Point Blank Solutions Receives Six New NIJ .06 Certifications

Company Receives Three Certifications for Female Ballistic Armor Packages

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - November 11, 2009) - Point Blank Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PBSO), a leader in the field of protective body armor, today announced that six new ballistic models have been certified by the National Institute of Justice under the new NIJ Standard-0101.06, bringing the total number of certified packages to fifteen, the most in the soft body armor industry to date.

New certified packages include Level IIA and Level II certification for both male and female models, as well as Level IIIA certification for male only. These five lines will be marketed under the Company's Vision® series from Point Blank Body Armor and Blue Steel™ series from Protective Apparel Corporation of America (PACA), the Company's wholly owned subsidiaries. Additionally, the Company received certification for its BIIA series, another model for female officers which will be marketed under the Hi-Lite™ and Perform-X brands for Point Blank Body Armor and PACA, respectively.

"With 15 models now certified and others awaiting approval, we can provide both existing and potential law enforcement customers with the options they need to protect against almost any threat level they are faced with. We continue to develop the most innovative ballistic technologies and believe our solutions, from both Point Blank and PACA, provide the law enforcement community with the safest protective wear in the industry at the most affordable price," stated Mike Foreman, SVP of Sales and Marketing.

The NIJ .06 standard, which was released in July 2008, sets forth minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of personal body armor, in an effort to produce the safest and most reliable protective equipment yet. This latest standard reviews NIJ body armor classifications, details requirements (i.e., acceptance criteria, workmanship, armor backing material, etc.) and addresses test methods including velocity measurement equipment, wet conditioning, and test preparation.

Foreman added, "We are proud to now have NIJ .06 certified ballistic packages that specifically meet the needs of the female officer. While our previous models were designed to adapt to different body sizes and weights, these new packages provide female officers with better form, fit and function. It is our intent to aggressively market all of our NIJ .06 models to build upon our heritage as a provider of life-saving ballistic technologies."
