(Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that the Company's exclusive African distributor, Megaros Industrial Products, has expanded its presence on the African Continent by signing an agreement with Copper Sunset Trading 440 Pty Ltd of Johannesburg to represent the Company's patented Nansulate® energy saving coatings in the country of South Africa.

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Announces Expansion into South Africa - Expects Electricity Crisis to Create Opportunities for Nansulate®

NAPLES, FL | Posted on February 14th, 2008

"The appointment of Copper Sunset Trading to represent Nansulate in South Africa will open new markets in this region where energy conservation has become a top priority," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. Operations & Marketing. "South Africa recently announced rationing of electricity in order to ease power outages that have negatively affected both businesses and neighborhoods, so this is an area where Nansulate coatings can make an immediate impact by reducing energy consumption. We are pleased to have this opportunity to assist in the region's economic growth and establishment of an environmentally safe infrastructure and improved living environment."

The rationing of electricity has affected many large companies in the regions. In January 2008, South Africa's major gold mining companies suspended operations over safety concerns after the state-owned power company, Eskom, advised it could not guarantee electrical power at the mines. The world's largest platinum mine also suspended operations. In addition, Africa's largest steel producer ArcelorMittal South Africa announced that power interruption could cause production disruptions and possible rationings. Eskom has also cut exports of electricity to neighboring countries, such as Botswana and Namibia. The government plans to invest some $40 billion in the construction of new power plants over the next five years.
