    TROY, N.Y., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Evident Technologies
 (http://www.evidenttech.com) today introduced a comprehensive product line of
 EviComposites(TM) - quantum dots integrated into a series of common resins and
 polymer matrix materials widely used in many commercial manufacturing
 processes and products. Evident engineered its proprietary EviDot(TM) quantum
 dots into a series of new easy-to-use forms designed to speed the development
 of new materials and new products by making quantum dot nanomaterials more
 applicable to common manufacturing processes.
     "Quantum dots can be fragile and hard to functionalize but the focus of
 our business has always been on stabilizing them so they become more highly
 functional and easy to use," said Clint Ballinger, CEO of Evident
 Technologies. "Putting our proprietary quantum dots into a range of common
 plastic materials accomplishes this on a broad scale, bridges a critical gap
 in the field, and can expand and accelerate the use of quantum dots in
 creating new products."
     EviComposites have wide applicability for applications ranging from
 paints, inks, molded parts, films, fibers, solar cells, optical standards or
 numerous other areas. The EviComposite resins are available in Ultraviolet
 (UV) curable clear resins, as well as Thermal and UV Sol-gels. The
 EviComposite particles and powders are available in polycarbonates,
 polystyrene, Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) and polyethylene. The
 EviComposites are available in colors ranging from blue to into reds, with a
 selected set of polymers in the near infrared.
     "A critical problem with any emerging technology is driving trial usage,
 which in turn drives application development and market growth," said Sean
 Murdock, Executive Director of the NanoBusiness Alliance.  "To the extent that
 EviComposites are able to retain the nanoscale phenomena of quantum dots in a
 'conventional' material toolkit, it will accelerate the adoption of the
 technology by reducing the learning curve and transaction cost of trial
     EviComposites are available immediately, in quantities from 1 gram to
