    RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CVD Equipment
 Corporation (CVD) (Amex:   CVV) has been selected by CNT Technologies (CNT)
 to supply an EasyTube 3000 Carbon Nanotube System for use by Los Alamos
 National Laboratory (LANL) to further develop the commercialization of
 carbon nanotube fibers. Recent articles discussing the CNT and LANL
 relationship are available at and The ultra strong,
 lightweight carbon-nanotube fibers are stronger than steel and lighter in
 weight. Applications abound for the use of these fibers in aircraft,
 automobiles, defense and numerous other applications.
     CVD started shipping the EasyTube & EasyWire 2000 and 3000 series early
 this year and it has been well received by research scientists at numerous
 Universities, Government and Industrial Research Laboratories throughout
 the world. The EasyTube system is used for the growth of single and
 multiwall aligned Carbon Nanotubes while the EasyWire system is used for
 the growth of Nanowires used in electronic applications.
     Len Rosenbaum, CEO and President of CVD Equipment Corporation comments
 "We are very excited with the acceptance we have received by our customers
 for the EasyTube and EasyWire 2000 and 3000 series equipment. The systems
