New solutions to increase energy efficiency in buildings
Industrial Nanotech, Inc., through the science of nanotechnology, has now provided an affordable retrofit solution to
increase energy efficiency in existing buildings as well as new construction. Patented Nansulate® Translucent Insulation
Coatings increase thermal resistance in a clear coating which is applied like a paint. These award-winning, low VOC
coatings not only insulate and reduce energy use, they are also moisture and mold resistant for a healthier building.
Nansulate® Energy Saving Coatings
New Technology - New Solutions for Sustainability
Nansulate® coatings are a
patented technology by Industrial
Nanotech, Inc. that utilize a
nanomaterial with an extremely low
thermal conductivity. This material
allows the coatings to effectively
inhibit heat transfer in a thin layer.
Nansulate® offers an
advancement to the traditional
concept of thermal insulation,
providing alternative solutions for
sustainability and environmentally
friendly energy efficiency.
A benefit of the translucent
coatings is the increase to the
thermal envelope of a building
without reducing square footage or
changing the look of the surface.
Additional benefits are mold and
moisture resistance, thus improving
overall air quality.
Because Nansulate® does not
rely on thickness as a function of its
insulating ability, compression does
not reduce its effectiveness.
Nansulate® provides a health benefit
by not harboring moisture, dust,
mold, or dirt, which are factors that
reduce traditional insulation’s
effectiveness over time and
decrease air quality.

Nansulate® Energy Saving Coatings
Provide a custom solution with the newest
energy saving technology available
Nansulate® Energy Protect provides a flexible insulation solution for
commercial and public buildings. It can be applied on walls, ceilings, duct work
and other areas of the building envelope, while allowing the visual appeal of the
building to remain intact. Nansulate® Crystal provides a clear insulation
solution for sloped roofs of all types. Unlike traditional forms of insulation,
Nansulate® coatings will not get infiltrated by moisture, mold, dust, or pests and therefore maintains its insulating ability over time.
Building envelope insulation customers include:
✓ Bangkok Thailand International Airport
✓ Louisiana Consolidated Government Animal Shelter
✓ IMSS (Mexico’s Social Security and Health Administration)
✓ National Decorating Service
✓ U.S. Navy - Portsmouth Naval Shipyard
Nansulate® Energy Protect over windows and skylights allows in diffused
light, while insulating windows against heat transfer. Well designed daylighting
allows in natural light that balances overhead electric lighting needs while
curtailing glare. Nansulate® allows 92% visible light transmittance as tested on
pane glass, and provides the opportunity to daylight without sacrificing
building thermal performance. After coating, windows will have a ‘frosted’ look.
Skylight and window insulation customers include:
✓ City of Miami, Florida
✓ Cornwell Quality Tools
✓ Tampa Port Authority
✓ Frost Art Museum at Florida International University
Nansulate® coatings are naturally resistant to mold growth (without use of
moldicides) and therefore will benefit air quality in a building by reducing
potential for mold and mildew. There is also a version of Nansulate® - LDX,
which can be used for encapsulation of dangerous lead-based paint and lead
contamination. Nansulate® LDX is a clear, smooth lead encapsulation coating
which can be used over a variety of surfaces.
Environmental remediation customers include:
✓ US Navy, Pearl Harbor Naval Base
✓ US Navy, Norfolk Naval Shipyard
✓ American Red Cross
✓ Susan B. Anthony Voter’s Block Project
✓ Government of Brunei - Royal Residential Palace
✓ University of Wisconsin-Madison
Patented technology that powers affordable sustainability.

Results from Standard Test Method for Steady-State Thermal
Performance of Building Assemblies - UNI EN ISO 8990:1999:
Thermal transmission through the wall section coated with
Nansulate® was reduced by 34.80%
Thermal resistance (1/U), measured in m2*k*w1, of the 8cm cement
wall section coated with Nansulate® was increased by 28.98%
Description: Two wall samples are tested according to test
standards for a variety of thermal measurements including thermal
transmission, thermal conductance and thermal resistance. Testing
was done by the accredited laboratory Istituto di Richerche E
Collaudi - a certifying body for the Italian Government.

EMSL Analytical, Inc., one of the nation's leading testing laboratories, compared mold growth on wooden surfaces coated with
Nansulate® HomeProtect, Nansulate® Bee Protect, Nansulate® GP, Nansulate® LDX and Nansulate® Top Coat products to
surfaces with no coating. All were exposed to spore-producing bacteria, including Pencillium funiculosum, Aspergillus niger,
Aureobasidium pullulans, Chaetomium globosum, and Trichoderma virens. After four weeks, the Nansulate® coatings exhibited
zero or minimal mold growths, whereas the uncoated surfaces showed extreme to 100 percent mold coverage. The testing was
conducted by EMSL Analytical, Inc., an AIHA accredited laboratory.
Nansulate® Coatings have undergone toxicology testing and have been found safe for use
in homes, schools, food processing and other sensitive environments.
Some nanotechnology products have come under scrutiny due to potential health issues
posed by the use of nano-sized materials – particles smaller than one billionth of a meter.
However, that is where Industrial Nanotech’s particle design approach differs. Instead of
nano-sized particles, Nansulate® is made with larger micro-sized materials which use nanoscale internal architecture and
surface chemistry to allow Nansulate® to have properties that are unique. The coatings are non-toxic, water-based, and low
VOC (100 g/L).

Sustainable Building Case Study
Suvarnabhumi International Airport Bangkok, Thailand
When the new state of the art
international airport in Bangkok,
Thailand was being built, sustainability
was a huge part of the building plan.
The new Terminal Complex, in Nong
Ngu Hao, Samut Prakarn Province,
has a total floor area of 500,000m2
(5,381,955 SF), making it the largest
airport in the world. Contractor H.R.
Robertson supplied 11,530m2
(124,108 SF) of Robertson Wall Panels
in fluorocarbon painted aluminum and
steel, which were used as roof and
soffit claddings for the terminal
building's aerobridges, including the
double-decker aerobridges.
Nansulate® Translucent PT
insulation coating was chosen as an
innovative addition to the airport to
reduce energy consumption and
reduce condensation. It was coated
onto all the Robertson wall panels
to increase building energy
efficiency and sustainability.
Nansulate® PT also offered a low
VOC coating and resistance to mold
growth for improved air quality.
This project was chosen in 2009
by the Journal of Architectural
Coatings as a Top Green Global

the coating cures fully.
Thermal imaging photos were also

reduction of heat transfer provided by
the Nansulate® insulation coating
Industrial Nanotech’s Mexico
Distributor, Omnigenus® Energy, was
assisting a large manufacturing client
with an issue they were having with
heat transferring through a large sheet
metal wall that divides the main
mezzanine from an area that holds six
industrial ovens.
Further application is being completed
on two side walls and the ceiling.
The heat transfer was causing
uncomfortable working conditions.
Nansulate® Translucent PT was
applied at a 3-coat coverage to a 3x3
meter section of the wall to illustrate
the insulation performance.
Even before the coating was fully
cured measurements showed a
reduction of wall surface
temperature from 39.9C (103.8F) to
24.8C (76.6F).
