WHERE WE STARTED
Nanotech Industrial Solutions has acquired NanoMaterials, Ltd (aka APNano) in 2012. This private nanotechnology company has developed, manufactured, and sold unique lubricant nanomaterials for the automotive, mining, marine, aerospace, and other industries since 2002. Today, NIS has an exclusive license to manufacture, commercialize, and sell high-performing nanomaterials based on inorganic multi-layered submicron fullerenes discovered in 1992 by Prof. Reshef Tenne at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
Tungsten disulfide (WS₂) opens up a world of new possibilities for producing extreme performance industrial lubricants and polymer composites. This nanotechnology is instrumental in the successful development of NIS’ award-winning IF-WS₂ family of Extreme Pressure (EP), Anti-Wear (AW), and Anti-Friction (AF) additives. NIS’s international team of scientists continues extensive research and testing for additional IF-WS₂ based applications in the field of lubricants, coatings, and polymer composites for automotive, construction, marine, metalworking, mining, aerodynamics, space, and defense industries.
WHERE WE ARE TODAY
Today, NIS is a highly successful international company. Our research and development facilities include a full tribology laboratory, oil & grease development labs, and analytical support services. Our production sites have bulk reactors for producing nanoparticles and nanotubes in large quantities. Our equipment is capable of blending powders into dry or wet formulations for commercial batches.
Nanotech Industrial Solutions is the only commercial-scale manufacturer of submicron spherical particles of Inorganic Fullerene-like Tungsten Disulfide, IF-WS₂, in the world.
