Pipeline Coating Withstands 1000°F, Company Says

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Comment | More

Industrial Nanotech Inc. says it has developed a nanotechnology-based thermal insulation coating capable of being applied to surfaces of at least 1000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Nansulate Extreme High Heat "was developed as a result of a request by Saudi European Petrochemical Company IBN ZAHR, a customer of the company's exclusive distributor in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Environmental Projects, Ltd, to insulate a 2.1-mile pipeline transporting high pressure steam," Industrial Nanotech said in a statement.

"To date, we have successfully tested the coating on surfaces with temperatures up to 1004 degrees Fahrenheit (540 degrees Celsius)," said company CEO/CTO Stuart Burchill. "We have reason to believe the coating can also be used on surfaces with temperatures up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit and will finish our due diligence in that extraordinarily high-temperature environment over the next few months.

"Regardless of that outcome, the performance qualities of the product are more than satisfactory to meet the challenge presented to us in April of this year by our representatives in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Environmental Projects Ltd. This opens up a whole new market to us which few, if any, other companies can pursue."

IBN ZAHR is an affiliate of the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC). SABIC is one of the world's five largest petrochemicals manufacturers and the largest and most profitable non-oil company in the Middle East.

Industrial Nanotech, based in Naples, Fla., produces nanotechnology-based industrial, residential, agricultural and solar thermal insulation specialty coatings.
