PPG is actively involved in nanotechnology, from Research & Development to the commercialization of several products that either contain nanoparticles within a polymeric matrix structure or are formed as nanostructured films on a substrate by physical or chemical vapor deposition processes.
Developed NanoClusters™, a nanosize powder that combines with nutritional supplements. When consumed, it reduces the surface tension of foods and supplements to increase wetness and absorption of nutrients. Also manufactures a range of nanoceutical nutritional and skincare supplements.
Reade Advanced Materials is a global distributor and value add toll chemical processor / packager of higher technology specialty chemical solids (metal, non-metallic minerals, ceramic, composite, conductive, magnetic, nanomaterial, powder, fibers, abrasives, sheet, rod, additives, fillers & reinforcements) with 3 customer care facilities in The Americas.
SEI is a global leader in the fields of release and anti-stick, anti-abrasion, antimicrobial and corrosion preventative coating and additive technologies. SEI's Mold, Graffiti, Corrosion and Coatings lines employee nanoparticulates that provide leading-edge performance characteristics.
Nanoscale additives for reinforced plastics in the automotive industry, of flexible and rigid packaging such as films, bottles, trays, and blister packs, and also of electronics plastics such as wire and cable coatings.
Using lapping, optical polishing, single point diamond machining, low stress grinding and honing, Surface Finishes provides Angstrom level tolerances on prototype or production components such as: mirrors for optical imaging and scanning, air bearings, optical disc molds, large area reference surfaces and custom gauging.
Tesla NanoCoatings Inc. is a protective coating (paint) formulating company. Tesla manufactures Teslan Carbon NanoCoating in a 2-coat system that replaces a traditional 3-coat system used extensively for corrosion protection of steel. Tesla's coating uses carbon nanotubes which self- assemble into rope structures, making them highly conductive, tough and flexible.
A materials science-based technology development and manufacturing company whose Capacitance Products Division is developing advanced capacitance materials such as nano-size ceramic dielectric powders.
Transfer Devices has identified a water-dissolvable, biodegradable polymer material formulation with unique chemical and physical properties that has enabling features for a range of nanofabrication applications including high resolution printing.
TriboTEX offers a clean alternative to currently available lubricating blends that improves mechanical output by utilizing a self-assembling, nano-structured coating to simulatneously reverse wear while enhancing lubrication.
