MATECH Performs EFS Testing on Bridges in Australia for New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - MATECH Corp. (OTCBB: MTCH) (www.matechcorp.com) is pleased to announce that the Company has performed EFS testing on several bridges in New South Wales, Australia. MATECH's Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor (EFS) System is the only nondestructive bridge inspection method capable of detecting growing cracks as small as 0.01 inches in bridges, too small to be seen with the unaided eye.

MATECH has completed several bridges in the cities of Kempsey, Macksville, and Port Macquarie. During the inspection, multiple growing cracks were found by MATECH's EFS technology. The Company also trained New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) professionals to utilize MATECH's EFS System.

RTA is a state government agency responsible for improving road safety, testing and licensing drivers, registering and inspecting vehicles, and managing an extensive road network that includes 5,051 bridges. RTA employs a staff of 6,929 in more than 180 offices throughout New South Wales, including 129 motor registries.

"We are pleased that MATECH has completed several significant bridge projects in Australia," said Robert Bernstein, CEO of MATECH. "It is clear that there is a global need for advanced bridge inspection technologies like our EFS System. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the government of New South Wales on additional EFS testing projects, as well as providing them with the equipment they need to provide cost-effective bridge management services."
