NAPLES, Fla., Oct. 10, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc. (Pink Sheets:INTK), an emerging growth company specializing in nanotechnology innovation and product development, today announced that its Nansulate Translucent GP coating has received NSF registration for nonfood compounds by NSF International, The Public Health and Safety Company(tm).
The NSF Nonfood Compounds Registration Program is a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program. The NSF name is internationally respected, and NSF is known for its close working relationships with the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the EPA, FDA, and USDA in the United States and other public health agencies abroad.
Nansulate was approved for NSF registration in the R-2 category, which includes use on structural surfaces or surfaces with the possibility of incidental food contact. The Nansulate coatings are nanotechnology based and provide a single solution for thermal insulation, corrosion protection and mold resistance for both industrial and residential applications.
"The food and beverage industry is strictly regulated and its companies are limited in the products they can use on their facilities and equipment due to public health concerns. The NSF Nonfood Compound Registration creates a tremendous opportunity for our Company to fill an existing need, allowing Nansulate to gain a stronger position in this multi-billion dollar industry," commented Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Operations and Marketing at Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "We currently have a number of companies that have expressed a strong interest in using our coatings but could not until we obtained the required NSF Registration approval. Beverage manufacturing, chain fast food establishments, and poultry processors and distributors are just a few of the industry sectors that have contacted Industrial Nanotech regarding our products. In fact, this is what initially prompted us to go through the rigorous approval process required for the NSF registration of our product."
Crolley also added, "Our projects at companies like Grupo Modelo, makers of Corona Beer, and others in the food and beverage industry show that our coating is a perfect solution for this sector's needs since it is critically important for these companies to safely control their heat and cold processes. Now that we have approval, I believe the food and beverage industry will become one of our fastest growing market sectors in the coming months."
