Foreign Multinationals, Fortune 100s, Government Agencies, and Other Major Industry Partners Fuel QuantumSphere’s Growth, Manufacturing Facility Expansion, to Meet Global Demand for Advanced Material Applications and Products

Santa Ana, CA, U.S.A. – September 26, 2005 – QuantumSphere, Inc., the leading manufacturer of metallic nanopowders for applications in aerospace, defense, energy and other markets demanding advanced material applications, announced it opened a new manufacturing facility and relocated the firm’s national headquarters to Santa Ana, CA, just ten minutes from Orange County’s John Wayne Airport. QuantumSphere’s expanding customer base and science team necessitated the need for a new location to meet explosive product demand. QuantumSphere is the only supplier of the world’s highest quality nano nickel/cobalt alloy and other magnetic, conductive and catalytic metallic nanopowders, including QSI-nano™ nickel (n-Ni), QSI-nano™ silver, QSI-nano™ copper, and other proprietary alloys. These materials will replace platinum as the main catalyst in fuel cells and other membrane electrode assemblies and provide a renewable source of power. This news follows the company’s previous announcement that an internationally renowned, fully independent organization validated that QuantumSphere successfully achieved consistent and repeatable performance and validation milestones with QuantumSphere’s proprietary high-quality nano-Nickel/Cobalt alloy for use in battery and fuel cell electrodes.Ê As a result, QuantumSphere provides a clear replacement solution in the multi-billion dollar platinum electrode market that will deeply impact the OEM and consumer marketplace while reshaping the platinum group metal catalyst landscape. The new manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters is located at:

2905 Tech Center Drive,

Santa Ana, CA 92705.

Sales, Technical and Customer Support Services personnel can be reached at 714-545-NANO (6266).

“We continue to execute our business strategy of rapid, deliberate, organic growth to meet the needs of our clients and partners in markets that demand advanced material applications,” said Kevin Maloney, CEO, QuantumSphere, Inc. “Customer demand for QuantumSphere’s products continues to exceed our aggressive sales and production goals. Our new manufacturing facility, combined with our ever-expanding team of world-class employees will ensure the quality and consistency of support to better serve our national, and international, customer base, while providing an exciting technical career path for the new members of QuantumSphere’s technical service team,” Maloney added.
