    TORONTO, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - Cymat Technologies Ltd. is pleased to announce
receipt of a purchase order from a major US armored vehicle manufacturer for
13 SmartMetal(TM) assemblies to be delivered in August 2009. These prototypes
will be incorporated in and tested as part of a complete armoring system for
the proposed vehicle.
    The company, one of the attendees at Cymat's recent Industry Week in
Nevada, will test these parts for a next generation military vehicle. Cymat's
Industry Week demonstrated SmartMetal's(TM) ability to reduce blast energy
transfer by at least a 7 to 1 ratio.
    "It is anticipated that this testing program could lead to a full
commercial vehicle contract thereby further validating SmartMetal(TM) as a key
component in future survivability solutions within military vehicles," said
Tim Hardman, President of Cymat. He added "Cymat continues to collaborate with
major military OEM's and integrators by engineering SmartMetal(TM) into their
survivability solutions."
