ElectriPlast: Market Analyst See Stock's Price Potential Rise...




Analyst see stock's price potential

upwards of $1.25 in the near future…

Speculation rules the world; it is what the market place has always been based on…


To speculate is one way of casting one’s fortunes on the ever changing landscape of a growing stock market, but when that speculation is based on tangibles…hard analysis, based on hours of interviews, company visits, a review of the books and pointed meetings with clients and partners – well then speculation takes a hard turn toward the realm of solid possibility.


In this case, ElectriPlast (EP) has had two ardent followers, both of whom have chased through the closeted ghosts surrounding the ElectriPlast potential, and Integral Technologies (OTCBB: ITKG), the company which holds the reins on this intellectual property (IP). What they found is what many of you had already known. There is more than a germ of truth and validity behind this disruptive technology, and both its future, and the untapped potentials are explosive.


So, a little bit more about these followers. A number of them are journalist published by Seeking Alpha.com, a stock market news & financial analysis platform, which, like its namesake, seeks out strong candidates in varying marketing fields to cover. Somehow, we came on the radar of some of their journalist contributors’, and since then --apparently liking what they saw in the ElectriPlast story and in the character of those managing the corporate side of the business-- they made a special project of tracking and drafting articles on the Integral team and the EP IP’s progress into the multitude of markets. This will apparently continue as these markets begin to benefit from Integral’s marketing transition, and the EP’s product transition into the practical consumer realm.


Another market follower is an analyst from ZACK’s who has been spotlighting EP’s progress and potential for a while now. Recent analytical estimates (as observed here on the ZACKs website) see ITKG’s stock price striking upwards of the $1.25 point in the near future, with the possible potential for higher price targets in the future as more news is made on EP’s marketplace acceptance and its materials’ expansion into industrial and consumer goods becomes more pronounced.

ElectriPlast: Something New Under the Sun...




Integral Announces New Conductive

Plastics Materials


By: PRNewswire,
Oct 20, 2014


CANTON, Mich., Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTC-BB: ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging light weighting leader and its wholly owned subsidiary, ElectriPlast Corp, announced the exciting development of two new materials. These materials keep Integral well in front of the industry performance curve. The focus of these new materials is the high performance shielding market and applications that will utilize ElectriPlast as a conductor. These new products will be protected by existing patents, with additional opportunities to add to Integral's IP portfolio from innovations achieved during product development.


The first material is a lightweight, high strength conductive material with an inner core of un-plated 12K and 24K carbon fiber, the second material is a highly conductive material using copper plated carbon fiber ("CuC"). Both materials can be formulated with most base resins, including ABS, PA66, PBT, PC, and PP. Technical information will be made available on the new materials in the next few weeks, at which time orders will be accepted for them.

"These new products are a continuation of our product portfolio expansion to meet our customers' growing needs," stated Mo Zeidan, ElectriPlast's Chief Technology Officer. "Selecting the right ElectriPlast pellet is critical in creating a solution for a successful application and these two new products provide additional options." The unplated carbon fiber pellet is a lower cost solution for applications requiring lightweight, EMI shielding, specifically consumer electronics products where shielding is critical, but also require strong, lightweight materials for mobility purposes. Depending on the loading of the carbon fiber to resin, attenuation ranged from 30dB at 30Mhz to nearly 55dB at 3 Ghz with wall thickness between 1mm to 3mm. Higher loading of carbon fiber will increase the shielding effectiveness. "For those applications where cost is a major driver, including consumer electronics, this product is the perfect mix of performance and price," stated Zeidan.


Increased requirements for light weighting and resistance to harsh environments have created an opportunity for highly conductive polymers to replace metal conductors in future applications. "Polymers capable of carrying high current with low ROA did not exist and our focus has been on creating material formulations, product processes and product interfaces to enable functional electric heaters, highly conductive traces and grounding planes," stated Slobodan ("Bob") Pavlovic, Vice President Engineering for ElectriPlast. "Different formulations were tested with continuous current ranging from 1A to 100A resulting in product temperatures well below heat deflection temperatures of selected polymers. We see great opportunities for this product line in the area of integrated heaters, ground planes, 3D PCB's, and integrated antennas. In parallel with material development, our applications engineering team is developing design solutions, making and testing prototypes to prove the technology and create product design to meet customer specifications."

ElectriPlast: The Asian Connection Expands...




Integral Offers Brief Update

on Recent Asian Events.



By: PRNewswire,
Oct 10, 2014

Just a quick note before reading: Words regarding 'Integral Asia', and the newly promoted 'Chairman' of that branch, Mr. Gene Song, have been reported & shared in previous blog issues. Read more on that here.

This said, it appears that the offices' Asian outreach project is beginning to reap major dividends and in-roads to the consumers product, and manufacturing markets in Asia hand-over-fist. Now the truly 'NEW' news centers on Mr. Feng Xiaowei, and his contacts in the manufacturing, educational and government arenas, and his connections and activities in Beijing and throughout China-at-large... I have a strong feeling that this will not be the last that we hear from, or about this gentleman...

Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTC-BB: ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging light-weighting leader and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., announced today that its Asian molding partner Chang Rim Eng Inc. ("Chang Rim") has successfully completed its prototype phase for a motor casing for the automotive industry. "This is a major milestone for us, as we have been exploring the use of conductive plastics in Asia and this is the first opportunity we have had to implement a product using the ElectriPlast technology. We have tested and trial molded many different conductive plastics from the US and Europe and found ElectriPlast to be the most effective for our applications under development," stated Won-Hyun Kwon, Chang Rim's President. "We are in the process of providing a large number of final test units to our customer and expect contract award by end of this year." Chang Rim has been closely involved with the development of the motor casing shielding application, including material support, molding trials, testing and validation efforts.


Chang Rim is a specialty molder based in Daegu, South Korea focusing on high margin plastic injection molded products for a variety of industries in addition to automotive, including consumer and industrial products. "We have been assisting Chang Rim to select the ideal ElectriPlast compound of resin and fiber for their applications," stated Mo Zeidan, ElectriPlast's CTO.
