Investment Alert for MTNA! June 21, 2006

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Stock Market Alerts.

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 21, 2006 -- Stock Market Alert`s performance stock list includes: Material Technologies Incorporated (OTCBB: MTNA), 3M Company (NYSE: MMM), Carpenter Technology Corporation (NYSE: CRS), Martin Marietta Materials, Inc. (NYSE: MLM).

Material Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: MTNA) is a company that should have the attention of speculative investors. Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that the Departments of Transportation of several more states have expressed interest in its metal fatigue detection technology this month.

This exceptional news may get the attention of traders. MATECH is in the process of setting up meetings with the agencies to discuss the advantages of using its breakthrough Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor™ (EFS) to assess the structural integrity of their bridges.

Recently MATECH has completed reviews of three bridges at the request of Pennsylvania's DOT, and Massachusetts has submitted information on seventeen bridges throughout the state where fatigue damage is a primary concern. This month MATECH has been contacted by additional state transportation agencies to inquire about the EFS's unique ability to detect minute, growing cracks in steel bridge infrastructure as well as in other metal structures which are subjected to cyclic loadings.

This continues to be a stock for speculative investors to watch. "Our proven metal fatigue detection solutions can find, measure and monitor tiny cracks in structural components with industry-leading accuracy. This data is critical to federal and state transportation agencies tasked with maintaining bridge safety," said MATECH CEO Robert M. Bernstein. "As our sales and marketing efforts generate positive momentum, more potential customers are expressing interest. We are extremely pleased with the inquiries we have received so far and excited at the prospect of developing them."

MATECH has exclusive rights to seven patents along with $8.3 million in already completed contracts from the U.S. Government for research, testing and validation of its innovative solutions.

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Fiscal Year 2007 Budget Request continues the funding for bridge safety, requesting $65.6 billion in budgetary resources to support major investments in transportation nationwide including $4.2 billion for bridge replacement, rehabilitation and preventive maintenance.
