Nanotechnology-based coatings will be showcased in a green technology show house in New York
(Nanowerk News) Industrial Nanotech, Inc. announced today that the Company’s patented Nansulate® nanotechnology-based coatings will be showcased in a green technology show house currently being renovated in Brooklyn, New York by Eco Brooklyn. The house highlights best green practices for middle class brownstone renovations in the New York metropolitan area utilizing a variety of green technologies.
The building is a brick row house in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, originally built around 1900. The house is being upgraded with cutting-edge green technologies to showcase cost effective ways homeowners can increase the energy efficiency of their homes in an affordable way. Several products by Industrial Nanotech will be incorporated into the home.
Nansulate® HomeProtect Clear Coat will be used on the exposed brick walls to offer insulation without reducing the interior living space and allowing the natural look of the brick to show through. Nansulate® Solar, one of Industrial Nanotech’s newest products, will be utilized for the home's solar thermal water heater system on both the water tank and piping to increase efficiency and on the home’s copper water pipes for moisture and mold resistance insulation. The ecohome will also incorporate a beehive on the roof which will be coated with the Company’s patented Nansulate® Bee Protect Hive Coatings.
“I am excited to use Industrial Nanotech’s products since they are perfectly fitted for greening a Brooklyn brownstone,” stated Gennaro Brooks-Church, President of Eco Brooklyn. “They provide energy savings without a sacrifice of space, two things every Brooklyn brownstone owner is interested in maximizing. Industrial Nanotech’s focus on non-toxic products is also a big plus.”
The show house is open to the public and professionals by appointment 9-4 M-F. Please call Eco Brooklyn to schedule a visit: 347-244-3016.
