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.”
