Nano Mask Licenses X-STATIC® Silver Based Antimicrobial Material for New Products

FISHKILL, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 28, 2011) - Nano Mask Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NANM), a materials technology development company focused on health and wellness related markets, today announced that it has entered into an licensing agreement with Noble Biomaterials, Inc., from whom Nano Mask will license Noble's X-STATIC® technology to use in their lab coats and operating room jackets. Nano Mask has contracted Georgia based Encompass Group LLC to manufacture these new products.

Proven by US Special Forces, NASA Astronauts and Olympic athletes, X-STATIC® delivers unmatched protection and performance. X-STATIC® is the leader in antimicrobial fabric technology. Here's how it works: X-STATIC® fibers are permanently bonded with a layer of 99.9% pure metallic silver. This silver layer is the key to X-STATIC's® powerful antimicrobial and anti-odor properties, as it creates an ionic shield that permanently inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi on the fabric. Fabrics made with X-STATIC fibers are flexible, with the natural look and feel of traditional textiles, while offering all the benefits of pure silver.

"We have already started taking orders of the new X-STATIC® based laboratory coats and have placed our first order with Encompass; we expect additional orders of the lab coats and warm-up jackets," said Ed Suydam, President and CEO, Nano Mask.

Mr. Suydam went on to say, "We look forward to working with both Noble and Encompass, two companies which are leading the way in silver antimicrobial material technology which we believe will continue to be the key towards the development of new products in the Hospital Acquired Infection market."
