Excerpt from Masonry Edge Magazine:

"The Village of Libertyville, IL lies about 40 miles north of Chicago. Incorporated in 1837, this former county seat grew until a fire largely destroyed the wood frame buildings in 1895. Subsequently, village leadership mandated that all buildings in the downtown commercial district be built of masonry. One of these was bought by Muller Trading Company and targeted for an efficiency and modernization upgrade by Bleck & Bleck Architects.

A challenge in reusing old masonry buildings is dealing with the energy envelope. Owners and designers love the interior appearance of the old, raw common brick walls. The typical wall is three solid wythes of brick thick, with no cavity for insulation to be injected. Infiltration can be addressed with various coatings, but until recently nothing could be done about thermal transmission.

Nanotechnology is a field that has shown tremendous promise in the area of materials science. The nanoparticles can be suspended in a low VOC medium and applied much like a paint. These coatings cannot be measured in R-values as testing requires 1" thick material. However, other tests have indicated a 30% reduction in thermal transmission."*


Nansulate® Translucent GP was the product used to keep the old world look of the building while giving it a much needed energy envelope upgrade. Visit its product page for ordering information and to learn more about this world changing energy saving technology.

201582_downtown_atlanta_usa.jpgNAPLES, Fla., Feb. 1, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging global leader in nanotechnology based energy saving solutions, today announced that the Company has won the bidding process for a purchase contract by the City of San Jose in California to provide its patented Nansulate® Translucent GP insulation and mold resistance coating in support of San Jose Water Pollution Control Plant /Environmental Services Department requirements. The project bid from the City of San Jose is for 150 gallons.

The Company has also received an order from their Louisiana Distributor, Russo Environmental Materials, for a trial project by the Lafayette Consolidated Government, for Nansulate® Translucent High Heat, Nansulate® Translucent GP, and Nansulate® Translucent PT thermal insulation and asset protection coatings.

"We appreciate the opportunity to provide an energy efficient solution for the City of San Jose, California and the Lafayette Consolidated Government in Louisiana," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "For the City of San Jose project, Nansulate® Translucent GP will be used for thermal insulation on concrete digesters to reduce heat loss, increasing the energy efficiency of the system, while offering a durable solution that will stand up to exterior weathering. Some of the unique benefits that our coatings offer are well-suited to this project, including excellent thermal insulation in a thin film coating, superior adhesion strength, and resistance to moisture and UV, allowing the insulation coatings to be used in many types of environments while maintaining a consistent level of performance. Nansulate® coatings are also low VOC and environmentally friendly. Government contracts represent an important new market sector for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. and we look forward to continuing to expand our successes in US municipalities to many other cities across the country."
