Integral’s ElectriPlast™ Meets Another Milestone for 2012 Automobile

BELLINGHAM, Wash.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ITKG) (“Integral”) (http://www.electriplast.com/), an emerging leader in electrically conductive plastics, announced today that parts made from its ElectriPlast™ pellets have met the next testing milestones, toward final approval for use in a 2012 model year car, for a prestigious European automaker.

This development follows Integral’s announcement on October 14, 2010, that they had shipped ElectriPlast™ pellets, to one of the world’s leading automakers, through a Tier 1 automotive supplier, for the prototype and development of production sample parts. The automotive supplier has notified Integral that they have successfully molded the parts with ElectriPlast™ and the parts have met all the required electrical, structural, and physical specifications. The ElectriPlast™ parts underwent and passed several tests, including seal test for pressure and fluid and vibration testing.

In a related and significant development, Underwriters Laboratories (“UL”) approval was given to the ElectriPlast™ parts for their electromagnetic compatibility (“EMC”), and this Tier 1 supplier has ordered more ElectriPlast™ pellets for the production of additional sample parts.

Upon completion of the project, the ElectriPlast™ parts will replace metal parts used to shield the car’s power electronics and will be deployed on a global platform. The ElectriPlast™ parts provide a nearly 50% weight savings over the metal parts currently being used, while also providing superior RF shielding properties.

“Our excitement grows as we meet each milestone,” said William Robinson, CEO of Integral. We have long known that ElectriPlast™ was special, which the auto industry has now confirmed. ElectriPlast’s™ unique combination of light weight, flexible and low cost manufacturing and superior electrical shielding has gotten the attention of this Tier 1 supplier, which already has begun to include our material in its new designs.”

Meeting these mechanical and electrical requirements is a major step towards final approval of ElectriPlast™ for use in one of the world’s leading automakers. It’s also a major step toward establishing a broader foothold in the automotive industry where the opportunities for manufacturers to benefit from the weight savings and superior electrical performance of ElectriPlast™ is virtually limitless.

ElectriPlast™ can replace metal in a multitude of parts, ranging from battery covers, connectors and fuses to shielded plugs and connectors. By utilizing ElectriPlast™ for shielding applications alone, manufacturers are able to reduce the weight of a vehicle by as much as fourteen pounds, while improving electrical shielding performance and reducing the parts’ cost and shipping weight. The Company is developing other applications for ElectriPlast™ that will provide further weight reductions.

Integral Technologies

Integral Technologies, Inc. (http://www.electriplast.com/) is the developer of an innovative electrically conductive resin-based material called ElectriPlast™, a highly conductive recipe that can be molded into virtually any shape or dimension associated with the range of plastics, rubbers, and other polymers. Integral Technologies is an emerging leader in the development and application of next-generation conductive plastic materials. The company currently has 50 issued US patents relating to the composition, manufacture and application of their ElectriPlast™ technology, and they continue to develop and protect new intellectual property. The company was recently cited by ipCapital Group, (http://www.ipcg.com/) as the indisputable IP leader in resin-based materials. Their IP consists of ElectriPlast™ and multitudes of different applications pertinent to a wide variety of industries. No assurances can be given that all patent applications will be approved; however, to the extent that patents are not granted, they will continue to attempt to commercialize these technologies without the protection of patents. Various examples of industries where ElectriPlast™ can be used are automotive, defense, antennas, shielding, lighting, circuitry, switch actuators, resistors, and medical devices. The company is currently introducing these new products and ElectriPlast™ technology on a global scale.

After several years of empty promises, I'm as skeptical as anyone. But at least this release has (or should i say gives the illusion of) a more tangible feel to it.

I don't feel the need to go on about previous disappointment or find reasons to be negative about an investment i've decided i'm in for the long haul anyway. I remain cautiously optimistic. Now PLEASE follow this up with a purchase order...
