SUGAR LAND, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 16, 2007 -- Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) will host (RIG) (Centerville, Ohio) as its special guest on Radio on Monday, April 16, 2007, as part of the weekly national broadcast of "Industry Today." RIG is the authorized distributor of Belzona products in the Great Lakes region. RIG has sponsored this "Industry Today" appearance to present its application company Composite Industrial Group (CIG). This group specializes in abrasive blasting and the application of Belzona polymer repair compounds for the most demanding industrial and commercial applications. Serving a large spectrum of industries including power, petrochemical, steel mills, foundries, pulp & paper, automotive, transportation, universities, hospitals, historic buildings, government and many more, RIG can meet the most specific project requirement.

RIG provides an alternative to conventional repair technology, with the ability to rebuild, repair, protect and maintain all types of machinery, equipment, buildings and structures from the effects of abrasion, erosion/corrosion and chemical attack utilizing Belzona polymers solution. RIG is the authorized distributor of Belzona products in Michigan, Kentucky, southwest Ohio, southern Illinois and all but three counties in Indiana. Jim Rumford, President and founder of RIG, has been in business for over 43 years, including 27 years representing Belzona products. RIG currently employs 20 sales and technical consultants with an average of 20 years' experience each who live and work across the Great Lakes region with expertise in mechanical and petroleum engineering, maintenance technologies, and application specialist experts in Belzona technology. With this team of industry experts, RIG provides 24/7 technical support and product assistance.

In the late 1990s, Rumford added CIG as an application company to specialize in abrasive blasting and the application of Belzona polymer repair compounds for the most specific repair needs. David Goldbach, manager of CIG, has worked with RIG since 1988. Goldbach has 25 years' industrial application experience and is familiar with many different manufacturers' coatings. He discovered that Belzona products expanded the application business to include rebuilding components with the metallic and ceramic polymers. CIG has facilities for performing project applications of any size and also travels to the customer locations to perform applications onsite. The staff of CIG often visits the job site to confer with the consultants on maintenance issues to prepare accurate estimates. There is no job too big for Composite Industrial Group or location too far for them to help you with your maintenance application concerns.

In most applications Belzona is preferred over welding because of the bonding nature of Belzona products and the safety aspect. Polymeric composites for the repair of metal, rubber, concrete and specialty coatings have the ability to:

--  Rebuild chillers, end covers, water boxes, tube sheets, pumps, pump
    impellers, & pump casings
--  Repair shafts bearing housing keyways in a machine shop or in place
--  Rebuild tanks, amining towers, knockout drums, scrubbers, clarifiers,
    and condenser tanks. Any place there is a need for wet high temperature
    coatings in excess of 300 degrees
--  Repair rubber components, rubber lined tanks, conveyor belts and
    expansion joints
--  Waterproof roofs or membranes: Belzona is used to repair parapet walls
    joints and seams, roof edges, skylights, glazing bars, and membranes for
    waterproofing insulation
--  Repair concrete on roads, historic and other building structures, and
    wherever concrete products are used
--  And repairs too numerous to mention, but be assured if it is a
    maintenance issue Belzona solutions are your answer
