Billy Casper Golf Endorses Axion’s ‘Green’ Materials for On-Course Bridges, Walkways and Landscaping

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Dec. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Axion Golf – a
division of Axion International Holdings Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AXIH) and
provider of vehicular and pedestrian bridges and walkways made from the
company’s 100-percent recycled materials – has earned the endorsement of Billy
Casper Golf (“BCG”), one of America’s largest golf-course management
companies.

Recognized among golf’s foremost environmental stewards, BCG concluded the
strength, durability, eco-friendliness and cost-competitiveness of Axion
products are superior to conventional building materials such as wood, steel
and concrete. Keeping with strict adherence to sustainable maintenance
practices, BCG holds Axion as their preferred vendor to build bridges and
walkways, and integrate landscaping elements at courses it owns, leases and
third-party manages.

Co-founded by golf legend Billy Casper, BCG joins PGA TOUR star and course
architect Brad Faxon in its endorsement of Axion. Faxon will represent Axion
as company advisor, educating the golf industry about its products’ numerous
benefits. Tested to last more than 50 years with minimal wear and tear,
Axion’s patented composites resist the rotting, corrosion, leaching, cracking,
rust and overall deterioration associated with other construction materials.

“Axion represents a paradigm shift in golf course building and
maintenance,” says Bryan Bielecki, Vice President of Agronomy for BCG. “Any
time a company saves courses money and provides a better product, therein lies
a winner. When there’s a need for bridges, walkways and landscaping frames,
we turn to Axion Golf.”

“We’re extremely proud to earn this seal of approval from Billy Casper
Golf, one of the industry’s most respected operators,” says James Kerstein,
CEO of Axion. “Knowledgeable professionals have independently assessed
Axion’s structural and environmental qualities, and they unanimously praise
the advantages of our products.”

In addition to bridges traversing waterways, wetlands and other
challenging topographies, Axion materials are used to create walkways and
attractive landscaping for bulk-heading and framing walkways, cart paths, tee
boxes and steps.

Additional advantages of Axion bridges:

— Lower cost per square foot for higher quality material

— Textured surface doesn’t absorb water for less slippage than wood
(safety upgrade)

— Withstand severe weather and flooding

— Customized for extreme traffic and weight (golf carts, maintenance and
construction vehicles)

— Decor of classic and contemporary models (various surface, railing and
bumper colors, textures and shapes) blend with course surroundings

— Minimal color fading and looks new over time

— Impervious to moisture decay, fungus and insect infestation

— Absence of toxins eliminates pollution and preserves wildlife habitat

— Quick, hassle-free installation by contractor or course staff reduces
time, manpower, machinery, golfer disruption and cost

— Virtually maintenance-free – no painting, staining or patching – saves
on repair labor and downtime

Last month, Axion technology entered the golf industry with a decade of
its high-quality, “green” bridges and railroad structures used by the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, Union Pacific, Chicago Transit Authority, Bay Area
Rapid Transit and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

About Axion International

In conjunction with scientists from Rutgers University, Axion developed
patented technologies which convert 100-percent recycled consumer and
industrial materials – waste otherwise destined for landfills – into
structural products used in commercial applications. These super-polymer
composites are extremely strong, flexible in use, long-lasting, low
maintenance and cost-effective. For these reasons, the U.S. Army recently
selected Axion bridges to carry its heavily-armored tanks. Operating from a
“green” base with a “no-trees-cut-down” mentality, Axion management has more
than 100 years in the plastics industry.
