July 22, 2016 (Source) — Troy Grant, President and CEO of ELCORA ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP. (TSXV: ERA) (OTCQB: ECORF) (FSE: ELM), (the “Company” or “Elcora”), is pleased to announce that that graphite nano-platelets are formed as a by-product from the laboratory of Elcora’s subsidiary, the Graphene Corp. This provides the company with another product line in a growing market.
The Graphene Corp (Canada) nano-platelets are between 100 nm and 5 micrometers in size and can be used in many of the same applications as graphene including fillers for rubber and plastics to increase strength, impart electrical conductivity or to increase the heat transfer of many composites. This is a by-product of the Graphene Corporation’s high yield graphene production. This material currently sells for between one and fifty dollars per gram depending on the quality. Production of nano-platelets is scalable depending on demand.
“This work is a positive step in Elcora’s goal of producing graphite added value products that utilizes the same marketing as graphene” said Troy Grant, Elcora’s President and CEO. “And is another positive step towards Elcora’s continued strategic development as vertical integrated graphite company.”
