I am a retired US Government analyst, currently residing in Germany. I am also a shareholder in the company called Integral Technologies (OTCBB: ITKG), and have a desire to enlighten and share its great and still emerging story. I am well read, focused and appreciate challenging interactions which spark creativity and develop enlightenment. That is why I created the ElectriPlast Blog, and the reason I am here.

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

BASF, a heavy-weight at 2015 NPE Expo,

presents an "ElectriPlast" Show & Tell…

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.)


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.


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.


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...

I think your assessment is correct.

PK, I agree as well. So much of what has been happening has been done quietly, and for good reason. IMO, the partnerships are so important at this point, and at the end of the day, they drive the bus in terms of when an agreement can be announced. That's just the way it is when you invest in a small company with a new technology.

It's true, the engineers are going to have to hand-hold another of interested partnerships initially, but one thing not really discussed, but which is a truly big deal is -- is that (hand-holding) all that the Integral Engineering staff is doing?

I would readily say, not just no, but more -- that would be crazy to think of this is a big hug-fest.

Integral will work with anyone to test-bed the ElectriPlast possibilities, but consider this as a side aspect. When they provide their support to get a project off the ground free of charge, just how do they justify such an outlay of time, energy, manpower and effort?


There have been a tear of new ElectriPlast related patents over the past two years. As a new solution is generated, it is patented. The partner company might be benefiting from the light-weighting aspect, and cost savings overall, but Integral immediate payout is in cornering the patents on the process that got them and he partnering company to that point.

As the company continues down this commercializing path, more and more engineers will become familiar with the ElectriPlast material and its capabilities -- they will then be able to do it all themselves, and begin applying patents and owning the processes employed to make the EP material jump through those new hoops, but until then... While they still need the assistance of the Integral Engineering team the patents stay in and under Integral's control.

In the long run, patents are coin for the future. Long after ElectriPlast is being used in a myriad of commercial products, Integral will still be due a royalty from the material's use, application, or the processes used to mix, measure, or make it.

Oh, and by the way, this works for the almost 100 mixture solutions already in play.

When commercialization takes off, the company, and its shareholders futures will be bright, and will continue to grow even still brighter thanks to the residuals from patents...

That said, and before I run...

I also wanted to share the following recently released article on ElectriPlast (a result of a recent interview with Doug Bathauer)...

How will Electriplast become known when BASF doesn't even acknowledge it is called Electriplast

On 7 April, one of the Anonymous readers posed a question regarding BASF, and their showcasing of ElectriPlast without going out of their way to plaster their association with Integral Technologies (ITKG) or the ElectriPlast material over everything.

I would speculate were I to attempt an answer on this, and this is one of the reasons I have not even tried to fake-it. I mean, I know of the LOI and believed that I may have mentioned it either here or in past articles drafted or press releases (PRs) mirrored.

The association in fact, was pretty clear in the online material featured within the last EB blog entry.

Well, while this may not answer your question totally, it will have you re-think the question somewhat.

My question is when..?

Your new question might be, what else is coming down the pike (and maybe when..?

Take a read, and let me know what you (any of you actually) think...
