Abstract:
Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that the Company's patented Nansulate energy saving protective coatings are now approved under the stringent EU building codes. The approval certification for building construction standards in the European Union was obtained by the Company's distributor for Italy and Spain, Aktarus Group, based in Milan, Italy.

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Energy Saving Coating Receives Official Building Code Approvals for the European Union

NAPLES, FL | Posted on April 9th, 2008

"This is a significant milestone for Industrial Nanotech in the European building insulation market," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Operations and Marketing. "Nansulate has proven its effectiveness and gained market share in the EU in the industrial and ‘do-it-yourself' homeowner markets for the last four years. This certification will open many doors for its use throughout Europe in the burgeoning market of commercial and residential building insulation. Energy conservation through the efficient use of resources has become a priority for governments across Europe. Energy prices continue to soar and governments are putting in place standards and guidelines to compel limitation of energy consumption. Hence, the government, builders, and consumers are demanding more efficient thermal insulation materials for buildings and our Nansulate products offer them that solution."

Nansulate was tested by Istituto De Ricerche E Collaudi M. Massini, of Milan, Italy, a highly regarded institute which has been operating in the field of quality control and certification of products for over 35 years. Their product test and certification activities include food, chemical, ecological, building, electrical, mechanical, metallurgy, health, and textile sectors. Nansulate was tested according to building insulation specifications and was approved according to results from the UNI EN ISO 8990:1999 test method.

Recent EU energy conservation legislation, The European Union Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings, was mandated to be incorporated into national legislation for all Member Countries by January 2006. This legislation requires a decrease in the energy consumption of public, commercial, and private buildings in all Member States and is a vital component of the EU's strategy to meet its Kyoto Protocol commitments.
