BluWood / Hartindo AF21 Blend Receives Class A Rating From ASTM E-84 Surface Burning Test

The Combination Will Establish a New Benchmark Within the Wood Industry

CORUNNA, ON--(Marketwire - February 20, 2008) - MSE Enviro-Tech Corp. (PINKSHEETS: MEVT) (FRANKFURT: MEH) in collaboration with Megola Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MGOA), and WoodSmart Solutions, Inc., is pleased to announce the results of a recent test conducted in accordance with ASTM E-84-07, Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials, at Intertek Testing Services NA Ltd., in Coquitlam, B.C. A wood product specimen treated with the combination BluWood / Hartindo AF21 solution received a Flame Spread rating of 20 and a Smoke Developed value of 15, which meets the parameters for the Class A Interior Wall and Ceiling Finish Category.

"The success of this test is paramount to our companies establishing a Definitive Purchase and Supply Agreement for the exclusive use of AF21 for building materials in North America. To have their BluWood treatment achieve a Class A Rating with the addition of Hartindo AF21 gives WoodSmart a premier wood treatment product for the construction industry. Now, along with mold, fungi and insect protection, the combined BluWood and AF21 treatment will also offer protection against fire. Thus, we are very excited at the business prospects moving forward," states Joel Gardner, CEO of Megola.

"We look forward to working with Megola and MSE Enviro-Tech in bringing the combined proprietary technologies to the wood industry. The combination will establish a new benchmark for environmentally responsible performance in protecting wood from the costly effects of excessive moisture, mold fungus growth, rot fungi decay, wood ingesting insects and fire," states Charles A. Morando, President/CEO of WoodSmart Solutions, Inc.

In August, 2007, WoodSmart Solutions, Inc., MSE Enviro-Tech Corp., and Megola Inc. signed a Letter of Intent to test the feasibility of incorporating the Hartindo AF21 Fire Inhibitor product into WoodSmart's BluWood lumber and other wood-based building products. (go to press release:

BluWood® / Hartindo AF21 Treatment

Douglas fir lumber was used as the test material for the ASTM E 84-07 test. This type of lumber is very common in the building industry, as it is an ideal structural and general-purpose wood for framing lumber in residential, light commercial, multistory and industrial construction. Before being subjected to the test conditions, the combination BluWood / Hartindo AF21 solution was sprayed on the surface of the wood using the same application methods and equipment that is used for the BluWood® treatment.

About the ASTM E 84-07 Test

The purpose of this test is to determine the relative burning behavior of the material by observing the flame spread along the test specimen and the smoke developed during the fire exposure. A flame spread and smoke development index are reported after a 10-minute fire exposure. Inorganic cement board and unfinished red oak flooring are used as comparative standards, assigned arbitrary values of 0 and 100, respectively. The results dictate whether a material meets the parameters for the Class A, B or C Interior Wall and Ceiling Finish Category. Class A materials must have a flame spread between 0-25, Class B: 26-75, and Class C: 76-200. Smoke development must be between 0-450 for all classes.

About Hartindo AF21

Hartindo AF21 is water-based, environmentally friendly, multi-purpose, non-toxic and non-corrosive fire inhibitor. As opposed to the numerous, and often times toxic fire retardants on the market that simply delay the spread of fire, AF21 renders materials non-flammable, thereby preventing the spread of fire. It can be applied to all natural fibers and many synthetic materials. A few of the many applications include the treatment of furniture, carpet, clothing, mattresses and building materials, onsite or during the manufacturing process, to dramatically reduce the possibility of these materials catching fire.

About WoodSmart Solutions, Inc. and BluWood (

In 2000, an idea was formed to apply innovative wood coating technology to a fast growing concern in the construction industry. Existing chemical treatments used in the building industry were under close scrutiny, and eventually they were replaced with a newer generation of wood preservatives that still did not address a problem many view as the number one concern in the construction of new residences... mold and moisture control associated with wood framing components.

BluWood is the trademarked name of a family of products coated with a proprietary two-part Infusion Film and DOT Wood Preservative technology, developed by a team of highly respected scientists under the direction of WoodSmart Solutions, Inc., headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida.

BluWood wood framing components provide the building industry with a new level of defense for protection of above ground, covered structure wood framing components against the costly, damaging effects of mold fungus growth; rot fungi and wood ingesting insects; as well as limiting moisture absorption, a key necessary element for mold growth.

This industry-specific, factory-applied coating process is performed by a North American network of WoodSmart Solutions, Inc., licensed application companies.
