The company invents, designs, and manufactures advanced nanoscale silver additives that add permanent, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly antimicrobial and performance-enhancing characteristics to consumer, commercial, and industrial products. The company markets its patent-protected and Oeko-Tex® approved antimicrobial solution under the SmartSilver® brand that has worldwide recognition.
Founded on commercial agreements with Rice University and the University of Houston, NanoRidge has exclusive licenses for the use of technologies focused on applications of carbon nanotubes and other nanoparticles for production and sales of advanced nanomaterials.
A nanomaterials company developing proprietary technologies and processes to provide novel properties for a wide range of applications that include industrial polymers, plastics, composites and additives.
The inspiration for NBD came from the Namib Desert Beetle, a beetle that has the ability to harvest water every morning in the Namibian desert. Based on years of research coming from elite university laboratories, NBD focuses on thin film coatings that enhance heat transfer through condensation, de-misting and anti-scaling characteristics.
nCoat exploits nano-level processes and nano-formulated materials to develop coatings that produce revolutionary performance in heat management, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, friction reduction, superior bond strength and improved appearance.
