Eco-Titan Poles testing scheduled for ENA Fire Standards at Western Fire Center to meet Australian Fire Requirements

DESCRIPTION: The Eco-Titan Utility Distribution Pole has initiated testing in accordance with ENA pole fire tests to insure proper application in Australia and other potential bush fire prone markets worldwide.

ATLANTA, GA February 5, 2010— The Eco-Titan Utility Distribution Pole is initiating the ENA pole fire test method at the Western Fire Center in Kelso Washington. The large scale testing was developed in accordance with Australian Standard (AS) 1530.8.1 to replicate bushfire events where poles are exposed to contact with flame from the fire front as well as flame from adjacent burning vegetation. Fire testing is done following the ASTM D2898 accelerated aging tests. Mike White, Western Fire Center stated “ This test protocol written by David Gardner for the Forest & Wood Products Australia and The Energy Networks Association (ENA) is the test suite expected by Australian authorities” The complete testing cycle is expected to take about 3-4 months. Upon completion, CMT Worldwide and Dulhunty Power will release the results.

The Eco-Titan pole is manufactured with a high performance composite that had its origins in the molten steel manufacturing industry. The original use was for small batch steel production ladles where the composite material held the molten steel at temperatures approaching 3,000 degrees F for extended periods. As a result of this high temperature application CMT Worldwide and Dulhunty Power are confident in successful test results. The complete test protocol information is available by contacting our web site.

CMT Worldwide is aggressively pursuing all required test protocols to insure necessary application testing is performed to meet local governmental and utility standards.

The Eco-Titan Pole represents the first new pole product introduced in over 15 years. Composite Materials Technology and CMT Worldwide have invested 10 years developing this patented ground breaking product. Utilizing Owen Corning Technical Fabrics Alkali Resistant Rovings and high performance cement matrix, Eco-Titan delivers a superior cost competitive advantage, lower shipping costs and better performance over the products life. Additionally, all products include Radio Frequency Identification Chips for remote tracking, quality control and maintenance.

Dulhunty Power Ltd, the technology licensee in Australia, has commenced construction of a purpose built production facility near Geelong in the state of Victoria. Poles from the new plant will be available in June and it is expected that the Eco-Titan pole will be a valuable option for Australian Utilities facing increasing bushfire events each summer. The tragic fires which occurred in Victoria in February 2009 with huge loss of life expose power lines to destructive conditions and loss of power due to burnt poles can increase risks to human life and property.
