     July 20, 1999  Fremont, California
     
     Elo TouchSystems, Inc., global leader in touch technology and wholly 
     owned subsidiary of Raychem Corporation (NYSE:RYC), announces that it 
     has won the most recent Market Engineering Sales Strategy Award from 
     market-research firm, Frost & Sullivan.  The award is given to Elo for 
     "demonstrated excellence in sales strategy" in the kiosk market. 
     According to Frost & Sullivan, Elo received the award because "the 
     company possesses a well-organized, well-trained sales force that 
     maximizes its market share potential by profitably matching the sales 
     strategy investment with the customer potential."
     
     Frost & Sullivan is a leading customer-focused marketing consulting 
     company.  Its Market Engineering program is a measurement-based system 
     that fully integrates market research, goal setting, strategic 
     marketing, market planning, implementation, and monitoring as integral 
     components of the marketing process.
     
     "The strategy of Elo's Kiosk Partner program has always been to 
     provide its customers with the best possible touch-based kiosk 
     solutions by forming alliances with major kiosk solution providers," 
     says Annemarie Feely, Elo marketing manager.  "The concrete evidence 
     of this program's success is that Elo's touch solutions are most often 
     chosen over our major competitor for use in kiosk applications.  Frost 
     & Sullivan reported that Elo's touch technology was chosen by 46 
     percent of those companies who implement touch-based kiosk solutions 
     in the United States..  So, we are delighted to receive this accolade 
     from Frost & Sullivan whose mission is to help its clients glean the 
     best solutions from the marketplace.  It is verification that we are 
     on the right track."
     
     According to the Frost & Sullivan report, Elo TouchSystems received 
     the award because the company "is able to provide a complete kiosk 
     solution that includes defining of key design considerations, 
     providing engineering design services, assistance in selection and 
     procurement of hardware components, and integration.  Furthermore, 
     through its Elo TouchReady Software Partners, this company is able to
