Permanent Technologies Inc. Introduces a New Fastener in the Plumbing and Faucet Markets Leveraging Its Patented Vibration Proof Technology

Permanent Technologies Inc. Has Developed a New Reusable Self-Locking Fastener, Named UniversalLok, Based on the Company's Patented TineLok Technology; UniversalLok Is Designed to Simplify Installation of Plumbing Fixtures and Prevent Faucets From Loosening During Initial Installation, Renovation or Improvement Projects and Throughout the Entire Life Cycle of the Faucet

HUNTINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - Permanent Technologies (PINKSHEETS: PERT) today announced the introduction of a new line of self-locking fasteners designed for plumbing applications. The new UniversalLok™, product uses the Company's patented vibration proof TineLok technology and is designed to prevent faucets from losing their clamp load properties and adherence to the deck or sink they are mounted on during installation and ongoing use.

"This innovative application of TineLok technology enables us to solve a wide range of stubborn plumbing problems for the professional installer as well as the do it yourselfer (DIY) and enhance customer satisfaction in their daily use of their faucets," said company CEO Patrick Tremblay. "UniversalLok was developed with input from a major US faucet manufacturer along with design and engineering consulting from our new manufacturing partner, Autronic Plastics, Inc."

Autronic Plastics, Inc. is a full service multi-plant, injection molding and tooling manufacturing company. They offer Permanent Technologies: experienced in-house design, engineering and quality assurance resources, latest plastic fabrication and rapid prototyping equipment and the ability to partner for future research and development projects.

IBISWorld's "Plumbing Market Research Report" estimates the overall plumbing market at US$86 billion. And according to the Freedonia Group, US demand for industrial fasteners will reach $12.5 billion in 2013.

"The plumbing industry represents a huge opportunity for Permanent Technologies and a natural progression from the Military sector to the broad Commercial/Industrial marketplace," added Mr. Tremblay. "What began as one project with a single faucet manufacturer is becoming something transferable to a majority of faucet applications and broader commercial marketplace opportunities where clamp load performance with easy on/easy off, reusable properties is required. With UniversalLok we now have a cost-effective solution to present to every plumbing fixture manufacturer as well as home renovation specialists and do it yourselfers.

"And with Autronic Plastics, Inc. we have a proven manufacturing partner to produce our products with the highest quality, in any volume required and with the ability to adapt design changes extremely quickly. With this team and our innovative products, we believe Permanent Technologies can commence sales and production in the commercial markets."
