First Licensee for Canadian Oriented Wood-Plastic Composite Process

23 September 2004

PSA Composites Inc. has entered a licensing agreement with Green Forest Engineered Products LLC of Montana, to manufacture and sell specific products for the lumber market using PSAC's wood-plastic composite technology.

PSAC (Guelph, ON) and Green Forest will work together on other potential joint applications and contract manufacturing opportunities.

""This agreement is significant to PSAC as it is the first commercial-scale production of our oriented wood-plastic composite material,"" explains Frank Maine, PSAC founder, chairman and chief technology officer.

PSAC's technology produces a low-density, oriented extruded profile with superior strength and stiffness, plus lower weight than traditional wood-plastic composites.

""We believe that this second-generation technology will move wood-plastic composites in the mainstream for construction materials,"" says Steve Wheeler, president of Green Forest. ""The density advantage, strength and toughness of this product will set the standard for the industry.""

The initial production line for oriented composites was installed at Green Forest's Montana facility in February 2004. A second line is expected to be operational later this year.
