NanoMech To Develop Next- Generation Combat Uniforms


NanoMech announced it has won a contract to develop and evaluate the next generation U.S. Army protective equipment. If the patented nGuard nanotechnology coating can be successfully implemented then the new technology could be used for next generation Army Combat Uniform (ACU).

This multifunctional nanoengineered substance will deliver significant improvements to ACU textiles including quite advanced vector protection to guard (or safeguard) soldiers against vector-borne diseases like malaria, zika, etc. and anti-attractant against other infected arthropod species insects while keeping low toxicity and increased safety for the soldier. Through innovative substance science progress, the new generation battle uniforms will resist a broad range of flash flame and thermal threats while lightning the auxiliary load carried by the soldier, improving wearable comfort, and increasing cloth durability and breathability abilities. In addition to passive fire protection, nGuard® has exceptional antimicrobial activity to enhance resistance of soldiers against infectious bacteria /microbes and inhibiting human odor -causing bacteria to resist distraction, odour, and natural attractant for mosquitoes.

NGuard® is a cost effective protective additive and finish for a broad variety of textile fabricscotton, nylon, polyester, and combinations that are artificial. In particular, nGuard® is highly adaptive for materials and various modern cloths. NanoMech has created an original nano-engineered composite operational delivery system that combines proven metal-mineral complexes that are environment-friendly. This composite delivery vehicle supplies high effectiveness for antimicrobial, vector protection, and fire-resistant functionalities. Various use special chemistries of nGuard® platform are engineered using exceptional convergent construction procedures. NGuard® is a tested and durable product that can endure many wash cycles to continue offering high-performance.

NanoMech Wins Highly Competitive Department of Energy Grant


NanoMech Inc. has been chosen for an award from the Department of Energy to develop a nano-manufactured drop-in lubricant technology to drastically reduce friction in engine components, in order to help save billions of dollars annually in fuel and maintenance costs.

Friction is one of the important reasons for failure of systems and essential engineering parts used in aerospace, military, and industrial applications. The annual price of friction and wear – material losses and associated energy is estimated to be over $700 billion — 5% to 7% of the United States’ $ 14 trillion gross national product.

NanoMech has devised a proprietary bio-inspired nano-engineered solution using a design procedure with ground-breaking chemistry to produce innovative lubrication under almost all operating conditions including extreme situations.

The nGlide® additive technology invention, in field tests for another use sector, has shown unprecedented developments in performance of grease lubricants by just as much as 1000% that can also safely prolong the life of the Earth’s hydrocarbon supply chain while making machines operate considerably better and longer.

Mr. Neil Canter, the Editor of Tribology and Lubrication Technology Magazine, said of NanoMech’s advanced nGlide® technology, “their mixture of solid lubricant nano-particles with environmentally friendly organic additives supplies an unique set of properties that are not matched by any additive commercially available today.”

“We are honored to receive this acknowledgement and move forward our breakthrough technology, with unprecedented capability, that may raise machine and vehicle operation by enhancing durability and the life of components, while solving the world-wide demand to save fossil fuels.”

Nanomech and Cameron Announce Breakthrough in Lubrication Science


Springdale nano-engineering firm NanoMech declared a partnership to provide its TriboTuff lubricant to flow and valve gear maker Cameron.

Cameron, headquartered in Houston with a significant operation in Little Rock, supplies improved mechanical valves which are an integral element to the hydrocarbon supply chain for gasoline and petroleum. The deal to use the latest nano merchandise of NanoMech will result in 10 to 20 new high-paying occupations with more to come, at the Springdale facility of NanoMech, company officials said.

TriboTuff is an effect of the patented nGlide technology platform, developed by NanoMech creator and University of Arkansas researcher Ahay Malshe of NanoMech. It’s designed to enhance the operation of friction bearing vehicles and machines while reducing the quantity of fossil fuel used.

NanoMech chairman and CEO Jim Phillips said in a news release the partnership with Cameron has helped “quickly forwards our nGlide initiation into the biggest industry on the planet.”

National Science Foundation Awards Grant to NanoMech


The National Science Foundation has awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to NanoMech, LLC to fund development of nanoparticle-based capacitors. NanoMech’s exceptional process used to form the capacitors creates devices with features that are considerably improved. These improvements are vital to the electronic equipment production sector which increasingly seeks miniaturization by incorporating passive apparatus into printed circuit boards.

Nanoparticles are the smallest scale materials currently available to scientists for biomedical and industrial applications. They range in size from about 1/1,000th to 1/10,000th the width of a human hair.

“Our novel approach to depositing nano-sized ferroelectric particles in an ordered, multi-layer assembly should provide substantially better performance in comparison with the random particle arrangement that’s formerly been achieved. As new generations of consumer electronics need constantly increasing component densities through use of embedded capacitors, this invention could end up being a big boost to U.S electronic equipment makers,” says Ajay P. Malshe, Chief Technology Officer of NanoMech.
