KMB Technologies Introduces Polymer Coated Urea Technology at GIS
New SurfCoteTM-N & XRTTM will be available in 2008

KMB Technologies is introducing a polymer coated urea technology at the Golf Industry Show (GIS) that promises to extend the nutrient release of fertilizers. SurfCoteTM-N is a controlled-release fertilizer for sports turf maintenance and will be available exclusively through Knox Fertilizer distribution in the Shaw's Turf Food line for spring 2008.  Also in this years introduction is the controlled-release nitrogen fertilizer XRTTM which will be marketed through KMB's formulator/blender distribution throughout North America and abroad

The Surf® technology, or Sustained Uniform Release Fertilizer, is a patented polymer coating that represents a new era of "smart" fertilizers that will help golf course superintendents, lawn care professionals, landscaping companies, as well as specialty crop growers, improve their environmental impact as well as their bottom line.

"At a time of increased environmental awareness, SurfCote-N as well as XRT are the right products at the right time for our customers," says Robert Shaw, President of KMB Technologies LLC. "With slow release technology, a consistent nutrient source is always available to the plant for optimum growth but without the time-consuming and costly inconvenience of repeat applications. SurfCote-N also reduces the opportunity for plant burn and over application and waste of nutrients.

Nearly four years in development, the Surf technology has undergone three full years of rigorous, independent field testing with Universities in south, east and Midwest, each demonstrating consistent results over diverse geography and conditions.

XRT, or Extended Release Fertilizer Technology, is the newest and most economical PCU in the market place. XRT offers formulators and ultimately the end-user increased nitrogen efficiency, longevity, and value compared to PCSCU's which are and have been the industry norm for several decades.
