Industrial Nanotech Receives Preliminary Results from Study by Borealis Energy Services

Published on October 5, 2009 at 8:46 AM

Industrial Nanotech, 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, today announced the company's Alaskan distributor, Nanotech Energy Solutions, Inc., has received preliminary results from a study by Fairbanks based Borealis Energy Services on the performance of Nansulate® on steam pipes at surface temperatures of 303 deg F for both surface temperature reduction and reduction of heat loss. Preliminary results showed a 67 deg F temperature difference after applying the Company's patented Nansulate® High Heat insulation and corrosion prevention coating on the pipes at the standard application of 3 coats, which equates to a final dry film thickness for the application of approximately 6/1000th of an inch. Borealis Energy, who has been researching the product since July, will be forwarding a final report on their results within 30 days.

“We received the preliminary results from Borealis Energy services owner, Jonathan Hall,” stated Steve Mroz, President of Nanotech Energy Solutions, Inc. “We were more than pleased with the preliminary report. Borealis has been researching the product since July. Their preliminary results state that the Nansulate will not only reduce energy costs and eliminate corrosion for their customers, but worker safety will also be improved. Multiple contracts, which were pending until the final results from Borealis were determined, are now moving forward. A detailed report on their conclusions will be delivered within 30 days.”
