Industrial Nanotech Rolls Out Clear Roof Coating

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. Nansulate Crystal

Industrial Nanotech, Inc. has launched the first of three patented nanotechnology-based roof coatings for the commercial, industrial and residential roofing markets.

Nansulate Crystal is a clear protective roof coating for sloped roofs that provides thermal insulation, as well as resistance to UV and mold and mildew, while protecting and preserving the beauty of the roof.

The coating is used on clay or concrete tile, slate or wood shingle roofs, and asphalt shingle roofs to provide energy savings through reduction of heat transfer through the roof. Details can be found at www.nansulateroof.com.

“Traditional energy-efficient roof coatings—an important part of the world’s efforts to reduce energy consumption and decrease global warming—are white and work by reflecting away the sun’s heat,” says Francesca Crolley, VP of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech.

While noting recent remarks by U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu about the energy benefits of painting roofs white, Crolley added: “[W]e also understand that, realistically, people and companies who have spent the extra money for the aesthetic benefits of beautiful clay, slate or concrete tile roofs or decorative asphalt or wood shingle roofs are not going to paint them white. This market accounts for a very substantial amount of the total roof surface area, both in the US and worldwide.”

Nansulate Crystal is clear and can be easily applied over colored tile, barrel tile, clay tile, slate, and shingle roofs, reducing heat transfer and heat loss through the roof without changing its appearance, Crolley said.

The coating also reduces the growth of mold, mildew and algae, she added.

Industrial Nanotech anticipates working closely with roofing contractors, painting contractors, roof material distributors, and roofing material manufacturers to make this product easily accessible to consumers, the company said.
