TORONTO - Black Swan Graphene and Graphene Composites are pleased to announce having initiated a commercial partnership for the supply of Black Swan's graphene used in the fabrication of GC Shield, a patented ballistic protection technology ("GC Sheilds"). Furthermore, Black Swan is excited to report having received strong interest for its graphene enhanced masterbatch products. Several promising initiatives involving high-profile customers are currently underway, and the Company expects to provide more details in the near future.

GC Shields offer lightweight ballistic protection to the law enforcement and defense sectors. Utilizing advanced materials and GC's patented graphene-aerogel composite, these shields possess force dispersion capabilities providing protection against multiple shots, stacked rounds, and edge impacts, all while maintaining minimal back face deformation GC Shields are among the strongest, lightest, and most resilient ballistic shields on the market.

GC is currently extending the GC Shields technology using Black Swan's graphene to other applications, where the strength, resilience and lightweight of the composite can provide significant protection, including vehicle armor with certified STANAG Level-1 tests.
