    Futuristic buildings

    Nanotechnology and the Mexico Social Security Administration

    Nanotechnology has its place in green buildings and there is much skepticism when anyone talks about 'liquid insulation' as it sounds both unbelievable and like no technology out there today. Well there is some truth to that, as I have found that there is a patent out there (maybe patents) for a paint on insulation that literally can improve how 'green' your building is. I plan to try this on my own home as soon as I am done researching. Anyway, on to the case study...

    Liquid insulation was painted on the roof of the Mexico Social Security Admin building in Monterrey. This building contains computers housing data and maintains electronic health records and makes up the information interchange between clinics and hospitals. The liquid paint insulation was used to reduce internal temperatures so these critical computer systems would not malfunction due to extreme heat.

    Application of the liquid paint insulation lowered temperatures within the building to an operable level for the systems - bringing the temperature down an average of 27%, and stopped equipment black out due to high temperature.

    I purposely did not mention the product, as I did not want this to sound like a sales pitch. But I will provide a link below to what seems like a third party site to me that I found and introduced me to this research (the reviews link goes to a company's site).

    So here is the link: truegreenbuildingadvisor.com check it out and post your comments and opinions! I would like to hear them.

    If enough people like this I will post more as this is my first post to ireport and I am in love with nanotechnology.
