Industrial Nanotech Inc., (OTC: INTK - News), an emerging nanotechnology-based solutions provider, announces that the Company's South Korean distributor, Nansulate Asia, is in discussions with INI Steel, the second largest steel manufacturer in South Korea, regarding OEM applications for Nansulate Translucent.

Additionally, Industrial Nanotech, through Nansulate Asia, has received steel samples from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for independent testing of the coating's ability to meet specific requirements. Demonstrations of Nansulate are set to begin this week at Princeton Polymer Laboratories, Inc., under the supervision of Peter Wachtel, PhD.

Samsung Heavy Industries, a key member of Korea's SAMSUNG Group, is a highly integrated organization which delivers a broad range of services in the shipbuilding industry. SHI is the No. 1 shipbuilder in the world in terms of volume of orders.

"By employing key engineers that have over a decade of experience working for one of these companies, we are positioned to demonstrate the potential of this product to the supertanker industry. Due to the superior performance characteristics of this product, we are also approaching the steel manufacturers such as INI Steel directly as part of our aggressive strategy to capture a significant share of this multi-billion dollar market segment."
