DETROIT, Aug. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Labs Corp. ("Nano Labs" or the "Company") (OTCBB:CTLE) is pleased to announce the development of the next generation of nano water proof coatings. The Company will be filing a patent application on this innovative technology. This marks another important milestone for the U.S.-based nanotechnology development company and for the execution of its coatings business strategy.
The Company believes that they have developed a path through which they may partner with industry to commercialize an innovative nano water proof hydrophobic and fire resistant product. As an important competitive advantage, the coating provides also water proof and fire protection at temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius.
Home fires damage about 400,000 homes, and cause just under 7 billion US dollars in direct damage annually in the United States, this product should be in every household in America.
The nano water proof and fire proof coating may be directly applied to virtually any surface, from wood to metal, and fabric often without the need to remove existing coatings. The product is a direct competitor to the water repellent Rust-Oleum Never Wet but with added fire resistant benefits.
The comparison between the products is listed below:
|Rust-Oleum Never Wet||Water Proof and Fire resistant nanocoating|
|Solvent based and toxic||100% water based, with no solvent|
|2 step, requires a base and then the final layer||One step: spray and dry|
|Due to solvents, substrate could eventually be damaged||No damage to substrate|
|Change of color or film on substrate||No discoloring|
|No fire retardant||Fire retardant|
|Retail Price: $25.99 per 510 grams||Retail price: $9.99 per liter|
"By manipulating matter at a very small scale, we are able to create a new chemical mixture in which the strengths of this mixture are exponentially greater than the sum of the parts," stated Dr. Castano, Chief Research and Innovations Officer, Nano Labs. "The process for the development of this Hydrophobic coating makes it commercially and economically viable for use across many household applications. We are looking forward to testing with a variety of industry partners, distributors and offer all retail channels a significantly more effective, more affordable, more environmentally friendly, and easier to use application than what is conventionally available by Rust-Oleum Never Wet. There is immense potential for this coating application in industrial and residential settings worldwide."
Mr. Bernardo Camacho, President of Nano Labs, stated, "The nano Liquid Repelling product can serve as a treatment preventing water, mud, ice from sticking to multiple surfaces such as Metal, Concrete, Wood, fabric, glass, vinyl, and plastic. Home fires damage about 400,000 homes, and cause just under 7 billion US dollars in direct damage annually in the United States, this product should be in every household in America. As a result, this material has the potential to reduce the risk of fire used as a spray in camp grounds on tents or in home applications on Christmas trees, curtains and furniture."
