PITTSBURGH, PA | Posted on February 11th, 2008

PPG Industries (NYSE:PPG) has acquired the assets and intellectual property of NanoProducts Corporation, Longmont, Colo., a producer of nanoproduct materials and a developer of nanoproduct technology. Terms were not disclosed.

The nanoparticle technology company has an extensive patent estate and operates pilot facilities for the development and manufacture of unique nanoparticles.

"This acquisition significantly strengthens PPG‘s nanotechnology patent portfolio and positions us as a world leader in nanoengineered materials," said James A. Trainham, PPG vice president, science and technology. "With these new materials, PPG can offer its customers and development partners unique, high-value solutions. PPG will also license nanotechnology solutions, particularly in areas outside its existing businesses."
