IWG Welcomes Aerospace Industry Veteran Mike Piscatella as a New Director

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 10, 2005) - International Water-Guard Industries Inc. (IWG) (TSX VENTURE:IWG) is pleased to announce that Mr. Michael J. Piscatella has accepted an invitation to join the company's Board of Directors.

Mr. Piscatella brings over thirty years of aerospace business experience to the Board. He currently is the President of Industrial Tube Corporation and the VP of Business Development for Hartzell Propeller Inc., subsidiaries of Charter Aerospace Inc.

He is also a member of the President's Advisory Board for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

"Having Mike join us is another step forward for this company," said IWG President and CEO David Fox.

Now, with Mike's experience and abilities on our Board, we have an invaluable new resource to help us achieve the goals we have set for ourselves."

Mr. Piscatella's appointment fills a vacancy left by long-time IWG Board Member and former President, Mr. C. William Coote, who is stepping down after ten years with the company.
