NaturalNano Introduces Next Generation Additive, Pleximer-NTM

ROCHESTER, NY | Posted on October 25th, 2007

NaturalNano, Inc. (OTCBB: NNAN) (FWB: N3N) ( http://www.naturalnano.com ), a developer of advanced nanomaterials and additive technologies, today announced that Pleximer-N™, a new nylon-based additive product, has completed final manufacturing-scale validation and is available for purchase. Pleximer-N, the first in a suite of Pleximer products, is an innovative nanomaterial that when added to a polymer increases the strength, durability and flexibility of nylon and other polymer-based products.

Pleximer-N, the newest entrant in the $40 billion polymer composite industry, has been developed for a wide range of nylon and polymer-based products in a variety of markets. A turn-key additive, Pleximer-N is the first step in NaturalNano's strategic plan to enter all levels of an industry's supply chain by creating stronger, lighter and less expensive materials. With applications in a diverse range of both consumer and industrial markets, Pleximer-N has commercial potential for such things as increasing the durability of a football helmet, enhancing the aesthetics of fabrics or creating more flexible body panels in cars to reduce vehicle damage and provide increased levels of driver safety.

"The wide range of uses for Pleximer-N makes it a truly groundbreaking technology, one whose numerous applications we are just beginning to capitalize," said Cathy Fleischer, Ph.D., President and Chief Technical Officer of NaturalNano. "By incorporating halloysite in polymer-based products, we not only have the ability to increase a product's durability, strength and flexibility, but we also believe this material could be used in applications for surface treatments that require the highest level of surface quality, the A-1 industry standard, equal to the smooth finish on a car. This eliminates the need for additional coating and therefore would provide cost savings for the manufacturers."

Pleximer-N has passed rigorous, full-scale manufacturing testing by outside third parties for several industry applications. NaturalNano said it has manufactured a baseline inventory of Pleximer-N and has secured both internal and external production resources to meet expected demand for the additive.

NaturalNano noted that through their innovative manufacturing processes and patented technologies, Pelximer-N can be tailored to customers' specific need. By developing Pleximer-N with customized levels of HNT, manufacturers will have the freedom to explore the potential applications of Pleximer-N across numerous products.

Fleischer concluded: "By offering Pleximer-N to the marketplace, we have the ability to explore new applications with potential customers to produce industrial and consumer products with improved quality and strength at lower production costs."
