Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Announces Use of Company’s Patented Nansulate® Clear Thermal Insulation and Protective Coating On Metal Handrails To Prevent Contact Burn Injury Caused by Sun Heated Metal Surfaces

Naples, FL | Posted on July 8th, 2010

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanoscience energy saving solutions, announced today that the Company's patented nanotechnology based Nansulate® thermal insulation and protective coating is being used by a Florida County to coat the metal handrails at municipal facilities to protect its citizens from contact burn injury caused by touching these metal surfaces which have been exposed to the intense summer sun.

"The customer has indicated that this initial application on the aluminum handrails at municipal buildings is likely to be expanded to include playground and park equipment," states Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "We anticipate this type of application expanding rapidly throughout US and abroad. A safety alert was issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regarding hot metal playground equipment in June 2009. The advisory states that playground equipment can reach 166 degrees in hot weather due to heat and sun exposure, high enough to cause serious contact burn injuries in a matter of seconds. There are many reported cases of metal surfaces in public facilities, including playgrounds and parks, reaching temperatures of 138 degrees Fahrenheit. Playground safety experts report that children can get burned within a few minutes on anything over 120 degrees and in a within a few seconds at temperatures of 140 degrees Fahrenheit or higher."
