Resin Systems Inc. Enters the Global Material Handling Market With Contract to Supply FMC Technologies, Inc.

    CALGARY, Jan. 31 /CNW/ - Resin Systems Inc. ("RS") (RS - TSX / RSSYF -
OTCBB), a composite products innovation company, announced today that the
exclusive agreement to supply VRoll(TM) composite tubes, previously announced
December 18, 2006, is with FMC Technologies' (NYSE - FTI) Material Handling
Solutions business for their new line of Link-Belt(R) Composite Conveyor Idler
    Composite idler rolls have great potential in the global material
handling market due to VRoll tubes being a stronger, lighter and more durable
alternative to the steel tubes used in traditional roller assemblies. They are
ideal for corrosive, low temperature or abrasive industrial environments such
as coal, aggregates, iron ore, copper, potash and salt mines.
    "This agreement compliments and strengthens our commitment to advanced
conveying technology," said Robert A. Campbell, General Manager of FMC
Technologies' Material Handling Solutions. "Our new line of Link-Belt(R)
Conveyor Idler Rolls, using RS's VRoll composite tube, will feature
significantly longer roll life, reduced energy requirements and lower
replacement costs than standard steel rolls."
    "This important agreement kick starts our next innovation - VRoll," said
Paul Giannelia, President and Chief Executive Officer of RS. "FMC
Technologies' proven history in the global bulk material handling arena makes
them the ideal company to take VRoll to market quickly."
    Deliveries to FMC Technologies are expected to begin in the first half of

headquartered in Tupelo, MS. The operation has been in business for over 100
