Underwriters Laboratories Approves New Luna Exit Sign Based on New York City Specifications

KENT, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 19, 2005 -- Luna Technologies International, Inc. (OTC BB: LTII) highlights to shareholders the significance of the accreditation of a recent product development. Luna's ES-902 is an expansion of the company's Exit Sign offering that was designed to satisfy the size specifications required for New York City. The larger sign is approved to the same tough Underwriters Laboratories UL-924 visibility standard of 75 feet that Luna's ES-900 fulfills. The UL-924 standard is a widely recognized national code that tests Exit Signs for use as a primary Exit Sign. For photoluminescent signs, this relates to the replacement of traditionally powered alternatives where applicable. The ES-900 was the first photoluminescent Exit Sign to surpass this rigorous standard to the mark of 75 feet.

Referring to further product developments yet to be unveiled, Luna Technologies' CEO Kimberly Landry stated, "These specifically designed new products are all set to be a part of Luna's turn-key solution for Building Owners complying with Local Law 26. Luna is expanding its product offering in a focused manner in preparation for the impending boom of the New York City market."
