Industrial Nanotech Retains Certified NACE Coating Inspector; Nansulate Translucent Demonstrates High Performance Characteristics under Extreme Conditions
In a recent test, one side of a steel sample was treated with Nansulate(TM) Translucent and submersed in the ocean for 72 hours. After three days of exposure to the salt water, the portion of the steel that was treated with Nansulate showed no signs of corrosion. "The resistance of the Nansulate Translucent product to complete immersion in salt water proves that the product can perform extremely well in a very aggressive environment," stated Jeff Croll, Certified NACE Coating Inspector. The sample is currently being sent to Princeton Polymer Laboratories for independent analysis.

Nansulate(TM) Translucent's superior insulation characteristics were also demonstrated in a recent test conducted by Industrial Nanotech. During the demonstration, two identical sample sheets of aluminum, one coated with Nansulate Translucent (average .0034 of an inch dry film thickness) and one left uncoated, were placed side by side on a scientific hot plate. When the temperature of the uncoated sample stabilized at 371.8(degrees)F, the temperature of the sample coated with Nansulate Translucent PT stabilized at 301.3(degrees)F, a 70.5(degrees)F temperature differential compared to the uncoated sample.
"We are very excited to have a NACE Certified Coating Inspector as part of our team. The addition of an internationally recognized corrosion expert who is familiar with the performance qualities of Nansulate(TM) and has the technical skills to analyze a customer's specific problem and provide custom solutions presents tremendous value to our customers worldwide. We are very encouraged by recent test results and looks forward to disclosing ongoing independent evaluations and testing programs," commented Laurie Scherock, President of Industrial Nanotech.
The Nansulate Translucent product line is being positioned as a solution to Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI), a multi-million dollar problem. The translucent characteristic of the coating allows for visual inspection of the substrate without having to remove the coating, making it well suited for use in large industrial markets such as maritime, petroleum refinery and shipbuilding. This coating utilizes nanotechnology to prevent Corrosion Under Insulation, whereas many of the insulations currently in use actually cause the problem of CUI.
