EICMA: New coating helps reduce exhaust-pipe burns


A new safety coating product that aims to reduce surface temperatures of hot exhausts on motorcycles, motorbikes, ATVs, and sport bikes makes its debut at EICMA this week.

Naples, Fla.-based Industrial Nanotech, Inc., is showing its Nansulate Cool Ride line of high-tech insulation, energy-saving, and protective coatings.

The new product is described as an easy-to-apply clear liquid insulation that reduces heat conduction, provides a thermal insulation barrier, and lowers the surface temperature of hot exhaust pipes on motorcycles and other riding equipment. Details are at www.coolridetech.com.

The company points to studies published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine - National Institutes of Health showing that motorcycle exhaust burn injuries are a global issue.

"The statistics for motorcycle exhaust burn injuries among both adults and children show the severity of this avoidable issue," says Francesca Crolley, VP business development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Our technology has been used extensively in industrial and commercial sectors to reduce the temperature of hot pipes and heat process equipment for employee safety, and to reduce hot handrail surface temperatures that heat up in direct sunlight, so it made perfect sense to extend our solutions to the motorcycle, motorbike, and ATV markets for burn prevention. The holiday season is when many of these vehicles are purchased for children as well as adults, so the timing was right to include a companion safety coating as a vital accessory to these bikes as a burn preventative."
