About Dais Analytic Corporation

Dais Analytic Corporation (OTCBB: DLYT) is commercializing its nanotechnology materials and processes into evolutionary or disruptive air, energy or water applications. The applications include ConsERV™, commercially available, which pretreats incoming building air for most Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment with the energy found in the exhaust air thus lowering HVAC capital equipment, maintenance costs, and emissions. The Company is in various stages of development of NanoAir, a disruptive water-based, no refrigerant gas refrigeration cycle usable for nearly every air conditioning and refrigeration use (co-funded by the US DoE 'ARPA-E' program); NanoClear™, a simpler method of treating most forms of contaminated water (sea, waste, industrial) to provide 1,000 times cleaner potable water; and NanoCap™, a disruptive energy-storage device. Each application underscores the diversity of Dais' core product, Aqualyte™ -- a family of nano-structure polymers and processes -- by focusing on minimizing consumption of irreplaceable natural resources and stopping the degradation of our environment.
