Nanotech, a global nanoscience solutions and research leader and member
of the U.S. Greenbuilding Council and the American Solar Energy Society, provided
a follow up to their earlier product announcement for Nansulate® Crystal,
a clear protective roof coating for sloped roofs which provides thermal insulation,
as well as resistance to UV and mold and mildew. The product successfully completed
a 3-year field trial in which it was utilized on a sloped roof over asphalt
shingles. The coating provided thermal insulation and energy savings as well
as protection against tile degradation by UV rays and weathering. Nansulate®
Crystal is a clear, nanotechnology-based coating for use on clay tile roofs,
concrete or slate tile roofs and asphalt or wood shingle roofs to provide energy
savings through reduction of heat transfer through the roof. Details on the
product can be found at www.nansulateroof.com.
"We are very pleased with the results of the field study," stated
Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc.
"Nansulate Crystal, like the rest of the Nansulate product line, offers
revolutionary solutions for energy savings. Now homeowners and businesses with
tile, slate, or shingle roofs finally have a solution other than painting their
roofs white. Our clear coating provides not only thermal insulation and reduced
energy consumption, but has also been shown to reduce the degradation of the
tiles and increase the lifespan of the roofing material. This has been tested
in the field as well as in the lab in a UV aging cabinet and the coating passed
more than 10 years showing no disbondment or discoloration."
Ms. Crolley continues, "The product was just launched last week and sales
have already started. Additionally, we have received a high volume of inquiries
from roofing and painting contractors eager to offer this one-of-a-kind technology
to their customers. We look forward to helping stimulate green business for
contractors, while they help their customers save money and reduce energy costs
with this exciting new product."
Industrial Nanotech, Inc. plans to launch a Nansulate® Crystal Preferred
Contractor Program online by August 31st and is currently accepting requests
