Quantum Materials Begins Shipping Cadmium-Free Red and Green
Company accelerates development to meet display manufacturer demand as a result of
management meetings at 2015 Consumer Electronics Show
SAN MARCOS, Texas -- February 5, 2015—Rapidly growing North American quantum dot
manufacturer Quantum Materials Corp (OTCQB:QTMM) today announced it has begun
shipping Cadmium-free red and green quantum dots in evaluation and production quantities to
select leading consumer electronics manufacturers. The company has increased the uniformity
and enhanced stability of its Cadmium-free nanomaterials as a result of bringing previouslyreported
automated capital equipment, facility and personnel investments online. Quantum
Materials is at the forefront of Cadmium-free quantum dot development and recently announced
increasing production capacity to 2000Kg of quantum dots and nanoparticles per annum in Q2
Meetings with manufacturers at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) spurred requests
for Cadmium-free red and green quantum dots with application–specific functionality. Quantum
Materials has accelerated Cadmium-free quantum dot development because electronics
manufacturers’ are seeking to stay ahead of environmental regulations governing dangerous
materials in consumer electronic devices. Quantum dots are easily integrated into the industrystandard
thin-film roll-to-roll inkjet and surface deposition technologies currently used in existing
LCD display production lines, as illustrated in an informative video* detailing Cadmium-free
quantum dot uses and benefits.
“We were very encouraged with the results of our meetings at CES,” said Quantum Materials
Corp CEO Stephen Squires. “I personally am even more pleased with the dedication, hard work
and creativity of our team. Their discoveries have enabled us to meet the stringent demands
and tight delivery deadlines necessary to rapidly integrate our materials into commercial
The U.S. leads the world in nanotechnology innovation with over $30 billion invested in research
to date. Quantum Materials is working with manufacturers toward integrating its advanced
materials into commercial products that will create jobs, generate profits, and strengthen our
economy and balance of payments. The limited industrial availability of a reliable supply of
Cadmium-free quantum dots has attracted the interest of the world’s largest display and solidstate
lighting manufacturers in evaluating Quantum Materials mass-production capability.
Quantum Materials’ products are the foundation for technologically superior, energy efficient
and environmentally sound LCD UHD displays, the next generation of solid-state lighting, solar
photovoltaic power applications, advanced battery and energy storage solutions, biotech
imaging, and biomedical theranostics.
