New Technology Precisely Controls Heat, Enabling Innovation Across Key Industries

Hunt Valley, MD | Posted on December 21st, 2006

Developed and manufactured by RNT, NanoFoil, which precisely controls the instantaneous release of heat energy for joining and reaction initiation applications, is providing immediate benefits to thin film coatings, aerospace, defense, automotive and other industries seeking joining solutions current technology cannot effectively or economically address. In addition to large and small scale joining of critical item such as sputtering targets, RNT's patented NanoFoil enables reaction initiation for propellant ignition, flares and fuses, making such applications predictable, controllable and far more affordable. When activated by a small pulse of local energy from electrical, optical or thermal sources, the foil delivers localized heat in a fraction of a second.

Expanded Production Capacity and Joining Services

With the installation of a new, high volume, vapor deposition unit, RNT has quadrupled its production capacity. The company can manufacture over 3,000 square feet of NanoFoil per month - depending on foil thickness and customer specifications. This new production capacity delivers NanoFoil at significantly lower costs and opens up entire new markets, particularly for large-area joining applications.

"With extensive interest from a variety of industries, it was essential we increase our production capacity to meet demand," said Dr. Omar Knio, co-founder and Senior Vice President of RNT. "RNT has devoted a great deal of time and energy during the past year towards the large-scale commercial expansion of NanoFoil. The culmination of our expansion efforts over the past year, the high volume vapor deposition unit greatly expands our ability to deliver NanoFoil's benefits to a variety of industries seeking improved bonding performance with lower stress, bonding of dissimilar materials and increased efficiency."

Joining Services for RNT Customers

Along with the increase in production capacity, RNT has also expanded its Joining Services department. RNT can perform all joining services for its customers in-house at its Hunt Valley location; or alternatively, it provides installation and training services for customers seeking to license the bonding process and manage it themselves.

"It's extremely simple to adapt existing facilities to perform RNT's patented NanoBond process," added Joseph Grzyb, Chief Executive Officer for RNT. "To ensure a smooth transition, RNT provides necessary equipment, training, on-site and on-call technical support. With our expanded, low cost manufacturing of NanoFoil, NanoBond is fast becoming the method of choice for assembling critical components such as metal and ceramic sputtering targets for the glass coating, advanced display and tool coating industries."

About RNT
Headquartered in Hunt Valley, Maryland, RNT was founded in 2001 by engineering veterans Timothy P. Weihs, Ph.D., who now serves as Chief Technical Officer, and Omar M. Knio, Ph.D., who is RNT’s Senior Vice President. The company develops and manufactures NanoFoil® to precisely control the instantaneous release of heat energy for reaction initiation and joining applications that current technology can not effectively or economically address. RNT has also developed its patented NanoBond® joining process to ensure the benefits of NanoFoil are maximized.

Commercial distribution of NanoFoil for energetics and joining applications is taking place from RNT’s onsite manufacturing facilities. The company is utilizing its financial backing from a variety of sources – including over $5 million in government grants from agencies such as the National Science Foundation – to further develop applications and processes, and craft its patented technology for additional markets. RNT has also signed licensing agreements with a number of Fortune 500 Companies. Its breakthrough technology has earned several prestigious awards including the 2005 “R&D 100” from R&D Magazine, the 2005 Nano 50™ from NASA Nanotech Briefs Magazine and recognition in The National Nanotechnology Initiative Strategic Plan in December 2004.
