Nano Labs (CTLE) Announces Nano Coating ASTM Technical Specifications for Construction and Engineering Industry

The Company Is Pleased to Report Nano Thermal Insulation Coating (NC2012) ASTM Standards, Properties, and Applications

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwire - Nov 19, 2012) -   Nano Labs Corp. (OTCQB: CTLE) today announced the ASTM International specifications for their nano thermal insulation coating application in the construction and engineering industry. The Company reported on November 13, 2012 the award of the provisional patent for the next-generation nano thermal insulation coating, and the product is currently named "NC2012."

The Company is pleased to release the following technical data, gauging key product standards, and providing an overview of the unique properties of the NC2012 nano coating. 

"Tests have shown that our new NC2012 nano thermal insulation paint coating is more effective, cheaper, easier to apply, and more environmentally friendly than standard coating materials currently in use. We believe our new nano coating could replace many of the industrial paints and coatings used today for thermal insulation in commercial, industrial and domestic structures," said Nano Labs President, Bernardo Camacho, adding that the NC2012 nano coating, which can be easily applied as a spray, shows remarkable heat resistance at up to 2,732 degrees Fahrenheit.

"From thermal conductivity, fireproofing, and density -- to cohesion, solar absorption, and thermal shock -- the new nano coating demonstrates properties signaling very promising benefits to the building construction and engineering industry," states Mr. Camacho. "As well, NC2012 possesses characteristics that are conducive to integrated manufacturing processes, including flexibility, easy adhesion, and economical production costs and inputs. We look forward to inviting tests from all companies, governments, and organizations as we explore global and regional opportunities for commercialization of NC2012, as we grow our business and shareholder value."

Market Scope for Nano Labs' NC2012
In 2014, the global construction & engineering industry is forecast to have a value of $2,758.5 billion, an increase of 23.3% since 2009. Civil Engineering is the largest segment of the global construction and engineering industry, accounting for 51.9% of the industry's total value. The United States accounts for 37.4% of the global construction & engineering industry value.*

The construction and engineering industry is composed of civil engineering companies and large-scale contractors, but excludes companies involved in home-building. The market value is calculated as the revenues of those companies whose primary activity is the construction of non-residential buildings and non-buildings construction (civil engineering). All currency conversions have been calculated using constant average 2009 annual rate.*
