KULR and CSA Group Partner to Develop New Battery Safety and Testing Procedures for Canada
On February 25, 2021, KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTC: KULR) announced a joint collaboration with the CSA Group (formerly the Canadian Standards Association), a leading standards development organization and global provider of testing and certification services, to develop a new battery safety and testing procedure to be titled: C22.2 No. 350 Test Method for Safety and Performance of Thermal Barriers For Use in Batteries and Battery Based Energy Storage Systems.
KULRâ€™s passive propagation resistant (PPR) design solutions prevent dangerous cell-to-cell thermal runaway propagation. The companyâ€™s collaboration with CSA Group is the most recent of several alliances KULR has formed to which it can apply its expertise and help shape the regulatory and industry standards for battery shipments.
KULR Provides Thermal Management Design Services to Global Aerospace and Defense Manufacturer
On January 7, 2021, KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTC: KULR) announced it has provided thermal management design services to a global Tier-1 manufacturer of aerospace and defense technology to improve thermal subsystems needed for increased performance of hypersonic weapons.
KULR's advanced phase-change heatsink design services will assist the manufacturer in the design of hypersonic weapons with longer range and larger kinetic power than existing systems, which are limited by their inability to disperse heat.
KULR Completes Capital Raise, Issues Preliminary 4Q/20 Revenue
On January 6, 2021, KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTC: KULR) announced the completion of an $8 million registered direct offering.

KULRâ€™s Battery Safety Technology Validated by Naval Surface Warfare Center
On December 10, 2020, KULR Technology Group, Inc. (OTC: KULR) highlighted a report conducted by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock Division (NSWCCD) on the companyâ€™s battery safety technology. The report confirms that KULRâ€™s thermal management solutions can prevent cell-to-cell propagation.
The NSWCCD report, titled, "Emerging Energy Storage Technologies," was commissioned and released by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and states that: "Incorporating a vaporizing heat sink from KULR could lead to significant mass savings and â€¦ was capable of preventing cell-to-cell propagations. â€¦ [battery] packs assembled and tested at NSWCCD with the KULR material (the Thermal Runaway Shield or TRS) were found to be highly effective at resisting cell-to-cell propagation when a trigger cell was externally heated to failure. Meanwhile, identical cells with identical configuration but no TRS underwent a complete cell-to-cell propagation under the same test conditions."
Conditions such as extreme heat, bumping and jostling, short circuit, constant high-demand use, or physical damage can cause a single battery cell in a multi-cell pack to fail. When this happens, the fire and heat of that single failure often trigger failure in neighboring cells. This causes a dangerous chain reaction that causes high energy fires and explosions. According to the NSWCCD report, it is these types of runaway or propagation risks that KULRâ€™s solutions are capable of preventing.
KULR Technology Group, Inc., headquartered in Campbell, California, develops and commercializes high-performance thermal management technologies for batteries, electronics, and other components.
