Nurescell Inc. Announces Successful Irradiation Testing Results.
Nurescell Inc. (OTC BB:NUSL) Thursday announced that its proprietary material has successfully completed the fifth level of radiation resistance testing at the University of Missouri.
As previously announced in Nurescell's July 12, 1999 news release, Nurescell and the University of Missouri jointly decided to extend the scope of testing for Nurescell's material to a fifth level of elevated exposure based upon successful results from initial testing of the material.
Nurescell's proprietary material survived without any apparent physical damage after being subjected to two weeks of testing that reached a level of 1 GRad of irradiation (G = billion) at the University of Missouri. This significant validation supports the company's high level of confidence in its proprietary material as applied to radiation shielding and nuclear encapsulation.
Dr. Adrian Joseph, president of Nurescell, stated, "Nurescell's material is uniquely suited to encapsulation and shielding against radiation. It is Nurescell's strategy to subject our material to independent validation and testing to document its efficacy for use in the nuclear industry, and I am pleased with the results which have been obtained so far. Our material will provide solution for shielding and encapsulation that is affordable and effective."
Nurescell was formed for the purpose of developing and commercially exploiting a proprietary shielding technology (the "Nurescell Technology") for use by the nuclear power industry and others producing, handling, or storing radioactive materials. The Nurescell Technology is being designed for retrofitting and incorporation into the structural components of new and existing nuclear reactor facilities in order to provide a cost-effective safeguard from the lethal effects of radiation. It is also being designed as a containment material which will provide an attractive alternative to the conventional concrete/steel entombment and glassification technologies currently used to store ever-increasing amounts of spent nuclear fuel and other radioactive wastes. In addition, Nurescell's material is expected to provide an innovative shielding that is critical to advanced accelerator and defense research applications.
