Diamant to Debut Environmentally Friendly Bio-Shrink Film for the Packaging of Convenient Food Products, Electronic Goods, DVDs and Other Consumer Goods

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2007 -- Diamant Film Inc., a division of Diamant Art Corporation (OTCBB: DIAAF), manufacturer and distributor of the world's first plasticizer-free stretch film based on polystyrene and the first food wrap film that is environmentally friendly and recyclable, announced today that the company is completing the final testing before ordering the manufacture of its low density polyethylene based biodegradable shrink film which can be used to package beverages, preserved foods, electronic goods, DVDs and other consumer goods. Diamant's new bio-shrink film should be available to the company's existing product line for the 2nd quarter of this year.

The introduction of Diamant's bio-shrink film, which will contain no polyvinyl chloride (PVC), is timely, as computer manufacturers like Apple and Dell have committed to eliminating PVC plastics from their products and requiring ecologically friendly products.

Regarding the new product, Diamant Art Corporation CEO and President, Stefan Gudmundsson, said, "There is no doubt that an environmentally friendly, non-PVC shrink wrap is needed. Shareholders are beginning to demand it of companies, and consumers and environmental groups are pressuring manufacturers to phase out toxic substances from products."

Diamant Bio-Products contain Totally Degradable Plastic Additive (TDPA) Oxo-Biodegradable Technology. TDPA-based plastic products will degrade and ultimately biodegrade. Unlike other plastic, once biodegrading is complete, all that remains is carbon dioxide, water and biomass, all of which are part of the normal bio-cycle.
