Perth, April 11, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Talga Resources Ltd (ASX:TLG) (TLGRF:OTCMKTS) is pleased to provide an interview with Managing Director, Mark Thompson, regarding positive results on making concrete more conductive.
Talga has achieved outstanding results, verified by an independent test laboratory, on graphene enhanced prototype concrete samples. The Company is developing 'fit for purpose' products within four prime industry sectors, including the building products/construction sector. Thermally conductive concrete is a growing market which has potential to be an early adopter of graphene enhanced products. Applications include thermal transfer materials for underground power transmission cables, domestic heating, road and bridge snow melting and tarmac de-icing.
"We are delighted with the test results of our first graphene enhanced concrete prototypes," Mr Thompson said. "They demonstrate significantly improved ability to transfer heat energy, opening a range of existing largescale construction and infrastructure markets for Talga's graphene and graphite products. Our European location is situated on the doorstep of these markets and major infrastructure projects, such as Germany's 'Suedlink', where thousands of kilometres of underground power cables may require high thermally conductive concrete materials."
