11 February 2005

Pyrograf Products, Inc. (PPI) of Ohio, USA, has signed an agreement with the Electrovac Group, establishing the Austrian firm as the sole distributor of PPI’s Pyrograf-III carbon nanofibres in Europe.

“This agreement represents a true win-win for both firms,” said PPI General Manager Tom Hughes. “For PPI, this represents an opportunity to expand our international client base and increase customer support and interaction in the European market. For Electrovac, this represents an opportunity to enhance their current product line with the addition of our carbon nanofibres,” he said.

“We are extremely proud of our relationship with Pyrograf Products,” said Electrovac Technical Vice President Ernst Hammel. “Pyrograf Products is at the leading edge of carbon nanofibre production. They produce the most advanced and commercially-viable material of its kind in the world. We believe the partnership between Electrovac and Pyrograf Products will lead to a stronger future for both firms and enhanced products for our client base.”

Along with distributing PPI’s carbon nanofibres, Electrovac has added the multifunctional materials to polymer master batches to produce engineered plastics with improved electrical conductivity and mechanical properties.

“Electrovac prides itself in forging strong partnerships with innovative firms throughout the world,” said Hammel. “Our strong partnerships with our supplies and our customers enable us to deliver sophisticated thermal management solutions to demanding, high-performance customer base world wide.

This announcement represents the second international distribution agreement for PPI, who also has a distribution agreement with GSI Creos Corp. (GSI) of Tokyo, Japan, which covers the Asian market.
