1 Cerflon ® Making today s products better … Shaping tomorrow s products!

2 Who is CRT? Founded in 1997, CRT (Ceramic Reinforced Technologies) discovered the synergistic effect of combining Boron Nitride with a Fluoropolymer to improve properties. To date CRT has concentrated on polymer additives,processing aids and lubricants In these applications CERFLON® additives have consistently outperformed existing additives.

3 What is CERFLON ® ? Cerflon ® is a ceramic reinforced fluoropolymer. A reinforced fluoropolymer occurs when Boron Nitride, which is stronger and tougher, is introduced into the matrix of a fluoropolymer thereby reinforcing the polymer. This additive benefit significantly increases the durability or wear properties in both fluoropolymer films and coatings. The increase in durability / longevity also provides a longer lasting lubrication benefit.

4 CRT s Patented Technology Demonstrates the synergistic effect of combining Boron Nitride with a Fluoropolymer to improve properties. Normalized results from Ball on Cylinder Lubricity Evaluator (BOCLE) (ASTM 5001) per U.S. Patent data. Scuff Depth (mm) Normalized Results 0.72 Base oil …………… Base oil with BN …… Base oil with PTFE … 119 Anticipated result: 0.60 Base oil with PTFE & BN … 115 ACTUAL: 0.53 Cerflon ……………………… 127

5 How does CERFLON ® benefit Industry ? Improved lubrication properties over PTFE, MoS2, graphite Not black versus graphite / MoS2 Improved wear properties, durability Slicker, tougher coatings (longevity) Reduced polymer processing pressures Possible economic advantage over pure Boron Nitride applications(testing in progress) Patented technology that provides ability to offer a better differentiated product with additional brand enhancement at NO additional cost

6 Where can CERFLON ® be used? Most Fluoropolymer, FEP, PFA, PTFE (Teflon ® ) and Fluoroelastomer applications Boron Nitride applications below 600°F Automotive lubricants and greases including motor oil Industrial lubricants and greases Food Processing Penetrants Coatings

7 Where can CERFLON ® be used (cont) Additive for Polymer products to improve processing performance Improved polymer tubing products Enhance wear or corrosion resistance for coatings Dry Film Lubricants Sporting goods to offer moisture resistance, lubricity, wear resistance Mold release Textile/Fabric coatings

8 What a manufacturer said when asked why they chose CERFLON ® Next-generation CERFLON ® technology was chosen for this advanced product because of its superior corrosion protection, lubricity and anti-wear properties. Nothing we have seen comes close to Cerflon performance.

10 SLA 2010 Testing Falex Wear (ASTM D2670) Falex EP (ASTM D 3233) Shell Four-Ball Wear (ASTM D 4172) Standard Test Method for Wear Preventive Characteristics of Lubricating Fluid Shell Four-Ball EP (ASTM D 2783) Standard Method for Measurement of Extreme Pressure Properties of Lubricating Fluids

11 Falex Tester Set-up

12 Falex Test This is one of the most recognized ASTM test methods to determine the lubrication ability of products. It allows you to test lubricants to a point of failure. Common measurements from this test are: Coefficient of Friction Maximum pressure (load) until failure

13 Falex Test Results Sample Extreme Pressure (lbs) C.O.F. Base oil Base oil / Graphite Base oil / MoS Base oil / PTFE Base oil / Boron Nitride Base oil / Cerflon ®

14 Shell Four-Ball Test Graphic

15 Shell Four-Ball Test An ASTM standard that determines lubrication ability of fluids Typical measurements allow one to focus not only on lubrication but the durability of the lubricant Typical results expressed as wear resistance (scar) and extreme pressure ( lubricating ability)

16 Shell Four-Ball Test Results Base oil Base oil / Graphite Base oil / MoS Base oil / PTFE Base oil / BN Base oil / Cerflon ® Wear Scar 40kg (mm) Extreme Pressure Weld (kg)

17 Formulating with Cerflon ®

18 Taber Abrasion Resistance (500gram) Conducted at Acheson 9/03 Emralon 334 T-013 (Cerflon) Avg. Dry Film Thickness (mil) 0.40, , 0.42 Weight loss (mg) 23, , 8.8 Cycles 250, ,350 Loss mg/cycle.092, ,.025 Avg. mg/cycle loss Reduction in loss 64% COF of Emralon 334 is COF of Cerflon is The improved COF is probably due to the gloss being higher. Emralon 334 had a Gloss 60 of 3.0 while Cerflon had a Gloss 60 of 5.3 on a 10 scale

19 Dry Film Testing Mandrel Bend (ASTM D 522-method B) Used to test resistance of a coating to cracking and / or detachment from a metal substrate Inclined Plane (ASTM D 4518-method A) Measuring static friction of coating surfaces Impact Test (ASTM D 2794) Panels were subjected to both direct and indirect impact of an 3.6 Kg, 12.5mm hemispherical weight dropped from a maximum height of 1.2 M Cross Hatch Adhesion (ASTM D 3359) Standard Test Methods for Measuring Adhesion by Tape Test

21 Dry Film Comparisons

22 Dry Film Conclusions Outstanding Adhesion Improved Coefficient of friction Comparable flexibility
