The sports fix

Abstract:
Potential customers were slow to grasp how Integran's nanotechnology applications would work in their business - until they got their hands on a new kind of golf club shaft

Gino Palumbo stared in awe at the lightweight metal golf shaft in his hands.

After three years in development, the one-of-kind shaft, made by fusing a nickel alloy coating to a graphite core using nanotechnology, was ready to undergo production.

"It was definitely a 'wow' moment," Mr. Palumbo, founder, president and CEO of Toronto's Integran Technologies Inc., recalls of the first time he held the finished product.

Historically, a developer of metals for the aerospace and defence industries, Integran felt frustrated by the slow-and-cautious approach of creating metal coatings for those industries and it decided to opt for quicker-to-market solutions.
