VANCOUVER, BC, Canada | Posted on June 28th, 2008

Operating from the recently established nanotechnology lab facilities in Tucson, Arizona the business of ZPM is commercialization of new high-tech products utilizing nanostructured materials for coatings, nanoparticle reinforced composites, and nanostructured polymers. Considered new cutting edge business opportunities for the 21st century, nanotechnology involves the engineering of functional systems and products at a molecular level with sizes generally in the range of one-billionth of a meter.

ZPM is currently permitting for the mining of the unique Saponite ("clay") from the Burro Creek, Arizona deposit. ZPM utilizes the unique Saponite clay in the production of polymer nanocomposite for water treatment and rheology control applications. The production of organoclays from the Burro Creek deposit will be based on a combination of new surfactant and process technologies developed by ZPM. The distinctive advantage of ZPM materials over competitive products is in extreme, high-temperatures providing stability and greater overall performance. The new barrier nanocomposite materials are now undergoing commercial pilot-scale testing in partnership with industrial manufacturers.
