Illumination Polymer Technologies, Inc. Prospects Brighter than Ever!

NAPERVILLE, Ill., May 30 /PRNewswire/ --

Illumination Polymer Technologies, Inc. (IPT), a Goeken Group Company, is the owner of PolyBrite(TM), a patented polymer light transmitting technology. PolyBrite(TM) is a unique polymer/LED combination that radiates and disperses light throughout the polymer lens material.

IPT originally incorporated PolyBrite(TM) into two lines of safety products. The product lines include SportBrite(TM) recreational safety gear and Personal Safetyware(TM) industrial safety products. Operating on standard replaceable batteries, IPT's SportBrite(TM) and Personal Safetyware(TM) lines give the wearer up to one mile of visibility! Both lines include self-illuminating vests, belts, arm/ankle bands and dog collars. SportBrite(TM) is perfect for runners, walkers, in-line skaters, campers or any outdoor fitness enthusiast concerned with personal safety. Personal Safetyware(TM) is ideal for numerous occupations that require enhanced visibility such as construction and road crews, and emergency personnel. Personal Safetyware(TM) has recently begun manufacturing a PolyBrite(TM) baton that is ideal for airport crews and police departments.

Having tremendous success with such unique product lines, IPT has received extensive interest in OEM and licensing applications for PolyBrite(TM) technology. PolyBrite(TM) can be extruded into various shapes and forms, and can be molded for specific applications. IPT's PolyBrite(TM) technology is now being incorporated into bicycle and in-line skating accessories, backpacks, training and warm-up suits. Recent licensing contracts have been established with The Huffy Corporation in order to private label IPT's recreational line.

"Huffy is using the brand name Twilight Wear and is planning on distributing Twilight Wear throughout major retail chains," says Carl Scianna, President of IPT and inventor of the PolyBrite(TM) technology. Inlighten/Noma, the world's largest manufacturer of Christmas decorations, also has established an agreement with IPT to integrate PolyBrite(TM) into various Christmas items.

IPT has also recently become one of the sponsors of Chris Johnson, WBF Light Heavyweight Champion of the World! Mr. Johnson will be at IPT's booth #2441 at the SportsLab Expo & Conference signing autographs and taking complementary photos with the media and buyers on Tuesday, June 13 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday, June 14 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Illumination Polymer Technologies, Inc. is on the cutting edge of light transmission technology and is one of three Goeken Group Companies committed to saving lives. The Goeken Group is planning for an IPO this year. Jack Goeken, founder and CEO of the Goeken Group, has formed renowned companies such as MCI, FTD Mercury Network, Airfone, Inc., and InFlight Phone.
