Nano Labs Conducts Testing on Intumescent Fire Resistant Coating

Published on September 19, 2013 at 5:51 AM

Nano Labs Corp. is pleased to report the Company has been testing its intumescent, fire resistant coating with Atencio and Atencio, a certified maintenance supplier for Pemex, the Mexican state-owned petroleum company.

Nano Lab's intumescent paint was tested at Pemex's Francisco I. Madero Refinery. Testing of the product followed Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 1709 test protocols for the "Rapid Rise Fire Tests of Protection Materials for Structural Steel".

The test method covered full-scale fire exposure, intended to evaluate the thermal resistance of protective material applied to structural members and the ability of the protective material to withstand fire exposure at Pemex refineries and facilities.

Nano Labs' submitted the product for testing through Atencio and Atencio, and tests were conducted in partnership and under the supervision of Pemex engineers.

The tests involved the preparation of three carbon steel plates, coated with varying thickness of Nano Labs' fire resistant paint. The plates were then heated with a LP gas torch and readings taken on both the hot and cold faces.

"Our coatings performed perfectly," states Dr. Castano, Chief Innovations Officer of Nano Labs. "Among other finds, the tests illustrated that a constant direct flame applied for 45 minutes with a temperature of 800 degrees Celsius showed that once removed - in 2 seconds - the plates were cold to the touch. We are looking forward to working with our partner, Atencio and Atencio, in the delivery of the commercial rollout for Pemex."

This press release is in follow up to "Nano Labs Secures First Contract for Purchase of Intumescent Fire Resistant Coating" announced September 17, 2013 wherein the announced it had received an order for twenty-seven thousand (27,000) liters of the Company's proprietary nano coatings.

Commercial parties interested in learning more or receiving samples of the nano coating are invited to contact Mr. Bernardo Camacho Chavarria, President of Nano Labs, at bernardo@nanolabs.us or by phone at 1 (888) 806-2315.
