FOREMOST Consortium introduces first composite coating based on ApNano Materials' nanoparticles

Abstract:
ApNano Materials, Inc. a provider of nanotechnology-based products, has announced that the pan-European FOREMOST consortium has completed the development of its first composite coating, based on ApNano Materials' nanoparticles (inorganic fullerenes - IF).

The new coating is being considered for plating advanced parts by some of FOREMOST partners and other
industrial firms, to achieve improved efficiency, reduced emission, and extended equipment lifetimes in harsh conditions. The coating developed by FOREMOST has better lubricating properties than several commercially available ones tested under the same conditions, lasting tens of thousands cycles longer.

The innovative coating was introduced in a meeting of the scientific and executive committee of FOREMOST (Fullerene-based Opportunities for Robust Engineering: Making Optimized Surfaces for Tribology), held in Israel in February.

"We are proud that this distinguished pan-European consortium has introduced the new coating, based on our technology, which will contribute to the global efforts to save energy and reduce pollution," said Dr. Menachem Genut, President and CEO of ApNano Materials.
