GT Legend Automotive Introduces New Capella PVD Chrome "Physical Vapor Deposition"

FULLERTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/09/09 -- GT Legend Automotive Holdings Inc.

(PINKSHEETS: GTLA) ( is a Nevada Corporation located in Fullerton, CA, which was developed to meet the growing needs of the ever changing automobile aftermarket. GT Legend Automotive is also helping push traditional Chrome out of the wheel market. In years past hexavalent chromium plating has long been a favorite surface finish due to its hardness, corrosion resistance and shiny appearance. However, hexavalent chromium is a known carcinogen and industrial exposure levels are mandated by U.S. law to be reduced by as much as 50 times. It's obvious that an environmentally friendly alternative for this popular finish was needed.

GT Legend Wheels are the first wheels to be finished in "Capella PVD Chrome," a New Technology that combines powder coating with vacuum plating as a durable replacement for traditional chrome. It has been tested under the most stringent automotive industry standards, exceeding the requirements of traditional chrome and many paint & powder requirements. In recent years automakers Lexus and Ford have been releasing new vehicles with the new Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) process. Capella PVD Chrome is also available in a high tech "Black Chrome" finish. All GT Legend Capella PVD Chrome wheels are warranted for 7 years for finish, with a lifetime structural warranty.

PVD coating is a vacuum deposition process that has received increasing use in recent years and is no longer seen as a laboratory process. It has been scaled up to handle large complex part geometries at an affordable cost.

Many companies have realized benefits from converting their product from electroplating to PVD coating. Coatings can be deposited from room temperature to as high as 500 degrees Celsius depending on the substrate and the application. The PVD process provides a more uniform deposit, improved adhesion up to six times greater in some cases, wider choice of materials to be deposited and there are no harmful chemicals to dispose of.

Because PVD coating is more environmentally friendly and chemical disposal costs are minimal, the cost of PVD coating and electroplating is very close on some products. Using new technologies like GT Legend Automotive's performance "Capella PVD Chrome," the consumer could see an additional 5 years of life for chrome wheel finishes even under the harshest of weather conditions of the East Coast.

The focus of GT Legend Automotive is to establish strategic alliances with distributors throughout the nation via an agreement with GT Legend Automotive. GT Legend Automotive is currently establishing recognition and high acclaim within the ever increasing market for performance Hybrids and the new environmentally friendly Capella PVD Chrome process.

GT Legend Automotive will continue to provide exciting new products to the performance car world.
