ElectriPlast: A Catch-up on the Past Month...




A Recap of ElectriPlast

in the News...


By: culled from various sources,
May 18 to June 19, 2015


Through the Fog of War, Comes Light...

The state of things after the last Shareholder Conference Call...Well, my state is that I have a new computer out of the deal. My old Dell bit the dust on the night of the Call, and I have been scrambling to live life through my iPhone. Whether my fingers are too big, or my eyes too small -- either way that life is over as I received my new computer in the post the other day, and while the software is not the same as my old tricked-out system, I am slowly getting back to a semblance of normal again. Enough of my issues -- I promised a recap of what's been going on, and what benefits us as shareholders.

First, some of the key questions I had for the conference call were not raised. I think everyone was pretty much floored by a seemingly shift in goals and direction. After re-listening to the Conference Call again (it took a few times), it sunk in that this shift was not wholly unexpected, and not truly a shift -- and that assessment only came with hindsight and added questions on the matter. While the old (and still current) questions centered on the touted purchase order from Integral Partner "Chang Rim Eng", and the status of BASF's pending partnership -- the post Conference Call questions centered on the funding stream of the proposed Battery venture, and where we as long time shareholder's stood at reaping rewards for both loyalty and investment.

Well answers to the former questions are coming into focus -- apparently learning the lesson of speaking before acting, Mr. Bathauer chose to wait until the answers were ready to present themselves and allow the company's partners to respond in a manner best suiting their company's interests, schedule and timing. As a result, we are now seeing movement regarding Chang Rim Eng & BASF, and the rest of the story will unfurl in good time.

As for the latter question raised after the Conference Call, the one detailing where we as Shareholders stood after the incarnation of this new Battery venture. That answer too is now coming into shape.

In an earlier entry, I made the statement that "there is success written on this investment". That remains true, and putting feelings and emotions aside, all reading this at some level knows this. The company, and its CEO's goals are aligned with the shareholders, and that goal is for ElectriPlast to be a multi-fold industry disruptive success story. All that is needed on your part is to keep asking question, but also, to be patient enough to wait for that success story to unfold.

Stories coming to Light over the past month:


...regarding Integral's and Delphi's wire casing. Integral's looks very good...

The latest...on Hanwha is Gene Song's "things are looking positive" regarding Chang Rim and others.

...BASF's in the bag.

East Penn paid Integral for engineering assistance and services rendered.

...Chang Rim falls under Hanwha. Their motor casing is supposedly for a Chinese manufacturer, so...Mr. Feng is associated there.

...Global commercialization falls under BASF, which again, is in the bag.

Bi-polar battery plate’s patents have been filed and a suitable manufacturing partner is being sought. Rumor has it Integral expects monetary payment this year for bi-polar rights and according to Integral's website, they do not anticipate manufacturing bi-polar batteries to take anywhere near 3 years.

All these associations are ongoing and will produce results. Stay tuned.

ElectriPlast: 3rd Quarter Conference Call...




An Integral Town Hall

Let's talk...

past Successes, current Plans, Tactics, and

future Goals & Agendas...


By: PRNewswire,
May 11, 2015: 12:37 AM ET


No words of wisdom at this point, but still many questions...

In the shadow of BATTCON 2015...I will not squander this moment to post a diatribe leading a cheer for the ElectriPlast team's success. I --like many of you-- simply want answers to some serious questions about moves made, both in the past, and more recently. As investors, we each know that Integral (ITKG) has a hot ElectriPlast commodity on their hands. No matter how you slice it, the future looks bright for both ElectriPlast, and the entire field of conductive plastics as noted in a recent article by Digital Journal m.digitaljournal.com/pr/2503717. In this article, the analysts gave an assessment on the massive potential and prospect ahead. That said, we also know that Integral is using a number of key fortune 500 companies and their interest in ElectriPlast to launch the ElectriPlast potential, along with the ITKG stock to levels never before seen – don’t say it yet, but… Yes Virginia, there is a rear-view mirror featuring ITKG’s vacant spot on the Penny Stock OTCBB. With certainty, there are no doubts this will occur. Timing on the when is one of my key questions. Timing as in: BASF featured ElectriPlast's conductive materials at a recent trade show -- where are they in the timeline of making a firm commitment beyond a letter of intent (LOI) to ElectriPlast? Also, timing as in what's the status of the announcement in March 2015 about Integral Partner, Chang Rim Eng, and their first significant ElectriPlast order -- has this already happened? There's also timing, in the form of actions and impacts involving an even more recent announcement, where Mr. James Wise was inducted to the company's board -- could it be as Doug Bathauer stated in the introduction press release:

"There are large unaddressed needs in other vertical markets, specifically, Aerospace, Consumer, Power Storage, and related opportunities in the Department of Defense and the intelligence markets..."

Or...maybe there is a larger 'rest-of-the-story' here? A larger story involving the behind the scenes actions and activities that, once they come into focus, will have a real impact on the company's future growth and outreach. Aren't you interested in hearing that story? With the prospect of a Conference Call, light will shine on some of these questions, and others not printed here.

Conference calls are a chance for disclosure and transparency. That said, this is your time to pick-up a phone and talk, listen and consider. There is success written on this investment – reach out, ask your questions and be patience enough to wait for it all to unfold.

ElectriPlast: A week of News and Undercurrents...




