EVANSVILLE, Ind., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTC-QB: ITKG) ("Integral"), an emerging light-weighting leader and its wholly owned subsidiary ElectriPlast Corp., today announced that Slobodan (Bob) Pavlovic, ElectriPlast's Vice President of Engineering will present at The Battery Show North America 2016 on Wednesday, September 14 at 11:00 a.m. EDT at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. Mr. Pavlovic's presentation will be "Examine the Application of Bi-polar Plate Technology to New Opportunities in the EV/HEV Automotive Market." The Battery Show 2016 will host the very latest advanced battery solutions for electric & hybrid vehicles, utility & renewable energy support, portable electronics, medical technology, military and telecommunications.
Integral also announced that Doug Bathauer, Integral's Chief Executive Officer will present at Conductive Plastics 2016 on Wednesday, September 28 at 11:10 a.m. EDT at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA. Mr. Bathauer will discuss ElectriPlast's "Development Of A Highly Conductive Polymer Bi-polar Plate For High Performance Lead-Acid Battery Applications."
ElectriPlast bi-polar plates are lightweight and easy to assemble into the bi-polar battery package, they can also be made as a 'drop-in' replacement for existing quasi bi-polar plates. ElectriPlast's bi-polar plate technology eliminates the use of top lead to connect the plates, reducing weight by over 50%. These unique characteristics allow the technology to be applied to multiple applications, including motorcycles, golf carts and forklifts. However, the uses for ElectriPlast plates are not limited to transportation applications, the bi-polar technology can also be applied to stationary applications, including flow batteries that are being developed to improve grid efficiency and for fuel cells for baseload power.
"ElectriPlast bi-polar plate technology is fully compatible with all new developments in battery chemistries and construction, leading to higher specific energy, longer lifetime, improved reliability and energy density properties. The Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium(ALABC) development of the lead acid battery properties, have improved the partial state of charge (PSOC) and dynamic charge acceptance(DCA) are directly applicable on the bipolar lead carbon batteries with ElectriPlast bipolar plates, said Slobodan Pavlovic. Our recent internal data shows that ElectriPlast based bipolar batteries, satisfies U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium LLC requirements set for 12V Start-Stop Vehicle Applications and for 48V Hybrid Electric Vehicle Applications for year 2020."
"Over the last several months we've continued to advance our patent pending ElectriPlast bi-polar plate technology," stated Doug Bathauer, CEO Integral. "With the cooperation of our technology partner, Advanced Battery Concepts, we've been able to accelerate our development. We are looking forward to sharing our technology at the upcoming events."
