Integral Technologies, Inc.(ITKG-OTC:BB), an emerging leader in hybrid conductive plastics, announced today they will host global high-tech materials maker Hanwha L&C at Jasper Rubber Products, Inc., the US manufacturer of Integral’s proprietary ElectriPlast product line. The Hanwha visit, which will take place later this month, will allow for the exchange of Integral’s proprietary processes involved in the science and manufacture of ElectriPlast, marking a milestone toward the further execution of a major licensing and distribution agreement announced between the parties earlier this year.
Integral also reported that it has received the first installment payment from Hanwha for the initial license fee under the terms of the Agreement. “We thank Hanwha L&C for their swift efforts to bring ElectriPlast to the Asian markets and look forward to further building on the partnership,” said Doug Bathauer, CEO of Integral Technologies. “They are a top global supplier in both automotive and consumer goods materials. In ElectriPlast we have a versatile material that offers increased functionality and lightweight composition within numerous applications in these industries.”
Integral and Hanwha L&C recently signed a 10-year agreement granting Hanwha L&C an exclusive right to sell, distribute and manufacture ElectriPlast in South Korea. Additionally, Hanwha has acquired non-exclusive sales and distribution rights to ElectriPlast in Japan, Taiwan and China.
