in such industries as automotive, aerospace and consumer electronics, ElectriPlast can be molded into any of the infinite shapes and sizes associated with plastics, rubbers and other polymers while reducing component weight by 40% to 60%.

Integral Appoints James Eagan as New CEO of Subsidiary ElectriPlast...


James Eagan, co-founder of ORBCOMM LLC, appointed CEO of ElectriPlast™ Corp. -- Integral Focuses on New Detroit Tech Center and Ramp Up with Key Partners

Integral Technologies, Inc. ("Integral"), an emerging leader in hybrid conductive plastics, and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced today the appointment of Integral's Chairman of the Board, James Eagan, to the position of CEO of ElectriPlast Corp. Mr. Eagan replaces Herbert Reedman Jr., who has led the commercialization efforts for ElectriPlast over the past three years and will remain an adviser to Integral's Board of Directors.


"We are continuing our emphasis on expanding ElectriPlast Corp's technical and engineering capabilities," said Mr. Eagan. "Early last year, we developed a collaborative plan to enter new market segments with partners who have world-class manufacturing, distribution, and product development expertise. As we enter 2014, we are pleased to have executed on that plan. We are now even better positioned for the further commercialization of ElectriPlast with our BASF, Delphi Automotive PLC and Hanwha L&C relationships, coupled with our Detroit Tech Center."


Prior to joining Integral, Mr. Eagan held various roles with global provider of satellite telecommunication services, ORBCOMM, and its licensees. He co-founded ORBCOMM LLC and purchased from Chapter 11 all the assets—including 36 satellites and its global operations—from ORBCOMM Global, L.P., which had expended $600 million for its global network build out. As Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer in the new venture, he was responsible for developing a new business model, slashing costs and growing the subscriber base.


Continuing to expand key strategic relationships with BASF, Delphi Automotive PLC and Hanwha L&C, Integral recently announced the opening of its ElectriPlast Tech Center in Detroit, which provides facility upgrades for staff expansion, while adding resources allowing for greater internal testing, engineering and product development. The Detroit Tech Center's engineering staff has over 50 years of expertise and Integral plans to add to this team in the near future. With the opening of the Detroit facility, Integral subsequently announced that it expects to close its Fort Washington, Pennsylvania office at the end of January.


"These shifts in our corporate structure and resources better align us with our overall strategy, namely taking full advantage of the enormous resources and market presence of our partners," said Doug Bathauer, CEO of Integral. James' history of successfully introducing new technology to the market, plus his experience consummating international license agreements with manufacturing, distribution and reseller components are invaluable at this stage of our development. He most recently led us through the manufacturing and licensing agreement process with Hanwha L&C, and we are excited to see the further impact he will make leading the ElectriPlast team. I would like to thank Herb and his team for all their tremendous efforts over the years, and I look forward to continuing to work with him as an advisor to our Board."


"It is great to see our business vision for ElectriPlast taking shape", said Herbert Reedman. "These partnerships offer new opportunities and we are now well positioned to execute on these strategies. I can think of no better person to lead these efforts than James Eagan. I look forward to continuing my involvement with the company as an advisor to the Board"

Pioneer in Hybrid Conductive Plastics Boosts R&D and Customer Support Capabilities with Launch of an ElectriPlast Tech Center...


Integral Technologies, Inc. ("Integral"), an emerging leader in hybrid conductive plastics, and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced today the opening of its new Detroit Technology Center. The facility has been instituted to expand Integral's research and engineering capabilities, as well as enhance the company's applications development and technical support.


Since June of last year, Integral has signed a joint product development agreement with Delphi, a licensing agreement for sales and manufacturing with Hanwha L&C and most recently entered into an MOU with BASF, for the development of ElectriPlast as a lightweight shielding solution. The Tech Center offers engineering support and application development assistance to support these key relationships as well as Integral's growing customer base. It provides facility upgrades for staff expansion and additional resources that allow for greater internal testing, engineering and product development of ElectriPlast, Integral's line of proprietary hybrid conductive plastics.


"The opening of the Tech Center is driven by the rising demand for our technical expertise in conductive plastics from our customers," said Doug Bathauer, CEO of Integral. "This demand has been accelerating due to our recent relationships with Delphi, BASF and Hanwha L&C, and with the launch of our new facility, we are now in a much better position to deliver the superior technical support these world-class companies expect. Its strategic location, in Detroit is key toward Integral moving closer to the commercialization of ElectriPlast, as we remain confident that ElectriPlast will have a profound impact on the global automobile market and related industries."


Integral is the original researcher, developer and 100% owner of all intellectual property surrounding ElectriPlast, a patented line of non-corrosive, electrically conductive resin-based materials engineered to replace traditional metals such as steel or aluminum. Typically used for electrical and magnetic shielding applications in such industries as automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, cable and alternative energy, ElectriPlast can be molded into any of the infinite shapes and sizes associated with plastics, rubbers and other polymers, while reducing component weight by 40% to 60%.


"ElectriPlast is a highly specialized and customized material, and all of our clients require some level of engineering support and application development assistance to initially incorporate our unique technology into their products," said Mo Zeidan, Integral's Chief Technology Officer and head of the Tech Center. "We work very closely with our clients and we pride ourselves in our ability to offer unparalleled engineering support. The Tech Center now allows us to strengthen this support, as well as research and develop new and innovative ways to apply our technology, all under one roof."
