American Graphite Technology Signs Letter of Intent with European Institutes for Using Graphene in 3D Printing

Published on April 25, 2013 at 8:39 AM

American Graphite Technologies Inc. ("AGIN" or the "Company") announces that the Company has completed a letter of intent (LOI) with the National Academy of Science of Ukraine; National Science Centre; Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology ("KIPT"), Kharkov, Ukraine.

The scope of the collaboration will be to research the properties of graphene contained matter as working material for 3-D printing.

"I have been meeting with our collaboration partners at KIPT over the past week in Ukraine and I am very excited about the project that we are about to embark on," states CEO of the Company, Rick Walchuk. "We are currently finalizing the details and expect to release more information on the project shortly."

About 3-D Printing

A 3D printer can print an object layer by layer. 3-D products are created by the laying down of successive layers of material in a printer using digital technology, a process also known as "additive manufacturing."

Currently 3-D printers produce parts and prototypes that are now being used in a wide range of industries such as aerospace, automotive, construction and dentistry. The 3D printing market could soar to $8.4 billion in sales in 2025, from $777 million last year, fueled largely by the automotive, aerospace and medical markets, according to a new report by Lux Research.
