Coretec Progress on CHS Commercialization

ANN ARBOR, MI / ACCESSWIRE / March 10, 2021 - The Coretec Group Inc., (OTCQB: CRTG) (the “Company”), is a company developing a portfolio of silicon-based products in energy-focused verticals, including electric vehicle and consumer batteries, solid-state lighting (LEDs), and semiconductors. The Company, along with its partner Evonik, is pleased to announce they have successfully scaled the production of Cyclohexasilane (CHS) to 500g from 5g.

Compared to the previous laboratory amounts of 5g, this 100-fold increase demonstrates a successful step to pilot manufacturability of the material and is a big step on the path to commercial scale. The 500g will be split into smaller amounts (50-100grams) and shipped to several evaluation customers in Europe and the United States. European customers will be the first to receive their samples, followed by United States customers due to international shipping delays caused by Covid.

“We are pleased to have managed our progress with CHS commercialization this past year as planned, despite the world experiencing unprecedented times with the Covid pandemic, and we expect CHS to ship to our customers in the coming weeks,” said Michael Kraft, CEO of The Coretec Group.  

Evaluation customers include those in academia, battery technology, and semiconductor processing. The ability to evaluate this unique liquid silicon precursor in real applications is crucial to validating CHS’s value and to identify any necessary modifications to processing parameters. 

“Coretec has seen an enthusiastic response to CHS availability for application development by our customers, and our partners are working diligently to meet demand. We are confident that CHS is the silicon source many customers are looking for,” said Michelle Tokarz, The Coretec Group’s Director of Sales and Business Development.
