Industrial Nanotech to Collaborate with Big Three Auto Maker

Published on 2006-03-14. Author : SpecialChem

NAPLES, Fla. -- Industrial Nanotech (Other OTC:INTK.PK - News) announced that the Company is working with one of North America's Big Three automakers based in Detroit, Michigan regarding the incorporation of its patent pendng Nansulate(tm) coatings as an energy saving measure in various production models.

Industrial Nanotech's CEO, Stuart Burchill was invited to meet with representatives of the engineering team and racing division of this company to discuss the unique performance qualities of Nansulate coatings and their potential uses in production vehicles. Nansulate's current use in automobile racing captured the attention of the auto maker's climate control division as well as their engineers due to the coatings' unique ability to create thermal barriers for specialized areas on racecars around the world, including a major NASCAR racing team.

Mr. Burchill commented, "After a series of meetings and discussions, it has been determined that there are multiple areas on current production vehicles, particularly three-quarter ton and one-ton work vans and trucks, that can greatly benefit from our nanocomposite-based coatings. The next step is for us to apply Nansulate(tm) to specific areas of a test vehicle that they will be providing. This will be used to confirm initial results regarding the product's thermal insulation and anti-corrosion qualities in relation to automobile performance and fuel efficiency. While we are pleased that our coatings have been successful and performed well for the racing industry, we recognize the significant opportunity that incorporating our coatings into current production vehicles presents for Industrial Nanotech."

"Industrial Nanotech's line of industrial coatings has been the subject of review and analysis by a number of industries for OEM applications," stated Francesca Crolley, VP of Operations and Marketing. "Auto manufacturing is just one that we have been working with since 2005. Our products have been featured in a growing number of publications, including 'Oil & Gas Product News, May/June 2005', 'Industrial Equipment News, August, 2005', and 'Job Shop Technology, January 2006'. The ability of our products to prevent corrosion and provide thermal insulation simultaneously in an easy-to-apply, durable coating has several advantages. Additionally, the recently announced results of our coatings providing protection against mold growth has also prompted many industries to consider our product as a preventative measure against litigation from industrial workplace health issues," continued Ms. Crolley.

About Nansulate(tm)

Introduced in 2005, Nansulate is a water-soluble tinted primer or translucent coating containing a nano-science based material. Nansulate's formulation was developed by Mr. Burchill who has filed patents both nationally and internationally and licensed exclusively the rights to Industrial Nanotech, Inc. The coating's ability to resist mold, prevent corrosion and provide thermal insulation is well-documented. The Company and its licensed distributors distribute Nansulate products worldwide.
