Leading Military Fabric Supplier Schedules Scale-Up Trial of Alexiflam™ Technology

PERTH, AUSTRALIA and GREER, SC--(Marketwired - Aug 4, 2015) - Alexium International Group Limited (Alexium) (ASX: AJX) (OTCQX: AXXIY) is pleased to announce another leading supplier to the US Defense Sector has provided an initial purchase order for the shipment of Alexiflam™ Fire Retardant (FR) technology for a scale-up trial for Nylon/Cotton military uniforms. 

Pending the successful trial, initial revenue of circa US$1MM could be received by Alexium to fulfill next stage testing for this Customer's products by early 2016. Shortly thereafter, a comprehensive agreement with this Customer could address 5% per annum of the global military market, currently valued at US$240MM per annum.

This Customer scale-up trial builds off our efforts with the US Army Natick Soldier Systems Centre (Natick) to be a key supplier of Eco-Friendly FR solutions in US Department of Defense military uniform programs. "Having yet another important supplier to the military market moving to a scale-up trial shows that our Environmentally Friendly Nylon/Cotton FR Alexiflam™ technology meets the rigorous requirements of flame retardancy for military uniforms," said Steve Gravlee, VP of Sales.

John Stelling, Alexium's Coordinator of Military Markets, added, "This high level of performance combined with cost effectiveness and ease of production transition has proven that Alexiflam™ has become one of the best new products for military needs in this area." 

Alexium will provide further information as we move to following stages.
