CHEYENNE, Wyo., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- While the world's biggest
corporations work to be first to market with end-user nanotechnology
applications, a young company based in Wyoming has quietly beaten them to it.
But make no mistake: Industrial NanoTech, Inc.
(INI, www.industrial-nanotech.com), an international firm owned by two
American entrepreneurs with a passion for science and industry, is not
challenging the crowded nanotechnology fields of optics, microchips, or
biomedical engineering. Instead, INI's premier product is patent-pending
Nansulate(TM), an industrial-grade liquid applied insulation containing a
material documented to have significantly higher R-Values and lower thermal
conductivity than any other insulation material, according to recent studies
by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and the
University of Florida.
Nanotechnology -- the manipulation of cell and atomic structure in
materials no larger than a billionth of a meter in size -- has been described
by Frank O'Brien-Bernini, Vice President of Owens Corning Science & Technology
Center, as ". . . so revolutionary, it's being compared to the discovery of
fire, the Industrial Revolution, and the invention of the Internet."
Even so, many industries are still a decade or more away from using
nanotechnology to create products. But for INI, nanotechnology is no longer a
speck on the horizon. "Nanotechnology is already here," said Stuart Burchill,
CEO of INI. "Many companies are developing important materials for use in a
process, but they face the barrier of needing to convince the end product
manufacturer to try them. INI is unique because we identify an existing need,
fund the research, participate in developing the technologies, produce the end
product, and take it to the marketplace. We don't produce a speculative, `I
wonder what it's good for' product. We make things that solve everyday
problems, something where anyone can open up a can and use it."
Thanks to INI's strong relationships with some of the world's top labs,
that something is Nansulate, containing 70% of INI's proprietary
Hydro-NM-Oxide in an environmentally friendly, water-based coating. Developed
with a strong focus on energy conservation, Nansulate does a few things
traditional insulation can't: It's tough and weather resistant; it protects
against corrosion, condensation and rust; it leaves no places for bugs and
rodents to nest, and it adheres to most surfaces, including wood, concrete,
PVC, metal and glass.
"Nansulate was designed specifically for the do-it-yourselfer at home, in
factories, or on RVs, boats, or trucks," explained Laurie Scherock, MBA,
president of Industrial NanoTech, Inc. "Nansulate isn't glamorous. It's a
very functional low-tech application for a very high-tech material.
Everyone's competing in the high-tech arena, but we prefer working with
homeowners and factories and manufacturers. It's INI's mission to learn what
people need and come up with a solution. If a company has a problem that
requires something different or innovative, it may well be coming down our
