Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Announces Technological Breakthrough - Successfully Creates Quick-Cure Epoxy Based Formulation of Nansulate® Specifically Designed for Navy, Supertankers, and OEM

Published on 2007-05-30. Author : SpecialChem

NAPLES, Fla., -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc., (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, announced that the Company has successfully created an epoxy formulation of Nansulate® specifically designed to meet the stringent requirements of naval vessels and commercial marine industry.

"The introduction of Nansulate EPX is the culmination of over two years of research and development with our team at Princeton Polymer Laboratories, Inc.," states Stuart Burchill, CEO of Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "We discovered in early work with the United States Navy and major shipbuilders including Hyundai, the world's largest builder of supertankers, that they were accustomed to an epoxy based system instead of a latex based system. I cannot overstate the technological challenge that presented to us and the significance of this scientific accomplishment for this valuable and important market sector."

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. will begin production of the new patented product, Nansulate® EPX, within 90 days. The coating will provide the same combination of performance qualities as the current Nansulate® line of coatings - thermal insulation, protection against corrosion, and resistance to mold growth - in a durable, epoxy based system.

"This is an exciting expansion of our current portfolio of successful nanotechnology based coatings," explains Francesca Crolley, VP of Operations and Marketing for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Over the years we have developed a valuable network of contacts in the multi-billion dollar defense industry and industrial manufacturing complex. Nansulate EPX is the product they have been waiting for. In addition to satisfying United States Navy and commercial shipbuilding specifications, the rapid cure time has real value to the many OEM manufacturers who have contacted us over the years. These companies have been searching for a product with the unique combination of performance benefits that our Nansulate product line offers, but need a rapid cure time in order to incorporate it into their manufacturing processes. This new product satisfies that requirement."
