Nanofilm To Be Featured On Alexander Haig's 21st Century Business Series
(Nanowerk News) Multi-Media Productions (USA), Inc. announces that Nanofilm will be featured on "21st Century Business", hosted by General Alexander Haig.
Nanotechnology has taken manufacturing of products, for both business and the individual consumer, to the next level of production and research for the Global Marketplace, providing added performance characteristics through nanotechnology.
"Nanofilm is `nano-izing' familiar products, using nanotechnology to significantly improve performance. Quite frankly, if you haven't thought of a way to improve every product by nano-izing it, you simply haven't looked very hard," added Dr. Scott Rickert, President and CEO.
Nanofilm's coatings can be applied to plastics, glass, metal, textiles, concrete, wood and paper. The technology has application in precision optics, automotive and architectural windows, electronic displays, bake ware, packaging and products of all kinds.
Nanofilm's history can be traced to the earliest pioneering of nanotechnology. In the early 1980s, Nanofilm co-founder, Dr. Scott Rickert, was already researching self-assembling thin films as part of his work as a professor at Case Western Reserve University. The company began as a spin-off of that research and was co-founded by Dr. Rickert and Don McClusky in 1985. The company's initial expertise enabled the manipulation of coatings at the molecular level to enhance the durability, clarity, ease of use and performance of transparent materials. With an in-house team of nanotechnology specialists, the company continues to leverage its rich technological strengths and core competencies to capture growth opportunities in nanotechnology applications. Nanofilm has a full slate of development projects, including a number undertaken with and for partner companies in the U.S. and around the world.
