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, 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 applications.
“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 office complexes.”
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.
