May 9, 2019 – Burlington, North Carolina: BNNano, Inc. announces a distribution agreement with New Metals and Chemicals Corporation, Ltd., of Tokyo, Japan. New Metals and Chemical Corporation is a market leader specializing in handling leading-edge materials, raw materials, and semiconductors.
“New Metals is a key partner for BNNano, and they are helping to transform advanced manufacturing with the introduction of new materials like our Boron Nitride Nanotubes and NanoBarbs™. Japan is a key marketplace for nano-technology, and we are excited to have New Metals as our Japanese distributor,” said Steve Wilcenski, CEO of BNNano, Inc.
BNNano is delivering this novel advanced material at high purity, excellent crystal quality, at a low cost and is ramping quickly to commercial volumes. BNNano’s unique and patent-pending morphologically enhanced product called NanoBarbs™ is providing significantly better dispersion, thermal enhancement, and mechanical properties in composites as compared to standard carbon or boron nitride nanotubes. “We are very pleased with initial customer feedback demonstrating the NanoBarbs™ ease of processing and superior property enhancements,” said Jason Taylor, CTO of BNNano, Inc.
The Boron Nitride NanoBarbs™ are added to polymers, metals, ceramics, glass, and composites to enhance each material with one or more of the NanoBarbs™ super properties (Heat Resistance to 850C, Specific Strength 300X that of steel, Chemical Resistance to acids and bases, Thermal Conductivity > 10X that of aluminum while electrically insulating).
BNNano is currently the only company in the world that can offer grams to kilograms of Boron Nitride Nanotubes and NanoBarbs™ at standard lead times.
