New Engineered Spider Silk has Potential to Unseat Dragon Silk as Worlds Strongest Recombinant Silk Fiber

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Promising New Line of Silkworm Transgenics Shows Incredible Results

ANN ARBOR, Mich., -October 31, 2016- Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company”), the leading developer of spider silk based fibers, today announced it has created a new line of genetically engineered silkworms that rival the Company’s Dragon SilkTM  for the title as world’s strongest and most flexible recombinant spider silk.   Based on early testing results, this new line has a high probability of delivering performance exceeding that of the record setting Dragon Silk line announced in 2015.  Over the next several months the Company will conduct a thorough evaluation and performance comparison between these two incredible materials.

“This brand new transgenic is the result of more than a year of dedicated development and thousands of individual microinjections,” said COO Jon Rice.  “We used a completely different approach in designing this new line to solving the challenge of commercially scalable spider silk.  This different approach is perhaps most significant because it offers the possibility to create a super hybrid by merging it with Dragon Silk and other strains.”

“Even as we ramp up the production of Dragon SilkTM to fulfil our government contract and supply product for industry, we are inventing the next generation of materials to penetrate new markets,” said Company Founder and CEO Kim Thompson.  “This laboratory breakthrough, so close on the heels of the launching of our production facility, emphasizes our lead in this burgeoning field,” continued Thompson.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Makes Another Bold Move to Expand Production of Spider Silk

Kraig Labs signs contract for delivery of 2,000 mulberry trees

ANN ARBOR, Mich., -August 16, 2016- Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Company”), the leading developer of spider silk based fibers, today announced that it has signed a contract for the delivery of 2,000 mulberry trees.  With the purchase of these trees, the Company will be able to significantly expand its US production of spider silk fibers including both Dragon Silk™ and Monster Silk®.  The Company is currently preparing for the planting of these first two thousand trees and is actively assessing its requirements for additional trees.

Mulberry leaves are an important dietary requirement for the Company’s proprietary transgenic silkworms which spin recombinant spider silk.   The planting of these trees is seen by the Company as the next step in expanding US production.

“The purchase of these trees is an important part of our plans to diversify our production both in the US and overseas. These trees will provide a sustainable, low cost, domestic input source for our US based silk production,” said COO Jon Rice.  “In addition to decreasing our costs and ensuring a stable food supply for our transgenic silkworms, testing in the laboratory has demonstrated that our silkworms produce better silk when fed fresh mulberry.”

The Company plans to use its US based production operations as an agile responsive capacity for domestic orders and as a testbed for future market developments.  This facility will work in parallel with the Company’s planned international high capacity operations.
