Business Description

Industry: Chemicals » Specialty Chemicals
Compare:BASFY, DD, SHECY, URALL, APD » details
Nanophase Technologies Corp was incorporated in Illinois on November 25, 1989. The Company is an advanced materials and applications developer and commercial manufacturer with an integrated family of nanomaterial technologies. It produces engineered nanomaterials for use in diverse markets: personal care including sunscreens, architectural coatings, industrial coating ingredients, abrasion-resistant additives, plastics additives, medical diagnostics, a variety of surface finishing technologies applications, and others. The Company has expanded its offerings to include larger but still sub-micron materials. The Company has created an integrated platform of commercial nanomaterial technologies that are patented, patent-pending or proprietary. These technologies are designed to deliver a nanomaterial solution for a targeted market or a specific customer application. Its platform provides flexibility and capability to engineer nanomaterials that meet a customer's performance requirements and delivers its nanomaterial solutions in a readily usable format. Nanomaterials are generally comprised of particles that are less than 100 nanometers in diameter and these nanoparticles have distinct properties owing to its very small size. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter, or about 100,000 times smaller in size than the width of a human hair. Nanomaterials have applications in diverse markets where they are incorporated into a process, such as semiconductor polishing, or a product, such as an industrial coating to prevent degradation from ultra-violet radiation or improve wear resistance. It has manufacturing capacity based in two locations in the Chicago area. Within each of its targeted markets and product applications, Nanophase faces potential competition from advanced materials and chemical companies and suppliers of traditional materials. The manufacture and use of certain of the products that contain the Company's nanocrystalline materials are subject to governmental regulations.
