Industrial Nanotech Awarded Project for Skylight Insulation Using Nansulate Coatings

Published on 2012-08-21. Author : SpecialChem

NAPLES, Fla. -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology based energy saving solutions, announced that the Company's patented Nansulate(R) translucent thermal insulation and protective coating was specified into a recently awarded renovation project by the City of Miami. The nanotechnology based coating, which insulates while allowing through visible light and providing UV resistance, will be used for skylight insulation in the Caribbean Marketplace Renovation Project being undertaken by the City of Miami.

"We look forward to having our technology be a part of the renovation of an important piece of South Florida history," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Our coating technology is very well suited for use as skylight insulation because it provides an effective way to reduce heat transfer through glass or plexiglass, while also allowing transmission of approximately 92% of visible light, as tested on pane glass, and providing important UV resistance. Our coatings have been used in skylight applications at the Tampa Port Authority, The Vernon Bank in Louisiana, and at the Frost Art Museum at Florida International University, just to name a few. Skylights are often used in architecture to allow in natural daylight, which reduces the need for interior lighting. Unfortunately, without the protective advantage that Nansulate(R) offers, they can act as a problem area for heat loss and gain, therefore increasing cooling and heating costs. Another issue is glare and harmful UV rays streaming through the glass, which are all problems that our coating technology solves. Nansulate(R) translucent coatings are easy to apply, highly resistant to UV rays, and diffuse light... causing less glare. This combination of protective benefits along with energy savings make our technology a perfect option for insulation of skylights."

The return of the Caribbean Marketplace marks renewed efforts to boost tourism for Miami while preserving Little Haiti's history. The only building in South Florida to win the American Institute of Architects' national honor award, the structure was designed by Haitian-American Charles Harrison Pawley and inspired by the famed Iron Market in Port-au-Prince.
