TineLok Exceeds Specifications and Tolerance Thresholds in Rigorous Tests for U.S. Navy Hovercrafts

Permanent Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PERT) Groundbreaking TineLok Vibration Proof Fasteners Were Put Through Rigorous Military Testing to Prove Their Worthiness for Use on the Navy's LCAC Hovercraft and With Potential for Numerous Other Projects and Applications

HUNTINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 13, 2011) - Permanent Technologies (PINKSHEETS: PERT) announced that TineLok exceeded specifications and tolerance thresholds in tests conducted by the United States Navy related to TineLok's use on the LCAC Hovercraft.

TineLok is a breakthrough product that inexpensively solves safety, reliability and serviceability problems caused by fasteners loosening under extreme conditions.

"The global fastener market is estimated at approximately fifty-five billion dollars," said Patrick Tremblay, CEO of the Company. "TineLok has cost and performance advantages we believe will help Permanent Technologies to be specified for huge projects across diverse industries."

Because TineLok required no special tooling for installation or replacement the Navy expects reduction in labor, tooling, and overall maintenance costs. And, most importantly, they believe that with TineLok they will experience less downtime for all ships in the fleet.

"Testing with the Navy has gone extremely well and TineLok outperformed in all cases. We are optimistic that contract discussions could begin in first half of 2011," Tremblay continued.
