International Barrier Technology -- Fire-Resistant Building Materials Company Reports Record Revenue; Record Monthly Sales Volume for October 2006

October Monthly Sales Volumes Increase 100% Year to Year

WATKINS, MN and VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2006 -- International Barrier Technology Inc. ("Barrier") (OTCBB: IBTGF) (TSX-V: IBH), a manufacturer of proprietary fire-resistant building materials, is pleased to report record shipments for the month ending October 2006. Eight hundred, seventy-six thousand, three hundred and eighty-four sq. ft. (876,384) of Blazeguard products were shipped during October 2006. This is an increase of 100% from the 439,000 shipped during the same period last year.

Monthly sales revenue increased 56% from $416,810 in October 2005 to $652,061 in October 2006. During this period sheathing costs, which are a pass through commodity, continue near all-time lows. This kept top-line sales revenue lower that what it could have been had sheathing prices been at or above average historical prices. Fiscal year to date sales revenue has increased to $2,639,778, an increase of 50% from 2006.

Sales into Southern California grew to 21% of the total monthly sales volume, which were captured through our distribution arrangement with Bear Forest Products. Volumes into the multi-family residential roof deck market remained strong and represented 62% of total sales.

"Efficiencies continue to improve on the production line enabling Barrier to keep up with increasing demand for Blazeguard," states Dr. Michael Huddy, President. "As we proceed through the 2nd and 3rd quarters of Fiscal 2007, we anticipate that the percentage of shipments from the new line to continue to grow significantly and will help in the further expansion of sales and improved bottom line performance."
