Hybrid Exercises Option for Safe Sealants and Adhesives: Receives Exclusive Perpetual World-Wide License

San Francisco, CA | Posted on December 6th, 2011

"The addition of sealants and adhesives to our pipeline of products significantly increases our potential offering to clients and allows us to access another significant market for environmentally safe polyurethane based products," said Joseph Kristul, Chief Executive Officer. "We have received a lot of interest from large global companies in the recent past and are presently working with one of the largest sealants and adhesives companies in the world on a potential joint venture to further develop and then market our adhesives product line."

The global addressable market for the company's polyurethane based sealants and adhesives technology was more than $5 billion in the past year with Adhesives commanding more than an 80% market share.

About Hybrid Coating Technologies Inc.
Hybrid Coating Technologies (HCT) is a San Francisco-based innovator focused on improving the quality and safety of coatings and paint for industrial and commercial customers around the world. We are the exclusive licensee of Green Polyurethane™ coatings and paint – the world's first-ever patent protected polyurethane-based coatings and paint products which eliminate toxic isocyanates from the entire production process (licensed by Nanotech Industries, Inc.).

The Problem of Conventional Coatings/Paint and Isocyanates

Conventional polyurethane (PU) paint and coatings have many disadvantages: they are porous, permeable and maintain poor hydrolytic stability. This makes the material highly vulnerable to environmental degradation and ultimately leads to their chemical decomposition, especially when in contact with water. Even worse, the manufacture of conventional polyurethanes involves highly toxic components such as isocyanates, which can cause irritation of skin and mucous membranes, chest tightness, difficult breathing, upset stomach, fevers and prolonged exposure has been known to cause severe asthma and even death. Furthermore, strict and costly health & safety measures have to be implemented in the manufacture and application of conventional polyurethane due to the toxicity of isocyanates. This is why regulatory bodies around the world are now looking toward phasing out the use of isocyanates.

The Green Polyurethane™ Solution

Green Polyurethane™ (also referred to as "HNIPU" - hybrid non-isocyanate polyurethane) is a "hybrid" material, which combines the high chemical resistance properties of epoxy and advanced durability and wear resistance properties of polyurethane, making it the perfect application for high traffic and corrosive surface areas. As a hybrid material with superior properties, Green Polyurethane ™ can be applied in one coating in most cases, providing a welcome cost-saving substitute to currently used multi-layered flooring applications. Green Polyurethane™ also provides the first sound solution to the environmental and health hazards associated with isocyanates in polyurethane. Its safety features allow it to be applied without the interruption of business due to public exposure, creating an additional 30-60% savings on application costs for customers.
