NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 -- Crystal Research Associates, LLC announced today that it has issued an Executive Informational Overview® (EIO) on Abakan Inc. (OTCQB: ABKI). The full 76-page report is available from Crystal Research Associates at www.crystalra.com as well as from Abakan at http://abakaninc.com/presentations.html.
Abakan (or "the Company") develops, manufactures, and markets advanced nanocomposite materials, innovative fabricated metal products, and engineered metal composites for applications in oil and gas, petrochemical, mining, aerospace and defense, energy, infrastructure, and processing industries. Abakan's portfolio includes high-speed large-area metal cladding technology, long-life nanocomposite anti-corrosion and anti-wear coating materials, and high-strength light-weight metal composites. Abakan states that its portfolio includes products with up to 80 times longer life, up to 40 times higher productivity, and favorable strength-to-weight ratios versus competing technologies.
The Company has introduced its metal coatings for metal asset protection and life-extension in the mining and oil and gas industries, and is working to scale-up and commercialize its metal cladding products for the oil and gas, oil sands, mining, and chemical industries. Abakan believes that the value proposition likely to drive adoption of its CermaClad corrosion- and wear-resistant clad products centers on being able to offer a more compelling cost-benefit trade-off than what presently exists. Abakan states that its clad products can be manufactured at up to 15 to 100 times higher productivity, with enhanced properties and longer life, at lower costs than competing technologies and products. Independent third-party testing at end users and laboratories has validated the value proposition offered by Abakan's technologies.
The Abakan group of companies has received numerous trade, industry, and technology recognitions, including as the top manufacturing technology globally by the Wall Street Journal, as the highest-ranked materials and only nanocomposite company on Forbes' 2011 list of "America's Most Promising Companies," five R&D 100 Awards from R&D Magazine, and a technology innovation award from National Institute of Standards and Technology, among others. Cumulative prior investment into the Company's core technologies has totaled over $50 million.
