Home > Press > NaturalNano Working With Fortune 50 Chemical Company: Begins Two Funded Projects

Abstract:
NaturalNano, Inc. (OTCBB: NNAN) (FWB: N3N), a developer of advanced nanomaterials and extended release nanotechnologies, today announced that it has begun work with a Fortune 50 chemical company on two funded projects for uses of Pleximer™ and their halloysite nanotube (HNT™) technology. Pleximer is the Company's additive for creating stronger, lighter and less expensive products. One project is fabric-focused and the other is for an adhesive-based product. Financial terms were not disclosed.

NaturalNano Working With Fortune 50 Chemical Company: Begins Two Funded Projects

ROCHESTER, NY | Posted on May 20th, 2008

NaturalNano (www.naturalnano.com) said the fabric-focused project seeks to increase the longevity of color dyes in fabrics, using the Company's Pleximer and its patented technological process to allow a more uniform dispersion of HNTs throughout the material. This is expected to provide color dyes with a better attachment to the fabric in order to increase color fastness.

"These projects represent additional examples of the broad range of potential market applications for Pleximer technology," said Cathy Fleischer, President of NaturalNano. "Working with dye-fastness is a new arena for us, but one that we feel holds a great deal of potential."

The second project focuses on leveraging NaturalNano's industry-leading extended release capabilities for industrial and household adhesives. Using NaturalNano's process that enables the filling of the hollow tube structure found in HNT, the two companies are exploring the potential to enhance multiple properties within adhesives, including improving lifespan, durability and adhesion.

"Our innovative efforts in controlled release, which led to our license with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and helped us to win innovative funding awards, is once again paying dividends as we have the opportunity to explore the potential inherent in the adhesives market," Fleischer added. "This is another new and logical market extension for us as the core desired attributes of adhesives -- strength and lifespan -- are perfect tasks for HNT nanocomposite adhesives. We look forward to bolstering products used everyday by millions of businesses and individuals worldwide."

Fleischer concluded: "We are excited about the potential these projects hold for the development of the next generation of nanotechnology-enhanced products. These projects are a starting point for what we hope will be a long-term relationship that can grow to encompass numerous new technical areas."

NaturalNano noted it is contractually unable to name the Fortune 50 company in these projects.
