1 NANSULATE NANOTECHNOLOGY BASED SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE HEAT LOSS THROUGH WINDOWS

2 NANSULATE ENERGY PROTECT INSULATION AND PROTECTIVE COATING The science of nanotechnology is behind the innovation of Nansulate Energy Protect. A translucent coating that is used as a liquid insulation for energy savings over building envelope surfaces, including windows and skylights. The coating will give glass a slightly frosted look for security, while allowing through approximately 92% of the visible light. Benefits include: Reduces heat loss through windows for energy savings Reduces heat transmission per ISO testing by 34.8%* Cost effective at only 57 cents US per S.F. Easy spray application, can be sprayed over frames and windows Lowers energy costs for heating and cooling Reduces condensation Perfect for daylighting UV and moisture resistant Chosen by BUILDINGS Magazine as a 2012 Top Money Saving Product ENERGY SAVINGS Nansulate coatings have been tested to the ISO standard for thermal performance of building assemblies over 8cm cement wall sections, and shown to decrease heat transmission by 34.8%*. LIGHT TRANSMISSION As tested on pane glass, Nansulate Energy Protect allows transmission of approximately 92% of visible light, while also frosting windows for security and reducing glare. SURFACE PROTECTION Additional protective benefits include UV resistance, moisture resistance, condensation reduction, and mold/fungi resistance.

3 COST COMPARISON: Many factories and commercial buildings have single pane windows that represent huge gaps in their building s thermal envelope. You can now affordably control heat loss through windows with a payback that s significantly less than replacement. Cost per S.F. Additional cost/waste Installation Process LOW E-WINDOW INSTALLATION Average $40+ per S.F. installed Reference figure from BUILDINGS magazine, article dated 2/24/2012 Waste incurred from old windows - added disposal cost Installation process includes removal of old windows and replacement with new - Typically done by professional installers. NANSULATE ENERGY PROTECT COATING Average $1.28 per S.F. Installed Reference figure, 0.53 per S.F. for material, estimating 0.75 per S.F. for labor. No waste incurred, as existing windows remain in place and are retrofit with the insulation coating Installation process includes use of typical paint spray equipment to spray the coating at 4 mils per coat over the windows and frames. The total coverage is 3-coats. Can be done by maintenance crews in house, or a painting contractor. Estimated cost to upgrade windows in 3-story factory with 51,422 S.F. of windows area. Estimated Annual Energy Costs for Heating/Cooling (Figures for St. Louis, Missouri, Ameren, LNG cost of $12.067/therm, and electricity cost between $2.97-$4.10 per kw, and typical use reference is from PPG report referencing energy use of building with 51,422 S.F. windows as $344,266. Estimating 50% of total energy use for heating/cooling portion. ) Estimated Annual Savings Using low end 20% reduction for Nansulate (typical savings is 20%-40%. and using 30% for Low E Windows - MFG reflects savings of 30%-40%) $2,056,880 $65, $172,113 $172,113 $51, $34, Payback 39.8 years 1.9 years Even if we skew the expected energy savings to allow less than typical for Nansulate, the payback difference is astounding, and makes it clear which product is the best value to reduce heat transfer costs from windows.

4 HOW IT WORKS This patented technology incorporates a nanomaterial that reduces direct heat conduction, allowing the coating to reduce both heating costs in the winter and cooling costs in the summer. Heat always transfers to cold, so no matter what your climate or season, Nansulate Thermal Barrier Coatings make for a comfortable environment and lower heating and cooling costs for buildings and facilities. Winter Uncoated Glass Summer Nansulate Coated Glass Only a 3-coat coverage

5 Reference Window/Skylight Projects: FROST ART MUSEUM - FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY Art conservation researchers over the past 40 years have studied the sensitivity of artworks to light. In Weymouth s designs, a crucial element is using materials and coatings that block out both ultraviolet rays and heat Article in Florida Trend Magazine, referring to the HOK project with Nansulate at the Frost Art Museum CORNWELL QUALITY TOOLS "Sirs, We at Cornwell Tools have been very pleased with the results of using the Nansulate material. It's hard to quantify how much has been saved...however I believe that a considerable savings has been realized. The cost of the (Nansulate) materials was probably saved in the first cold month." -Daniel Goodell Senior Tool Designer Cornwell Quality Tools TAMPA PORT AUTHORITY Application on skylights for reduction of energy costs for cooling. Nansulate Energy Protect can be used for all building envelope surfaces, including windows/skylights, interior or exterior walls, ceilings, and ductwork. VERNON BANK Application on skylights to reduce dripping from condensation, heat transfer, and glare. Application Basics: Apply the first coat at 4 mils wet film thickness, allow to dry for 24 hours. Apply the second coat at 4 mils wet film thickness, allow to dry to touch (approximately 1-2 hours) before applying the third and final coat. Do not let the application get rained on (if outside) for 72 hours or go below freezing for 30-days. Application with paint sprayer is recommended for most even coverage without brush or roller lines. The coating can be applied on either side of the window (indoor or outdoor).
