PEN Inc. (OTCQB: PENC) ("PEN" or "the Company"), a global leader in developing, commercializing and marketing consumer and industrial products enabled by nanotechnology, today announced the latest addition to the CLARITY™ family of optical products, CLARITY™ FREE, a new alcohol-free lens cleaner. 

Developed and sold by PEN's subsidiary Nanofilm, Ltd., CLARITY™ FREE is designed specifically for consumers who prefer alcohol-free lens cleaners. CLARITY™ FREE is safe for all lenses and coatings, and just as effective as the Company's flagship ULTRA CLARITY® and CLARITY™ AR eyeglass cleaners, breaking down skin oils and dirt on contact and offering a streak-free finish. Available in 6-ounce and 2-ounce bottles, the Company will begin taking orders in May. CLARITY™ FREE is the first of several new sustainable products in the pipeline, with each new product to be safer and more environmentally friendly.

"Nanofilm has been a leader in lens care for more than 30 years, driving innovation and developing new best-in-class products that meet the changing needs of consumers. Our new alcohol-free product was created in direct response to a customer request. Drawing on our know-how and process experience to make an effective cleaner, we are proud to offer CLARITY™ FREE less than a year later. We expect it to attract strong interest from optometrists, opticians and other eyecare professionals," said Dr. Krish Rao, President of Nanofilm.

Dr. Rao will attend the upcoming International Vision Expo & Conference East ("Vision Expo East") from April 14- 17 in New York City where he will meet eyecare professionals and potential business partners and share more information about CLARITY™ FREE products.
