1 At The Forefront of Advanced Material Science & Technology
Synthesis, Fabrication and Sale of High Performance Specialty Components

2 Simple Business Premise:
Surmet Corporation Founded in 1982 On A Simple Business Premise: “Currently Used Materials Are Not Adequate To Meet The Challenges of Tomorrow’s Machines and Systems”

3 Corporate Mission To Provide Working Solutions that Translate into Significant Performance Advantage at a Reasonable Cost We are an Advanced Materials Solutions company. We invent solutions to your material related problems and we take Laboratory Inventions to the Production Floor

4 Business Philosophy We Clearly Understand and Meet The Needs of Customers. We have total Commitment to Customers’ success We Deliver unique and measurable performance advantage to customers We Provide Solutions based on Advanced materials and Cost effective manufacturing process innovations At Surmet, we are at the Forefront of Advanced Material Science &Technology. We Synthesize, Fabricate and Sell High Performance Specialty Components

5 Our Legacy Business We developed innovative process and became the leading Manufacturer of Advanced Electrostatic Clamps to hold Silicon Wafers for Semi conductor Industry. These clamps are still the global standard without competition We also invented and became the leading supplier of Coated (UHP Silicon) machine Components for Micro-chip Processing Chambers. Contamination control, a constant ongoing concern, is the objective here. We also invented and developed a process to deposited thick (over one hundred microns thick) Amorphous Silicon surfacing for Space Mirror Applications. This silicon is amenable to single point diamond turning.

6 Surmet in 2002/2003 Acquired ALON® Optical Ceramics Technology from Raytheon 2002 Acquired Technical Ceramics Facilities from MA-COM 2003 (Buffalo, NY) Formerly Advanced Refractory Technologies (ART) Buffalo Acquired Precise Surface Finishing Established Surmet Precision Optics, December 2003 (Murrieta, CA)

7 Corporate Divestiture
In order to focus on Optical Ceramics development, we executed a successful Corporate Divestiture in 2007 We sold our highly profitable and thriving Semiconductor Division with thirty ex-employees to Publicly traded Entegris Inc. The divested Business Unit is flourishing with the new owners and Ours is the most Profitable Division in 2010 & 2011 for the acquirer.

8 Our current Market Focus
ALON® Armor which is more Effective than Glass Laminates at Half the weight. ALON® is the Top Choice for Light Weight Transparent Armor Applications. It is ready for large scale insertion in defense and civilian systems. We are also in ALON & Spinel IR precision Optics business (Domes & Reconnaissance Windows) We are also in Al N Thermal Management Products Business

9 Surmet’s Specialty Optical Ceramics
Surmet’s Specialty Optical Ceramics have Multi Industry Applications Potential, such as Military, Bio-medical, Chemical, Energy & Lighting, Semi-conductor among others. For lightweight poly crystalline Transparent ceramic Armor applications ALON® is the leading candidate. There are many advantages : Low Cost, High Quality ALON® Powder in tonnage quantities are synthesized at Surmet. Ultra high purity ALON powder is manufactured in-house using a robust and cost effective manufacturing process

10 ALON and Spinel Are Made By Conventional Powder Processing Techniques
Optical Fabrication Powder Forming Heat Treatment ALON is Being Produced By The Metric Ton

11 ALON and Spinel Tri-Mode Seeker Domes for Joint Air to Ground Missile
JAGM Tri-Mode Seeker Tri-Mode Seeker dome requires transmission at 1.06um, 3-5um, RF Baseline dome is monolithic ALON or Spinel - Surmet can produce both materials Some fraction of domes require embedded metallic grids - Surmet is only company with mature technology to produce gridded domes Surmet’s ALON and Spinel domes have met stringent ppm level homogeneity requirement for JAGM

12 50 Cal M2AP Ballistic Testing
Bullet was shattered and stopped by ALON Armor 1.6-in thick ALON® Laminate Pass High speed shot sequence Exit hole 3.6-in thick Glass Laminate Fail Bullet penetrated glass laminate and 5 phone books

13 ALON® Transparent Armor Applications
Surmet provides threat specific laminate solutions and complete armor products One-half the weight and thickness of glass armor ALON® transparent armor has demonstrated superior performance for NVGs Surmet has production orders for premium armor products Aerospace customers, products driven by weight and aesthetics Have obtained FAA Certification for ALON® armor products ALON® transparent armor installed in a flying aircraft Surmet is developing transparent armor solutions for several ground vehicle applications Special Operations vehicles Gunner protection kits Military vehicles under development We have obtained Secret clearances to facilitate work on classified programs

14 Thermal Management Aluminum nitride powders for thermal management applications in emerging Optoelectronics and Power electronics Microwave multilayer applications High thermal conductivity and dielectric strength adhesives Densified AlN substrates and multilayer boards

15 Aluminum Nitride Powders
Commercial suppler of AlN powders High purity High thermal conductivity High electrical resistivity Water resistant grades available Grades with various particle sizes Current production capacity 1,000 kg/wk Optoelectronics thermal management applications Add to resins to increase thermal conductivity Densify to produce AlN single or multilayer substrates Al or Cu matrix MMC substrates

16 Surmet Facilities Facilities in MA
Surmet Headquarters (6,000 sq ft) 18 A St R&D and Manufacturing Facility (4,000 sq ft) Ceramics Production Facility (8,000 sq ft) Buffalo, NY facility (75,000 sq ft) for powder production and ceramics processing Murrieta, CA facility (6,250 sq ft) for precision military optics fabrication

17 Management Principles
Surmet adheres to clear and strict Management Principles Manage Finances Extremely Responsibly Focus on Growth via Innovation and New Products Development Develop and Maintain Small Business Culture of Innovation

18 Honesty, Humility & Gratitude
Business Philosophy At All Times Conduct Business with Total Integrity, Honesty, Humility & Gratitude

19 Surmet Today Is Vibrant, Profitable & Cash Flow Positive
Is a Growing Enterprise No Legal Liabilities ISO 9001:2008 Certified Clean Balance Sheet Multi year Audited Financial Statements And Surmet is a Powerhouse of Advanced Material Technologies Highly Qualified and Enthusiastic, Problem Solving Team. What can Surmet do for you?
