Scientifically-Engineered Systems Create Short- and Long-Term Value for Building Projects -

PITTSBURGH, May 21, 2010 - Pittsburgh-based SYNTHEON Inc., a premier building science company
specializing in high-efficiency building envelope systems, will introduce a
pair of new and innovative construction products at the Greenbuild Middle
East World Summit & Expo in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The products are
part of SYNCORE(TM) Building Envelope Systems and include Elemix(R) Concrete
Additive and accel-E(TM) Steel Thermal Efficient Panel.

With a synthesis of high-performance materials, proprietary technology,
and advanced component design, SYNTHEON(TM) products contribute to
high-efficiency building envelopes that are faster to build, lighter, and
more flexible than ever before.

SYNCORE Building Envelope Systems are engineered to provide superior
building advantages for architects, builders, developers, and building owners
with a single simple process. Integrated components and building materials
from the SYNCORE Wall, Roof, Deck and Additives lines are lighter and
assemble more rapidly and with less skilled labor than traditional
construction, yet perform with superior strength and insulation capabilities.

"SYNTHEON systems work on a global scale to provide high-efficiency
building envelopes with a vast network of distribution partners. We market
worldwide, offering systematized solutions that capitalize on the latest
technologies to enable the building of environmentally and economically-sound
structures that perform to consistent, reliable standards," said Tony Torres,
vice president of Building & Construction for SYNTHEON Inc. "The upcoming
Greenbuild Middle East World Summit & Expo is the perfect opportunity to get
our unique and innovative products into the hands of the architects,
engineers, developers, and contractors who are building structures of the

Hosted by Clarion Events Ltd. and part of the Arabian Construction Week,
the Greenbuild Middle East World Summit & Expo will offer business
opportunities for showcasing various building and construction products and
services. The event will be held at Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Centre
and will act as a major hub of pioneers in the building and construction
industry. Organizers are expecting the attendance of representatives from
leading companies worldwide.

SYNTHEON's products and processes are engineered to enhance sustainable
building practices throughout the world. This new approach to building
responsibly frees architects and builders to design and construct lighter,
more energy efficient buildings with flexibility that only a SYNCORE product
solution can provide.

    - Elemix(R) Concrete Additive is lightweight, durable, and globally
      consistent - a flexible material for most concrete applications,
      including precast, ready-mix, manufactured concrete products, and more.
      Elemix additive re-invents the power and possibilities of concrete with
       a new, lightweight polymer additive that uses its dynamic structure
      and dispersion characteristics to become an integral part of the
      concrete matrix.

    - accel-E(TM) Steel Thermal Efficient Panel is energy efficiency,
      construction efficiency, framing, cavity insulation, and continuous
      insulation... all in one step. Building envelopes go up faster and more
      efficiently with the accel-E panel, which combines the strength and
      performance of cold-formed steel framing with the superior insulation
      properties of expanded polystyrene (EPS) using Plastbau(R) technology.

Building with SYNTHEON systems contribute significantly to LEED(R) and
International Green Building Standard points for superior building
certification and better operating values. For more information about
