NanoRidge Materials, Inc. Signs Contract for New Defense Armor

Houston, TX | Posted on July 20th, 2010

NanoRidge Materials, Inc., a Houston based nanotechnology manufacturing company has partnered with Riley Solutions, Inc. to manufacture and supply specialized nanotechnology enhanced armor for the Department of Defense. As part of the partnership, Riley Solutions, Inc. is moving their headquarters from North Carolina to Houston, Texas, resulting in NanoRidge Materials, Inc. expanding into a 55,000 sq. ft. facility in the Houston area and creating 300 new jobs for the region within the next three years.

NanoRidge Materials, Inc., in close partnership with Riley Solutions Inc. (RSI), is delivering a groundbreaking armor for rigorous testing against the most destructive small arms fire. The armor is a remarkable blend of the very best in conventional light armor materials with the most advanced application of nanotechnology. This blended layering fundamentally improves the armor's resilience to impact and penetration, and thus defeats the hostile round as it strikes the new composite material. After passing selection, this armor will provide U.S. military and law enforcement personnel serving at home or around the world with a better, lighter, and more cost effective protective solution than has ever been deployed before.

NanoRidge Materials, Inc. and Riley Solutions, Inc. have teamed to design and produce nano-enhanced products and have identified the key to efficiently exploiting nanomaterials for mechanical reinforcement. Using specialized processes to adapt the highly versatile chemistry of carbon nanomaterials, their natural bundles are dispersed to create stronger linkages that can then be incorporated into armor composites.
