MTCH news
« on: April 06, 2010, 07:32:23 AM »
LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MATECH Corp. (OTCBB:MTCH - News) (MATECH) announced that its Chief of Operations was invited to meet with officials from the Department of Transportation in Virginia (VDOT). Ms. Miceli met with officials at headquarters in Richmond, VA and the meeting was broadcast across the state to the various DOT districts.



Various officials across the state of Virginia participated in a presentation on MATECH's patented technology, the Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor (EFS) System and participated in a meeting on March 25, 2010. The intent of the meeting was to determine the structures within the VDOT system that would benefit from the use of EFS.



MATECH has a proven track record of saving bridge owners money through improving bridge management and public safety with its cutting edge technology, the EFS System. Through eliminating subjectivity of inspections for cracking in bridge members (the FHWA has stated that 90% of these cracks are missed with visual inspection), MATECH is helping to eliminate wasted funds by prioritizing repairs and verifying their effectiveness immediately.



Marybeth Miceli, MATECH's Chief of Operations, says, "VDOT is a progressive transportation department that supports great technologies to aid them in making better bridge management decisions. We are looking forward to working with them on their structures again."

MATECH Corp. Discusses How Over 90% of Cracks in Bridges are Missed During Visual Inspections According to Federal Studies


MATECH's Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor Provides Advanced and Reliable Solution to Detect Cracks in Bridges, and Prevent Potential Catastrophe
LOS ANGELES, Apr 14, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MATECH Corp. (OTCBB:MTCH) (MATECH) announced today that its revolutionary Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor (EFS) provides the advanced objective reporting capability necessary to secure the nation's infrastructure and thwart economic and humanitarian catastrophe. MATECH's EFS system is the only nondestructive technology capable of detecting growing cracks as small as 0.01 inches in metal bridges and structures.
The most common method of bridge inspection is visual inspection, which relies on the subjective judgment of the inspector. Using this method 90% of fatigue cracks are missed, and 80% of identified "cracks" later prove to be false-positives, according to government reports. By taking the subjectivity out of the inspection process, MATECH's EFS technology offers a unique technologically advanced solution compared to current unsafe and unreliable methods of bridge inspection.

"Subjective methods of inspection such as visual inspection are simply unreliable compared with advanced technological solutions like our EFS System," said Tony Cataldo, CEO of MATECH Corp. "No matter how skilled and thorough an inspector, the possibility for human error is always too great. Experienced bridge inspectors have even called their own work into question, raising serious doubts about the validity and safety of current bridge inspection methods."

Investigations by news organizations have found various discrepancies between identical forms composed during the inspection process and the forms later submitted to the state. Incorrect or missing measurements have also shown to be an issue.

MATECH's EFS(TM) has proven its efficacy on over 35 bridges in 10 different states across the nation, as well as several railroad bridges.
