Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), a global nanoscience solutions and research leader
and member of the U.S. Greenbuilding Council and the American Solar Energy Society,
announced today that the Company's Nansulate® Translucent GP thermal insulation
and mold resistant coating is being used in two Turkish luxury apartment complexes
to provide increased thermal insulation and energy savings, as well as mold
and mildew resistance. The Company’s exclusive distributor in Turkey,
Kolorgen Ltd, secured both projects. This represents an important expansion
of their business from industrial energy saving projects into sustainable building
“Nansulate® technology offers an effective and affordable way to
increase energy efficiency, air quality and comfort for all types of buildings,”
stated Francesca Crolley V.P. Operations & Marketing, Industrial Nanotech,
Inc. “Dr. Vedat Bilgin of Kolorgen has successfully secured many projects
in a number of industrial applications over the years and is now aggressively
moving into sustainable energy efficient building upgrades for residential and
The first project involves an apartment building in an affluent area of Istanbul,
Turkey. The coating was applied to the exterior of the building to provide thermal
insulation, UV resistance and resistance to mold growth. The coating is low
VOC providing an ecologically friendly exterior protective coating that allows
the look of the building to remain unchanged.
The second apartment project is in a region where the altitude is the highest
in Istanbul. The buildings are facing winds from all sides, all year round.
Because they are open to high winds, the energy consumption is very high. The
complete site consists of several hundred buildings and, in this case, Nansulate®
Translucent GP will be used on the interior of the units.
