Industrial Nanotech Incorporates Fire Suppression Capabilities Into Energy Saving Coatings
(Nanowerk News) Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK) announced today that the Company has successfully added effective fire suppression technology to its Nansulate EPX product line of energy saving epoxy coatings.
"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."
Nansulate® is the Company's patented product line of specialty coatings containing a nanotechnology based material and which are well-documented to provide the combined performance qualities of thermal insulation, corrosion prevention, resistance to mold growth, and lead encapsulation in an environmentally safe, water-based, coating formulation. The Nansulate® Product Line includes both industrial and residential coatings.
