Bourque and Sichuan Aerospace partner to create next generation power lines

November 5, 2012

TUCSON, Ariz., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Bourque Industries has begun partnership negotiations with Sichuan Aerospace Tuoxin Basalt Industrial Co., LTD (SATBI) aimed at creating a partnership to co develop, coproduce and distribute a Kryron based High Power Transmission Cable (KryronHPTC). SATBI has a full production equipment line in place and would be the initial production location for Kryron HPTC if it is successfully developed. Successful commercialization of Kryon is dependent on the services of John Bourque, Bourque Industries, Inc.’s brilliant inventor and CEO. Plans for later production facilities in the United States are part of the ongoing negotiations, assuming development is successful. The Kryron HPTC under development is anticipated 50% lighter than existing HPTC so twice as much capacity could potentially be placed on each existing tower. This could solve tens of thousands of power transmission bottlenecks and create a much lower cost of expanding network capabilities for power companies.

Management, under the direction of John Bourque, believes its Kryron HPTC can be developed so that it does not radiate significant energy. Current power lines emit energy and are suspected to present health hazards. Bourque and his team believe that its Kryron HPTC, once developed and commercially tested, may prove to be the most efficient form of power transport on the market, because of an anticipated ability to hold the current within the wires. The amount of loss prevented in long haul transmission of power could be so significant that the economies of scale would suggest a significant switch to Kryron HPTC.

The basalt core of the Kryron HPTC cable is projected to be 10 times stronger than steel, non-conductive, not to oxidize, and non-corrosive. The Kryron HPTC may have a life span of as much as 30 years, which would be a large multiple of the current life spans of HPTC lines.

Company Statement: About Bourque and Kryron
Bourque Industries, Inc. is a publicly-traded advanced materials science company (BORK.PK) based in Tucson, Ariz. Bourque holds all patents for Kryron-based technology. Kryron is a patented, state-of-the-art metal alloying process that significantly alters the material characteristics of common metals, increasing strength, conductivity, melting point, and imbuing the metals with anti-corrosive and non-reactive properties. Management believes that unique Kryronized alloys have broad uses across a range of industrial segments. Bourque Industries and Kryron are trademarks of Bourque Industries.
