Barotex Adds Strength, Cuts Weight in DiMora’s $2 Million Automobile

Chatsworth, CA, August 11, 2008-Barotex Technology Corporation (BARX), inventor and producer of the remarkable Barotex® inorganic fiber, announced today that it has become the newest Technology Partner to work with DiMora Motorcar to develop and produce the Natalia SLS 2 sport luxury sedan.
Barotex materials have characteristics that make them superior to carbon fiber, fiberglass, Kevlar, and other advanced materials in a variety of applications. "Barotex enables our design team to create some of the strongest and most durable automotive components ever produced," stated Alfred DiMora, Founder and CEO of DiMora Motorcar.
DiMora further noted, "For the Natalia SLS 2, Barotex will be formed into various body panels and our revolutionary D-Tek™ chassis, where its high strength will add significantly to the automobile's torsional rigidity. Yet our chassis will be more than a thousand pounds lighter than the conventional steel chassis found on other luxury automobiles of similar size."
Barotex starts as volcanic rock, widely available throughout the world. "In contrast, carbon fiber products are petroleum-based, and we know about the challenges that involves," said Lilo Beuzieron, CEO of Barotex Technology Corporation and inventor of Barotex. "Not only is lava rock more abundant, but our manufacturing process requires far less energy. It is friendly to the environment, and the automobiles built with Barotex are lighter, so they use less energy every mile traveled."
"We recently received our patent for the proprietary process used to produce Barotex," noted Beuzieron. "We are delighted that the first production automobile to integrate this technology will be DiMora’s Natalia SLS 2, which abounds with technological breakthroughs from bumper to bumper."
The versatility of Barotex fiber materials brings exceptional uses to a wide variety of products for markets including automotive, aerospace, ballistics, industrial, and sporting goods. In fabric form, Barotex offers an excellent combination of properties, from high strength and impact resistance to fire resistance and design adaptability. The design potential and flexibility possible are almost unlimited, thanks to the wide range of yarn sizes and weaving patterns that are available. Barotex does not stretch or shrink after exposure to very high or low temperatures, making it extremely stable in the production of automobile bodies and related parts.
The high strength-to-weight ratio of Barotex fiber makes it a superior material in many automotive applications. Barotex fiber is an inorganic material that will not burn or support combustion, which also improves passenger safety.
DiMora added, "When we began designing our 16-cylinder engine that would erupt with 1200 horsepower, we decided to call it the Volcano V16. It's only natural that we now surround the DiMora Volcano with volcanic rock from Barotex."
