NaturalNano Receives Initial Commercial Order From Leading Body Armor Manufacturer for Use in New Generation of Protective Products

Rochester, NY | Posted on June 6th, 2012

Jim Wemett, CEO of NaturalNano, commented, "We entered into a Joint Development and Supply Agreement with Sparta Armor which was executed in January, 2012. I am extremely pleased to receive the first commercial order from Sparta Armor and proud to contribute to improve their outstanding optimized performance armor products which enhance the personnel safety for our military and police. Both companies have worked hard to advance the product improvements enabled by our HNT to this point. We look forward to building on our relationship in the future."

J.J. Wendell, CEO of Sparta Armor, said, "Sparta's focus has been on ballistic and blast shielding products including individual body armor advancements and our work with NaturalNano has the potential to yield some of the most significant products in the history of our company." Wendell continued, "The incorporation of naturally occurring Halloysite Nanotubes (HNT) into Sparta Armor's ballistic panels negates the requirement of heavy, brittle, and expensive advanced ceramic plates by significantly increasing yield strength with no loss of elongation properties. The challenge has always been finding a highly reliable and dispersible nano-scale additive to work with our technology. NaturalNano's HNT solves this problem for us."

Sparta Armor (spartaarmor.com/thespartagroup.us/) has developed advanced materials using nanotechnology for military, industrial and civilian applications by sponsored research programs through DOD, DSO/ DARPA, and Major Defense Contractors. Their specialty is Ballistic and Blast protection with a goal of lightening the load for the war fighter and vehicle programs
