Ecology Coatings CEO Addresses NanoBusiness 2007
AKRON, OH | Posted on April 18th, 2007
Ecology Coatings Inc., a leading developer of nano-engineered industrial coatings for cleaner, more efficient manufacturing, today announced that CEO Tom Krotine addressed an audience of nanotechnology and new materials business leaders at the 6th Annual NanoBusiness 2007 Conference held this week in New York City. Mr. Krotine spoke on the near-term applications for Ecology Coatings' products in the green architecture and construction materials markets. Held by the NanoBusiness Alliance, the world's leading nanotechnology trade association, the conference explores a broad range of issues relating to nanotechnology and investing, commercialization, economic development, environmental, health and safety and global opportunities.
"Ecology Coatings has a demonstrated ability to bring proven energy and time saving coatings to a broad range of markets, and I look forward to discussing the opportunities for improved manufacturing across that spectrum of application areas," said Tom Krotine, CEO. "Our presence at leading events like NanoBusiness is a testament to our commitment to making that cleaner, more efficient industrial economy a reality."
Coatings are a necessary final step for many manufactured products, including building and construction materials. While conventional coating technologies are time and energy intensive and often contain polluting solvents, Ecology Coatings provides dramatic process efficiencies for manufacturers while improving environmental and public health. The ultraviolet (UV) curable, 100 percent solids coatings drive 90 percent reductions in time, reduce energy expenditures by up to 80 percent and do not release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) to the ambient environment. The proprietary coatings can also be used to improve durability and sustainability for entirely new applications including paper and plastic-based building materials. Paper coated with Ecology Coatings' nano-engineered technologies serve as a sustainable replacement to conventional weatherproofing technologies while providing unmatched waterproofing and mold resistance properties. When applied to industrial plastics used in building construction, the technology contributes a cleaner manufacturing process and improves the performance and lifetime of the finished products.
