Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanoscience solutions, today announced that the company's patented Nansulate® thermal insulation and asset protection coatings will now be used on all new solar water heater systems manufactured by Asia based First Energy Solution Manufacturing Corporation.
“We have been approached by a number of solar panel and water heater manufacturers for trials with Nansulate® Solar since it was released earlier this year,” stated Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. “We are pleased that First Energy Solution has started using our coatings on all new water heater systems they produce to increase efficiency. Their company first began trials on their solar water heater systems with both Nansulate® Solar and Nansulate® Translucent GP in July of 2009. After successfully completing the trials and confirming the benefits, they ordered product to be used in a large solar water heating system for a new hotel/condo tower to insulate in conjunction with their industrial series of solar heaters. They recently informed us that Nansulate® will be standard on all systems they manufacture from this point forward and they will be providing us with an estimate of their quarterly order amounts.”
The Asian market for solar energy is currently more than ten times that of all of Europe and projected to grown at an annual rate of over 20% - 30%.
