We recognize planarTECH as a leader in the graphene industry and looking forward to using its international network to enhance our own sales efforts starting with a revolutionary bullet-proof vest.”

— Ted P. Thirapatana, Director of IDEATI states

CAMBRIDGE, UNITED KINGDOM, April 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — UK-based planarTECH (Holdings) Ltd (“planarTECH”) is pleased to announce an agreement with Thailand-based IDEATI Co., Ltd. (“IDEATI”) to market and distribute its 2AMTM line of graphene-enhanced bullet-proof vest and ballistic plate products for body armour.

According to a recent report from market research firm Grand View Research, Inc., “The global body armor market size is expected to reach USD 3.0 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. The evolution of warfare has largely become asymmetric in nature and includes counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency. Similar scenarios exist in the law enforcement sectors, wherein felons, criminals, and law offenders are capable of fatally injuring responding officers, thus necessitating the demand for body armor equipment.”

IDEATI’s 2AMTM products are now in mass production for delivery to the Royal Thai Army, which has certified the products per National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standards. International testing is now underway. Minimum order quantity is 1,000 units with a lead time of 90 to 120 days.

2AM™ material is a patent-pending Graphene+UHMWPE (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight PolyEthylene) composite that leverages the strength enhancing characteristics of graphene to create ultra-lightweight body armour. 2AMTM product A-10418, for example, is currently the thinnest (20mm) and lightest (1.8kg) NIJ Level IV standalone plate available on the market. Moreover, the addition graphene to the composite can reduce backface deformation to just 11.3 mm.

Patrick Frantz, Founder & CEO of planarTECH commented,

“planarTECH has been involved in the development of 2AMTM technology from its inception and we’re very pleased to see that it has finally achieved commercial viability and become a commercial product for sale in the market. We want to support the sales of this technology through our own networks and are already actively engaging potential customers in the USA, UK, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, India and China. We also believe that this technology has other applications beyond personal body armour, which we are currently exploring.”

Ted P. Thirapatana, Director of IDEATI states,

“We are very proud to have co-developed this cutting-edge graphene technology in Thailand and that our 2AMTMlight-weight bullet-proof material for ballistics and high-impact applications is now ready for sale in the global market. We recognize planarTECH as a leader in the graphene industry and we’re looking forward to using its international network to enhance our own sales efforts starting with a revolutionary bullet-proof vest.”

About planarTECH

planarTECH, founded in 2014, primarily supplies Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) equipment for the production of graphene as well as other emerging 2D materials.

ZAF Energy Systems’ Receives a US Patent #10,511,059 ‘Alkaline Pouch Cell with Coated Terminals’

ZAF Energy

ZAF will integrate this novel alkaline pouch cell design with its Nickel-Zinc (Ni-Zn) chemistry to produce a high specific energy, customizable battery.

Nickel-zinc pouch cells are going to allow us to compete in these markets where lithium-ion energy density is required, such as directed energy weapons.”

— Randy Moore, ZAF’s President & CEO

JOPLIN, MISSOURI, US, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — ZAF Energy Systems Inc. (ZAF), a developer of next-generation zinc battery technologies, has received a US patent titled “Alkaline Pouch Cell with Coated Terminals.” ZAF will integrate this novel alkaline pouch cell design with its Nickel-Zinc (Ni-Zn) chemistry to produce a high specific energy, customizable battery that can be used in applications previously not thought possible with traditional Ni-Zn designs.

According to Dr. Adam Weisenstein, Chief Technology Officer at ZAF Energy Systems and inventor of US Patent #10,511,059, “We are now able to combine ZAF’s incredible advancements in the Ni-Zn chemistry with a robust, lightweight, and highly customizable pouch cell design. ZAF now has the opportunity to offer an aqueous technology capable of >100 Wh/kg, which can provide a solution in markets where a rechargeable, inexpensive, high energy density, and safe technology has been sought after for years.”

Ni-Zn batteries have excellent intrinsic properties, including high power, long cycle life, low life-cycle cost, and low environmental impact. The breakthroughs achieved by ZAF combine this patented Ni-Zn pouch cell with a proprietary electrolyte and zinc electrode formulation that greatly reduces zinc electrode migration. These improvements permit long cycle life along with high specific energy and power in a system with maintenance-free operation. ZAF has demonstrated the exceptional performance of the Ni-Zn chemistry in its G31 battery, which has a specific energy of 69 76 Wh/kg and has performed more than 700 cycles at 100 percent depth of discharge (DOD) and many thousands of cycles at lower DOD. ZAF has demonstrated 110 Wh/kg in pouch cells and projects to increase the specific energy to 120 Wh/kg, which allows ZAF to compete with lithium-ion technologies without the safety concerns and complicated battery management systems that add significantly to the total weight of the system.

“We recently formed a subsidiary Æsir Technologies to service our aerospace and defense customers,” said Randy Moore, ZAF’s President & CEO. “Nickel-zinc pouch cells are going to allow us to compete in these markets where lithium-ion energy density is required, such as directed energy weapons, and there are serious concerns about safety.”

About ZAF Energy Systems, Inc.

Incorporated in 2011 and with locations in Bozeman, Montana and Joplin, Missouri, ZAF Energy Systems develops and commercializes next-generation zinc battery technologies that use sustainable, non-toxic materials and can be safely and easily recycled. Its breakthrough battery technologies include nickel-zinc, zinc-air, and rechargeable hybrid aqueous battery chemistries. ZAF’s rechargeable batteries provide long-life and economical solutions in a safe package for a variety of applications. For more information, visit: www.zafsys.com
