FendX Continues to Advance Optimization of REPELWRAP(TM) Film with Completion of Pilot Manufacturing Run on Dunmore’s Commercial Manufacturing Equipment and Provides Corporate Update

Oakville, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – March 28, 2024) – FendX Technologies Inc. (CSE: FNDX) (OTCQB: FDXTF) (FSE: E8D) (the “Company” or “FendX”), a nanotechnology company developing surface protection coatings to reduce the spread of pathogens, is pleased to announce that the Company continues to streamline the manufacturing process through completion of a further pilot run on Dunmore International Corp.’s (“Dunmore”) commercial manufacturing equipment.

The latest pilot run provided valuable insights into the nano-particle deposition on the film, leading to further optimization of the manufacturing time. The first pilot run conducted confirmed automation of the manufacturing of REPELWRAP™ film formulation that resulted in successful coating of thousands of feet of film in minutes and each subsequent run pilot run provided important results to advance and streamline the manufacturing process. Achieving a final manufacturing process often entails conducting multiple pilot runs, with each of these runs providing meaningful information, resulting in fine-tuning the overall manufacturing process.

“Our continuous advancements achieved through insights gained from successive pilot runs brings us closer to a final commercial manufacturing process,” states Carolyn Myers, CEO of FendX. “Our commitment to advancing our products, including the REPELWRAP™ film, is reinforced by our collaborations with McMaster University and Dunmore, whose contributions play an important role in assisting us with the development and scale-up of our nanotechnology.”

The Company has entered into a series of development stage agreements with Dunmore, a Steel Partners Holdings L.P. (NYSE: SPLP) operating company to assess scale-up of REPELWRAP™ film and perform optimization work and pilot runs, starting in April 2023. On June 22, 2023, the Company announced Dunmore had successfully completed the first phase of the work to adapt McMaster University’s lab prototype formula to Dunmore’s manufacturing process. The second phase of the work, which is in progress, is to conduct automated pilot runs on Dunmore’s commercial manufacturing equipment to optimize the manufacturing process.

The Company also announces that it has entered into an investor relations services agreement with MIC Market Information & Content Publishing GmbH (“MIC”) on March 27, 2024. Pursuant to the agreement, MIC has agreed to provide investor communication and online marketing services to the Company for a period of six months until August 28, 2024 in exchange for a fee of 250,000 EUR upon receipt of an invoice. The services include analytics, content creation and publishing, digital and social media marketing and other related investor communication services.
