Home > Press > RNT continues worldwide expansion with opening of its first European office

Abstract:
Reactive NanoTechnologies, Inc. (RNT), developer and manufacturer of patented NanoFoil, which precisely controls the instantaneous release of heat energy for joining and reaction initiation applications, today announced the opening of its first European office. Located in Munich, Germany, the new office will provide onsite applications engineering, as well as localized sales and marketing support for its growing European customer base.

RNT continues worldwide expansion with opening of its first European office

HUNT VALLEY, MD | Posted on October 22nd, 2007

"NanoFoil represents a significant breakthrough in bonding for sputtering targets and other high performance applications and as a result, demand for our technology has increased dramatically among European markets," said John Hannafin, vice president of business development for RNT. "As a result, we felt the time was right to expand our services and capabilities to the European market with the opening of this office in Munich, Central Europe's technology hub."

The office, located at Adelheid Strae 32, officially opened in August of 2007 and is being led by RNT's newly appointed European Engineering Manager, Etienne Besnoin, Ph.D. Dr. Besnoin, a recognized expert in the numerical modeling of exothermic reactions for joining applications, has been with RNT since January 2004 and holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.

Benefits: NanoFoil and NanoBond

NanoFoil and its use in NanoBonded targets is providing immediate benefits to thin film coatings, display, optics, semiconductor, aerospace, defense, automotive and other industries seeking superior deposited films. NanoBond produces a virtually void free solder bond with low residual stress, higher melting temperatures resulting in potential higher sputter powers and greater film deposition rates. 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.

About Reactive NanoTechnologies, Inc. (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 RNTs 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 RNTs 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.
