Industrial Nanotech Gets Several Oil/Gas Projects in Asia for its Nansulate® Coatings

Published on 2013-07-09. Author : SpecialChem

NAPLES, Fla., -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (OTC-PINK:INTK) recently announced that the Company's Nansulate® clear thermal insulation and corrosion protection coatings have passed the testing phase by one of Asia's largest oil and gas companies. Nansulate® was applied to a fuel oil storage tank on an offshore oil platform and the performance observed over an extended period of time. Nansulate® achieved excellent results for both thermal insulation and corrosion resistance. It also provided better resistance to the offshore environment than traditional forms of insulation. Subsequently, Nansulate® has been chosen for initial trials on several more projects in the oil and gas and chemical manufacturing markets in Asia. The projects consist of applications over pipes, tanks, valves, pumps, and other chemical and refinery equipment, and encompass six major Asian companies and their subsidiaries.

"Our patented technology is unmatched for providing durable insulation and corrosion prevention that will not degrade in harsh environments, such as marine, offshore, or manufacturing facilities," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. Business Development, Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "When calculating insulation performance, the longevity and consistency of insulation performance in harsh environments is often a value left unstated by traditional forms of insulation. This is because fibrous insulations degrade rather quickly in environments where they are subject to moisture, salt spray, and humidity, and have to be replaced often, in addition to causing corrosion issues. Our next generation technology, which has been saving energy around the world since 2004, combines the performance and adhesion strength of a marine quality coating with powerful thermal performance and corrosion resistance, and maintains its performance level over its lifespan of a decade or more, which is a key reason that several oil and gas and petrochemical companies are seeking our technology to provide better solutions for insulation of pipelines, tanks, and other equipment, not only in Asia, but also in other regions of the world."