Welcoming a New Board Member --

and Let's talk about BATTCON 2015,

and ElectriPlast’s Connection

with next Generation Batteries...


By: PRNewswire,
April 13, 2015: 08:45 AM ET


Alright, herewith yet another quick note before reading the news of the week:

First of all, Integral has brought on board a new board member, a Washington DC lobbyist. At first glance it is easy to see an angle here, but at second glance, I decided to take a look at, and ask questions about, the caliber of our new associate, Mr. James Wise. Jim has been described as a very, very wise man by some of the ElectriPlast Blog's (EB) sources who know better. His relationships with both the halls of government power and industry are well founded. Yes he is a DC lobbyist, but, like lawyers, mechanics, and investors -- there are truly good ones and exceptionally bad (as in soulless) ones. Personal politics aside, Jim, as more than a few trusted sources confirmed, is one of the good ones. He works to promote change for the right reasons, on the right side of issues. So, his announcement to the board is largely the focus of this press release, and the comments above are my two cents on it before hand -- but as you read the announcement, keep in mind the words "Access" and "Connections" as both have a place in the larger strategic picture...

Secondly, there was news that highlighted an event scheduled to take place later in May 2015. This event is called "BATTCON 2015". It is a convention where Batteries will rule the day, and in an article by Baystreet.ca "BATTCON Could Catalyze ITKG After BASF Exhibits ElectriPlast at Plastics Conference"

http://www.baystreet.ca/articles/stockstowatch.aspx?id=937.

Much of what is said within the Baystreet "BATTCON" article was previously mentioned in an 'EB' posting, but of course Baystreet's article offers new and insightful aspects. Rather than me spoon feeding this to you, instead, I will ask you go ahead and click the above link and stroll through their article. As a source of information, these folks have actually been there to kick the tires; review the books; visit with Integral's leadership in their offices, and visit with the engineers in Detroit. They have spoken with those companies which signed Letters of Intent (LOI), and are looking at this company, and the stories being generated, from a position of knowledge -- maybe, just maybe, they are doing a bit more than talking up the stock...maybe they are sharing a truth. That said, keep watching this blog, and more importantly, watch for news involving any of the four companies Integral is close to, and who are close to moving beyond a LOI with, Delphi, East Penn, BASF or Hanwah

ElectriPlast: On the Right Path and moving Forward...




BASF, a heavy-weight at 2015 NPE Expo,

presents an "ElectriPlast" Show & Tell…


by: PK, ElectriPlast Blog Publisher
March 27, 2015




Who will be the First to Sign...?


Just another quick note to share that between March 23-27, 2015, BASF attended the International Plastics show -- the NPE Expo 2015 held in Orlando, Florida.

While normally we focus largely on ElectriPlast exploits, I thought I would bring this event to light, for two reasons. Primarily because BASF and Integral Technologies share 'Letter of Intent' (LOI) with one another, and it appears that the defination of the term "intent" is turning into a fast-moving action word as far as this corporate partnership is concerned. But the second (item of interest) reason was because while this event attracts a number of interested industry players, this year's NPE, had a Doug Bathauer sighting... Doug Bathauer is the CEO of Integral Technologies, the owner of the ElectriPlast intellectual property. Friends of the ElectriPlast Blog (EB), are still looking for any background regarding his presence there, and any associated insights, or new deals to come...but for the time being, they've come up dry, so let's just put this sighting down to a possible sideline visit as he made a trip down to Disney.

One of the better exhibits at this year's NPE was the BASF booth. There it was reported that ElectriPlast products were present and on display. As a matter of fact, below is one of the BASF Brochures, which accompanied the presentation, and detailed some of their intentions toward ElectriPlast's future use. (See below.)







https://www.app-kits.com/Content/PublicDownload?identifier=951a995b-54cf-4fcc-a45f-663e9e3d3324


Another outlet chronicaling this years NPE Expo activities can be found at a site called: "The Molding Blog". In a review of this website, you will see a report by Doug Smock, dated 25 March 2015, which highlights BASF's presentation, and active engagement in the lightweight conductive plastics arena.

http://www.themoldingblog.com/2015/03/25/basf-takes-aim-at-shielded-plastics-opportunities/


Now while it is true, BASF and a number of other fortune 500 companies have, or are in the process of hitching their vast fortunes to the ElectriPlast star in the form of contractual Letter's of Intent. The real next step, and the one everyone should be watching for, in my opinion, falls in the category of serious commitment... Some of these LOI working relationships have become serious. To the point that solid deals leading to committed partnerships should soon be signed. And if this takes place, what will happen next??? The web link below offers a simple glimpse to the migration / application possibilities.

http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/2503717


And with that, All it takes is a leading Partner with a Game Plan. In the consumer world, the truth is, that ElectriPlast is not yet known, and this is where the 'risk' of investing today stands. Now, imagine as ElectriPlast's uses diversify, and it's application expands across a number of niche consumer markets & merchandising. Imagine the concept of ElectriPlast becoming a commonplace, real-world, known quantity.


The foundations for such a future are in place. They are sturdy and self supporting. The supply chain is now in place. It too is ready to accomodate a 'Global' demand. Once the various 'known' partnerships evolve from 'Letters of Intent' to true and formal agreements, then watch out.


This is the potential surrounding the ElectriPlast intellectual property and its myriad of applications, and when it becomes common knowledge, Integral Technologies, and those partners who set themselves up to corner various key markets, will each see themselves as winners...
