Brush-on insulation reduces energy use

DIY nanotechnology: a modern homemaker’s dream is now a reality.

Industrial Nanotech, Inc., a Florida-based lab, manufactured a liquid, paint-on insulation made by engineering microscopic particles.

It’s called Nansulate, a water-based acrylic that can be sprayed, brushed or rolled onto surfaces. It has no toxins, is not a sealer, is mold and moisture resistant and doesn’t use reflectivity or absorption: it uses low thermal conduction to barricade heat.

You can use it on pipes, walls, attics, skylights, water heaters, dog houses and tanks to reduce your energy bill. The residential version is called HomeProtect Clear Coat.

by: INDUSTRIAL NANOTECH, INC. - Nansulate can be brushed and rolled onto surfaces just like paint.
