last july, or thereabouts, i believe you raised these same questions on other chat boards. so, i called the people at msc to verify my perceptions of this product. here are a few of the comments from the individual who is the head of this program(mr. graham fairley. 619-614-1203). and these are direct or nearly verbatim comments from him. 1".THIS IS THE BEST TECHNOLOGY THAT WE HAVE EVER SEEN". 2. very rarely in the history of this company(msc) do we get involved in the development of a product. normally we just make the film. we were so impressed with this technology that we decided to get involved with the development this time(only the 2nd time that he can remember them doing that). we have already hired several more chemists to work on this product. we have already received tremendous interest in these type of products, and they will not be ready for awhile, so there is tremendous demand out there already. he did caution that it was not a sure thing,that there was still more development left to go, but he was very, very positive on this whole matter. i spoke to him again about 2 weeks ago( a short conversation). he said that he was meeting with the people at refr early this month,that they were talking to hankuk routinely, and that they had some good ideas on how they would like to coat the film with some scratch resistant film. he did not express any real concerns, but suggested that i call him back in a few weeks for an update. just for the record, i thought enough of his first comments to buy on additional 10k shares last summer, and an additional 15k shares in the last two weeks .personally, i think that this should confirm a lot of what mr. harary has been telling us-that things are going very well, other companies are doing a lot of their own research, and that new combinations of materials are being tested by refr and other companies.
