DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. and NAPOLEONVILLE, La., March 31, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Red Reef Laboratories International, Inc. (Pink Sheets:RRLB), a diversified scientific research, development, and marketing group focused on commercializing a variety of chemical and biological products, has engaged Bob Hilson & Co. (, a large roofing contractor, to conduct field tests of Red Reef's Mold and Mildew Removal formulas. Hilson, a highly respected roofer whose main office is in Miami-Dade County, Florida, has been in business since 1979, and operates statewide. Red Reef chose Hilson to perform the field tests because the company has extensive experience in removing mold and mildew from roofs, a common problem in Florida. Bob Hilson, who has been experimenting for years with a number of products especially designed to remove mold and mildew, is quoted: "The main issue with products that eliminate mold and mildew is the incidental damage to shrubs and landscape plants, which can be very costly and sometimes difficult to replace. Most products we have tested eliminate mold with varying degrees of effectiveness and also vary in ease of application and cost, but almost all require special care and procedures to avoid damage to shrubs, as well as damage to the roofing materials. Florida particularly has a type of mold which discolors many roofs and does not respond to many commonly used chemicals. Any product that can eliminate or reduce these concerns will have a competitive edge in the roofing industry."

Mr. Hilson continued, "Another important consideration is how long a treated roof will remain mold- and mildew-free. We will apply TKO and other formulas Red Reef develop to compare every aspect of performance with competitive products we currently use or will consider, including pressurized water, which is probably the most popular approach to an unsightly roof due to mold and mildew."

"We are looking forward with great anticipation to the appraisal from Bob Hilson & Co. Our personal experience, though limited, has been very positive. Where we have applied TKO on roofing materials ourselves, the results have been dramatic and led us to seek a professional, unbiased field test with as many variables and comparisons as possible. This will allow us to adjust the formula or design new formulas if needed, to perform to maximum expectations. Bob Hilson & Co. is the ideal candidate to perform these tests," said Dr. Claus Wagner-Bartak, President of Red Reef. He went on to say, "If our specific proprietary formulas perform as well as we anticipate under all conditions, Red Reef will seek to establish a Business Opportunity Franchise in Florida, and in time, beyond. TKO has already been proven cost efficient and effective in removing mold and mildew from all other hard surfaces encountered to date. The roofing industry presents unique challenges due to the large variety of materials, environments and exposure to the elements under which it must perform. If our proprietary formulas meet the challenge, we would welcome an opportunity to compete in this lucrative market."
