TOR Minerals Develops New Nanoparticle Pigments


CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TOR Minerals
(Nasdaq: TORM) announced that it has developed two new Alumina Mono Oxyhydrate
based pigments for use in the coatings industry. The pigments are both in the
nanoparticle range and the company has registered the names TOR BRITE(TM) and
TOR COAT(TM) for marketing identification. Richard Bowers, President and CEO,
said that the Company had sold quantities in advance of commercial production
which is expected to begin in September of this year. He said that the new
pigments imparted hardness and gloss to coatings which improved
characteristics like impact and scratch resistance.

These new pigments are the first of a number of new products the company
is introducing that utilize the company's propriety production process. The
propriety process allows TOR to economically produce commercial quantities of
nanoparticle size pigments. TOR offers its customers the ability to make
materials that are harder, stronger, higher gloss, more fire retardant, and
more wear resistant. Future applications planned for its nanoparticle
pigments include paper and plastics.

Based in Corpus Christi, Texas, TOR Minerals manufactures pigments in
Texas, Malaysia, and the Netherlands which are marketed worldwide.
