August 31, 2020 – Ronkonkoma, NY – G6 Materials Corp. (TSXV: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) (“G6” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company has bolstered its intellectual property (“IP”) portfolio by securing various IP rights. G6 has filed a provisional patent application to secure its proprietary technology of manufacturing antiviral products. Further, the Company has received approvals from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) for a patent covering the technology of making graphene-based energy storage devices by additive manufacturing as well as a patent covering multisegmented 3D printing filaments. These are in addition to the patent covering a proprietary method of trifluoroketone production that was granted earlier this year. These additions to G6’s IP portfolio empower the Company to either develop the IP internally or leverage any or all of the rights with external parties, as appropriate.
The IP rights secured are complementary to one another and demonstrate the Company’s innovative approach. “Adding these four, diverse and valuable IP assets to our portfolio is a significant milestone for the Company as it creates a number of opportunities for G6 to pursue, both directly and indirectly,” said Daniel Stolyarov, President & CEO of G6. “We continue to execute on our core strategy of growing through research and development and we expect to continue on this path for the foreseeable future,” added Mr. Stolyarov. A summary of the four IP assets secured is provided below:
Antiviral Products: The Company secured the IP rights by filing Provisional Patent Application #63/021,996, entitled “Antiviral Graphene Oxide Air Filtration Device and Associated Methods”, with the USPTO on June 26, 2020. This patent application covers G6’s proprietary formulation of a graphene-oxide antiviral coating for HEPA air filters. The Company plans to use this technology to make air filtration products that help mitigate the outbreak of infectious viruses, with the plan to commercialize such products currently being developed by management.
Graphene Energy Storage: The USPTO recently granted G6 patent No. 10,727,537 entitled “Electrochemical Devices Comprising Nanoscopic Carbon Materials Made by Additive Manufacturing”. This patent covers a technology developed by the Company to formulate 3D printing materials that are suitable to make functional electrical energy storage devices.
Multisegmented 3D Printing Filament: Patent No. 10,611,098 was granted to G6 by the USPTO on April 7, 2020 and is entitled “Fused Filament Fabrication Using Multi-Segment Filament”. The patent covers the Company’s invention of a 3D printing filament comprised of multiple segments that enables the use of commercially available 3D printers to fabricate complex structures made of a variety of materials. This technology is useful in making functional devices that are meant to be operational immediately after being 3D printed, for example, electrochemical storage devices.
Method of TFK Production. Patent No. 10,472,313 was recently granted by the USPTO and is entitled the “Process for Synthesizing of Trifluoroketones”. The technology covered by this patent has been licensed by the Company to a pharmaceutical company that uses trifluoroketones to make an active drug ingredient that is currently under development.
