ORIGINAL: FendX Announces First Real-World Performance Testing Site for REPELWRAP(TM) Film at Award Winning Giulietta Restaurant

Nanotechnology testing results will be used to continue to move towards large scale commercial production

2024-05-03 09:42 ET - News Release

Oakville, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 3, 2024) - FendX Technologies Inc. (CSE: FNDX) (OTCQB: FDXTF) (FSE: E8D) (the "Company" or "FendX"), a nanotechnology company developing surface protection coatings is pleased to announce that the Company is preparing to conduct real-world testing and assessment of the repelling properties of REPELWRAP™ film at Giulietta, an award winning and MICHELIN Guide recommended Italian fine dining restaurant located in downtown Toronto, Ontario.

FendX is currently engaged with Dunmore International Inc. ("Dunmore"), to conduct pilot test runs on their commercial manufacturing line to optimize the manufacturing process to create films for testing in real-world settings. After successful completion of optimizing the manufacturing process, FendX intends to conduct real-world testing at the high-end restaurant Giulietta to assess performance of REPELWRAP™ film on high touch surfaces in the restaurant, pursuant to a previously signed letter of intent. Testing will entail applying REPELWRAP™ film to high touch surfaces and assessing their performance over a four-week timeframe. FendX expects the results obtained will confirm the film maintains its repelling properties as demonstrated in McMaster University's lab.

David Minicucci, co-owner of Giulietta and Osteria Giulia restaurants states, "We are excited to be participating in FendX's pilot testing of their film to help protect surfaces and keep people safer."

Dr. Carolyn Myers, CEO of FendX states, "We are pleased with the advancements made to optimize REPELWRAP™ film at Dunmore and are excited to be preparing to conduct real-world testing at Giulietta." Dr. Myers continues, "Our intention is to announce additional test sites in various industries to conduct real-world testing, and these additional results, together with the findings from Giulietta, should provide us with robust data on the performance of REPELWRAP™ film that should contribute to the final product design and allow us to move to commercial production."
