Industrial Nanotech Announces Technological Breakthrough - Incorporates Fire Suppression Capabilities Into Energy Saving Coatings

NAPLES, FL | Posted on February 20th, 2008

"The addition of fire suppression technology into our new upcoming Nansulate EPX product line is a significant breakthrough," explained Stuart Burchill, CEO/CTO of Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Combining this valuable performance quality with the coating's existing abilities to provide thermal insulation, corrosion protection, increased chemical resistance, a quick cure time, resistance to growth of mold, effectiveness as a lead abatement coating, and the ability to be applied from a fraction of an inch thick to several inches thick creates a product that provides unique and critical value added propositions for many industries around the world including manufacturing, oil and gas, biodiesel, chemical processing, residential and commercial construction, military equipment and facilities, power plants, and ship building and retrofit."

Mr. Burchill continues, "We will include all necessary standard testing data in the product release material, but a simple laboratory test we recently conducted illustrates the effectiveness. We coated a piece of cardboard from a standard cardboard box with an approximately one eighth inch thick coating of Nansulate EPX and applied the flame of a blow torch directly to the coated side for almost ten minutes. The coating never ignited, no smoke was observed, the flame of the blow torch never penetrated the coating, and the cardboard was sufficiently insulated from the heat of the blowtorch flame to avoid any charring or damage. The ramifications of this technological accomplishment are far reaching."

About Nansulate(R)
