Raymor Industries will be present at the 2005 Nanotechnology for Defense conference in Washington

July 20, 2005

Raymor Industries Inc. (TSX-V: RAR) is proud to announce that it will be present at the 2005 Nanotechnology for Defense conference, to be held from July 25th to July 27th, 2005, in Washington DC. This conference aims to accelerate the use of nanotechnology in military applications such as solar panels, coatings, batteries, electronics, sensors, and artificial muscles. This conference will allow Raymor to build business relationships with the US Military.

“The military sector is an important market for the use of our very high quality single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT), which will be produced at more than 10,000 grams/day this fall,” explains Dr. Frédéric Larouche, coinventor of Raymor’s single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT) production process.

“Our technology, which uses plasma for the production of single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT), allows for a much higher production capacity than any other currently existing technology,” said Dr. Olivier Smiljanic, coinventor of the process.

“Our production costs are much lower than all the other existing technologies,” adds Dr. Larouche. The need to utilize nanotechnology is immediate, given that besides the military market, a recent study indicates that 25 of the 30 companies on the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (NYSE: DJI) are currently developing products using nanotechnology. As well, many of these companies will have a significant need for single-walled carbon nanotubes (C-SWNT) at the commercialization phase of these products.

According to BCC Research, the carbon nanotubes market will grow to US$232 million in 2006, and will experience an average annual growth of 173% over the next 5 years to reach US$35 billion. According to Lux Research, the nanotechnology industry may represent a market of US$2,600 billion within 10 years.
