Industrial Nanotech Launches New Nanocoating to Cool and Protect Decks
(Nanowerk News) Industrial Nanotech, Inc. announced today that the Company has launched a new product, Nansulate® Deck, for protection and cooling of wooden decks and railings. This clear protective coating helps to cool deck surface temperatures as well as protects the wood from moisture, UV and weathering, while also being resistant to mold and algae growth.
“This new product is the result of customer demand,” stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. “Customers of our home and roof insulation products were asking us for a coating that could help make their decks cooler in the summer, while also protecting them from mold and algae growth and weathering. Our customers are also very sustainable, so they appreciate the fact that our products do not contain biocides and are environmentally friendly, and will make their decks and railings last longer. After working with our R&D team, we developed a version of our industrial technology, which is used in all types of factory environment and harsh exposure applications, that could fill this need and provide solutions that are not currently available in the deck coating marketplace. Part of what we do is use sustainable nanotechnology to provide solutions to issues that most companies can’t solve. We’ve provided unique solutions for corrosion under insulation, difficult to insulate areas, and lead abatement, to name a few, and continue to enjoy the challenges that companies and customers bring to us daily.”
Industrial Nanotech’s patented line of award winning nanotechnology based insulation and protective coatings have been used in industry and by consumers since 2004. These sustainable products provide solutions to energy savings, surface protection, and environmental remediation in an environmentally friendly, clear liquid coating line.
