We are pleased to be working with WS Packaging, a leading provider of innovative label and packaging solutions to well-known Fortune 500 brands," said Ecology Coatings CEO Bob Crockett. "We have been working with the WS Packaging management team for the past several months and find them to be tech savvy early adopters, customer driven and environmentally sensitive. We are confident that our EcoQuik(TM) coating technology will provide them a competitive advantage through cost efficiencies and improved product sustainability."

The label and printed products North American markets, estimated at approximately $20 billion, have ongoing requirements for cost effective coating products that provide improved water and chemical resistance, increased productivity and the ability to address environmental issues, such as lower energy usage and the use of solvent-free materials. Ecology Coatings' EcoQuik(TM) coatings have been developed to meet these market requirements by providing the following benefits:

-- Substantially lower cost alternatives to plastic laminate/glue
overlays
-- Proprietary green products that are fully reclaimable with minimal
disposal costs
-- Exceptional water, solvent and household chemical resistance
-- Compatibility with in-place application and UV-curing systems
