NaturalNano Key Patent for the Process to Use Halloysite Nanotubes for Nanocomposites Including Heat-Treated Clay and Polymer is Allowed by the USPTA

Rochester, NY | Posted on June 21st, 2012

NaturalNano's CEO James Wemett commented, "We continue our efforts to expand and protect the uses of HNT as we explore new commercial applications. The claims allowed for this patent will cover NNAN's processes for utilizing HNT in nanocomposites including heat treated clay and polymers. This is the second NNAN patent application that has had its claims allowed in the last 30 days and strengthens NNAN's position as the world leader in the industrial applications for Halloysite. We continue to aggressively explore opportunities to expand commercial uses and licensing opportunities for HNT."
