Fast Pitch: Nanophase Technologies

Abstract:
Nanophase Technologies (Nasdaq: NANX) likes to say it is "transforming the boundaries of performance ... today," and that phrase seems to fit this interesting small cap.

The company is a leading developer and commercial manufacturer of nanomaterials. It produces these products for a variety of diverse markets: personal care, sunscreen, abrasion-resistant applications, environmental catalysts, antimicrobial products, and a variety of ultra-fine polishing applications, including semiconductor wafers, hard disk drives, and optics.

Nanophase has two distinct and patented processes for the preparation and commercial manufacturing of nanopowder metal oxides. It has developed a process, Discrete Particle Encapsulation, to coat the surface of its nanoparticles with a thin polymeric shell that enables compatibility of the particles with a wide variety of fluids, resins, and polymers. Its products are available as nanoparticles, surface-treated nanoparticles, and stable nanoparticle dispersions in aqueous or organic media, providing customers with nanomaterials in readily usable forms.
