As a result of this notable achievement, Eco Red Shield protection will continue to gain industry momentum while simultaneously cultivating consumer awareness. Additionally, the Company has received several inquiries from builders around the world for inclusion of Eco Red Shield coatings into currently planned construction projects as a result of viewing our products in Material ConneXion's library.

"As we continue to work diligently in the planning and engineering phases revolving around rebuilding efforts for the heavily hit Northeastern U.S., recognition by Material ConneXion and their global material library will only increase the awareness and exclusive benefits of this technically advanced building material. Leveraging the physical properties of Eco Red Shield protected lumber including GREENGUARD Certification for indoor air quality, featuring encapsulated protection against mold, termites, rot and now fire, all engineered assemblies designated on the Company's Hurricane Breakaway Structure platform have been designed for "Safety first." With the Company focused on long term objectives, and fortified by industry leading defensive building technology, no community can afford to rebuild again in the same traditional old methods of building, as they are unsustainable and will experience the same devastating consequences at the next severe storm or hurricane," stated Steve Conboy, President & CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc.
