(OTC: MTNA) Technology Meets Strict Government Requirements

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by the IO Circuit.

LAKE HARMONY, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- The IO Circuit recommends Material Technologies, Inc.'s (OTC BB: MTNA) ("MATECH") patented Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor (EFS™) system, which meets requirements for bridge crack detection testing as stated in the U.S. Transportation Bill, SAFETEA-LU, signed into law last fall by President Bush.

SAFETEA-LU includes a $5 million allocation over four years for a program to test steel bridges using a nondestructive technology that is able to detect growing cracks, including subsurface flaws as small as 0.010 inches in length or depth. Matech believes only its EFS technology can meet these requirements.
