Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, today announced that the Company's patented Nansulate product line of energy saving thermal insulation and corrosion prevention coatings will be featured at the upcoming International Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITM 2009) to be held June 6-10, 2009 in Istanbul, Turkey.

The company's Turkish distributor, Kolorgen Ltd, will be demonstrating the energy saving effectiveness of Nansulate coatings which have been in use on processing machinery in the textile industry for more than 4 years. Kolorgen has successfully completed applications to increase energy savings and reduce costs at many facilities, including Henateks, Erenko, Aloha, Deba and Coats textile, among others.

"Nansulate has proven to be a key energy saving solution for the textile market," explained Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Operations and Marketing, Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Our coatings are used on many critical types of process equipment including heat exchangers, steam boilers, dye machines, dryers, LNG burners and piping of all types to reduce energy use and protect equipment from corrosion.

The energy savings are well documented, including one customer who saved $600,000 per year by using Nansulate to insulate equipment (total Nansulate product cost: $200,000) and another saving $100,000 per year in energy costs (total Nansulate product cost: $40,000). In addition, when used on dye machines, our insulation coating improves the consistency of the dye lot (reproducibility). Textile is a market that has embraced our technology, and we are looking forward to the exhibition to demonstrate our technology, its significant benefits and solid case studies that we've accumulated in this industry. Besides the obvious benefit of cost savings through reduction of energy use, Nansulate is a ‘green' technology and also helps these plants reduce their overall carbon emissions - an added plus for the environment and green initiatives."
