POUR THROUGH FILTERS, INC. ACQUIRES NOVEL CARBON-GRAPHITE TECHNOLOGY; NAME CHANGE TO POLYCARBONIX WILL SHORTLY BE EFFECTED

 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Pour Through Filters, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PURF) has announced that it has acquired an exclusive sublicense to novel process technology for making superior forms of carbon and graphite and a theoretical process for making diamonds through further processing of the graphite material. The process includes a proprietary method of making a material with charac- teristics virtually identical to natural ivory. The key to the licensed technology is the utilization of polymer microcrystals of various types. They are an essential basic ingredient. The microcrystals may be made from waste or off-spec polymer materials, some of which are otherwise non-biodegradable. The carbon-graphite process technology acquired differs vastly from conventional processes in use. Patents are in the process of being applied for. A change in the company's name to Polycarbonix Inc. has been approved by the Board of Directors.
 The technology has been developed by Dr. O.A. Battista, a well known research scientist and prolific inventor, and represents many years of research and development work at his Research Institute in Fort Worth, Texas. He is known worldwide as the "Father of Microcrystal Polymer Science." Dr. Battista will serve as Senior Vice-President, Science and Technology and will become a member of the Board of Directors. The complete new Board of Directors will be announced shortly.
 The market opportunities for this technology are viewed as quite considerable. Initial funding is being arranged.
 Pour Through Filters, Inc. is traded over-the-counter in the United States, and is quoted on the Electronic Bulletin Board under the symbol PURF.
