ClearLite’s Revolutionary ArmorLite™: Third-
Party Lab Testing Helps Validate as A Safer
Cambridge Materials Testing Ltd. Finds No Mercury Being Detected After Breaking and Crushing
April 06, 2010 08:33 AM Eastern Daylight Time
BOCA RATON, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Clear-Lite Holdings, Inc. (“ClearLite”) (OTCBB: CLRH),
a leading innovator of eco-friendly lighting and the appreciably safer ArmorLite™: A Safer CFL™, today
announced that its flagship product was tested by a third-party testing lab, Cambridge Material Testing Limited
("CMTL"), in Ontario, Canada. After breaking and crushing the glass* within each CFL, the relative airborne
mercury concentrations were well below the limit of detection of the lab’s Mercury Analyzer.
Unlike the commonly-found spiral CFLs, the patent-pending ArmorLite looks like an incandescent bulb. It is, in fact,
a compact fluorescent light bulb hidden inside a glass-shaped, safety-coated cover that is similar in design to the
incandescent light bulb that seems to be preferred by most consumers. The safety coating is designed to help capture
broken glass and mercury, providing an added level of safety between you and the toxins inside the CFL.
When tested at CMTL, the levels of mercury recorded were below the lowest level that the testing equipment was
capable of detecting. The report noted that according to “the manufacturer of the mercury analyzer, a reading of less
than 0.003mg/m3 cannot be obtained.”
“Having results that show the analyzer not detecting any mercury from an independent testing facility helps validate
that the ArmorLite CFL is a Safer CFL™,” said Thomas Irvine, president and CEO of ClearLite.
U.S. consumers are becoming more aware of the serious safety concerns surrounding mercury contamination and
are taking note of the EPA’s warnings about broken CFL bulbs. This concern can be further enhanced by a report
from Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Toxic Substance and Disease Registry, which
stated,“Inhalation of mercury vapor is the primary route of exposure to elemental mercury. Inhaled vapor is almost
completely absorbed by the lungs (75-80%). Neither liquid mercury nor mercury vapor has an odor and thus,
chemical odor provides no warning of hazardous concentrations. Mercury vapor is heavier than air and may
therefore accumulate in poorly ventilated or low-lying areas.” It went on to add that children, “may be exposed to
higher levels than adults in the same location because of their short stature and the higher levels of mercury vapor
found nearer to the ground.” http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/MHMI/mmg46.html
"ClearLite’s ArmorLite technology provides a clear solution,” said Irvine. “We are looking forward to making A
Safer CFL™ widely available so that consumers, especially families with children, can enjoy the full benefits that our
