ElectriPlast Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ITKG) (“Integral”), and makers of the ElectriPlast™ line of electrically conductive resins, announced today the sponsored launch of The Conductive Plastics Forum, an online forum to promote the research, development and commercialization of electrically conductive plastics, resins and polymers. The forum, www.conductiveplastics.org, promotes discussion, consultation and advise from industry professionals around the world who have interest in advancing concepts, ideas, applications and designs for conductive resins and polymers.

“This is an emerging technology and The Conductive Plastics Forum is a great venue in which to exchange ideas, educate and promote the adoption of conductive plastics,” commented Herbert Reedman, ElectriPlast CEO. “Forums are the equivalent of on-line classrooms or think tanks; a place to collaborate, learn and grow as an industry.”

Conductive plastics, once thought to be an impossibility, are rapidly gaining attention from every corner of industry for their ability to replace conventional metal or aluminum components with electrically conductive light weight plastics while reducing component weight by 40 to 60%.

Applications for conductive plastics include everything from wire and power electronics, to shielding, antennas, capacitors and medical devices. Interested industries include consumer electronics, aerospace, military, automotive, lighting, heavy industry and life sciences as designers and engineers look for ways to make their products lighter, more portable or more fuel efficient.

“Our hope is to help foster a thriving on-line community of design, manufacturing, teaching and engineering professionals who share our vision for emerging conductive plastic technologies so that together, we expand knowledge and grow as an industry,” said Reedman.
Interested parties are invited to join the online Conductive Plastics Forum at http://www.conductiveplastics.org.

ElectriPlast has been constantly innovating in the conductive resins field since it received its first patent in November 2001 for engineering a highly conductive plastic for antenna applications. ElectriPlast now manages what is said to be the most comprehensive patent library in the conductive plastics space.

Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: ITKG) (“Integral”), makers of the ElectriPlast™ line of electrically conductive resins, announced today the formation of ElectriPlast Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Integral which will function as the operating entity responsible for the commercialization, sales and marketing of ElectriPlast™ Integral's patented line of conductive plastics. The newly formed entity, based in Philadelphia, will be directed by Herbert Reedman, a former automotive retail executive and recently appointed member to Integral's board, who will act as President and CEO of the newly formed ElectriPlast Corporation.

"This is a strategic and very positive move for Integral," states Bill Robinson, Chairman & CEO of Integral. "We are seeing accelerated demand in electrically conductive resins and we want to take full advantage of our position in this emerging market." In making the announcement, Reedman will take full command and control of Integral's coveted line of conductive resins which includes over 80 blends and is said to be the most comprehensive line of conductive plastics in the industry.

"Under the ElectriPlast corporate banner we are a company with a single purpose and a central focus," said Reedman. "Clearly we know who we are, industry will know who we are and our message will be clear; we manufacture and market the industry's most comprehensive line of conductive plastics. That is our specialty, our sole focus and will prove to be our competitive advantage as we continue to introduce new products into the marketplace."

The announcement of the new ElectriPlast Corporation follows Integral's most recent product launch of ElectriPlast™ EP-CF/66, a polyamide (PA66) and nickel plated carbon fiber composite and the latest in the line of ElectriPlastT™ conductive resins brought to market by Integral.

Applications for ElectriPlast™ conductive plastics include everything from wire and power electronics, to shielding, antennas, capacitors and medical devices. Interested industries include consumer electronics, aerospace, military, automotive, lighting, heavy industry and life sciences as designers and engineers look for ways to make their products lighter, more portable or more fuel efficient.

Integral Technologies has been recognized as "One of the 50 Best & Brightest Companies" by MBD Capital, while ElectriPlast™ has been recognized as "Best of What's New" by Popular Science and "Best Innovation" by Innovations International.

Integral Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB.ITKG) (“Integral”) (www.electriplast.com), an emerging leader in electrically conductive plastics, announced today that ElectriPlast™ has been designed into a device for a military application by one of Integral’s licensees. Final testing and trials are expected to be completed by the end of 2010.

On May 27, 2010, Integral announced a license agreement with this licensee, a leading provider of system solutions with extensive technical and engineering content serving aerospace/defense, telecommunications, medical and other international high technology niche markets.

William Robinson, CEO of Integral said, “This design win is a result of our collaborative efforts with this licensee over the last several months for optimum uses of ElectriPlast™. This particular use of ElectriPlast™ is just one of several applications for which the license was granted. As this relationship continues to expand we expect this licensee to utilize ElectriPlast™ in its other niche markets.”

Robinson CEO went on to say; “We have made significant progress this year largely because of the progress of our licensing partners to incorporate ElectriPlast™ into their designs, as the solution to some of their engineering challenges. As we continue to work with these companies, we anticipate an acceleration of the uses of ElectriPlast™ in electro active shielding and conductive devices. It is especially gratifying to see the defense industry embrace our technology because the uniqueness of ElectriPlast™ -- its lightweight and design flexibility, while providing superior shielding -- is ideal for numerous military applications. Along with our recent design wins in the auto industry, this demonstrates growing market acceptance of ElectriPlast™.”

As ElectriPlast™ gains greater market acceptance, the continued use of license agreements will be a key in the growth and development of the product. ElectriPlast™ allows a design engineer the utmost freedom in designing new products or enhancing current designs. Through Jasper Rubber, Integral’s manufacturing partner, Integral can work with customers who do not have the equipment to do the necessary molding or extruding. At all stages, Integral can assist in the design and review of manufacturing applications and process optimization to meet whatever may be the precise specifications. Electrical and mechanical testing of ElectriPlast™ components and applications can then be carried out, followed by customer training and service for design and implementation. Integral also can form joint ventures to co-develop applications for the ElectriPlast™ pellet, as it has with other companies.

Integral continues to negotiate with many other companies to complete additional licenses of its patented ElectriPlast™ Technology.
