NanoMech Wins 2012 Innovator of the Year Award from Leading Nanotechnology Trade Organization: NanoMech recognized with Apple, IBM, GE, and others for its innovation in advanced materials engineering and manufacturing

Springdale, AR | Posted on August 31st, 2012

"We are very proud of this recognition," said Jim Phillips, NanoMech Chairman and CEO. "The breakthrough technologies the NanoMech team has developed, such as nGlide®, TuffTek®, and TriboTuff®, have led to this tremendous honor for our family of loyal employees and very supportive investors. NanoMech is focused on innovating by applying breakthrough novel science into "must-have" products bringing immediate and drastic improvement into existing major markets."

The NanoBCA ( is the industry's top trade organization dedicated to promoting the advancement and commercialization of nanotechnology while helping companies bring affordable, life-improving nanotech products to the market.

Mr. Vincent Caprio, the CEO of the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association said, "We are very proud to single NanoMech out of the vast field of up and coming emerging nanotechnology companies in America. NanoMech is a clear leader in converting massive brainpower and applied research to market-ready products that will disrupt huge companies overnight in the energy and manufacturing sectors, bringing immediate efficiency and performance improvements to these global industries! They are clearly a company to watch and at the top of our list."

Dr. Ajay P. Malshe, the CTO of NanoMech said, "In 2012 NanoMech commercialized two nano-engineered product platforms never achieved before. TriboTuff is a nano-inspired industrial lubricant which reduces friction (to near zero) and wear of mechanical parts by orders of magnitude allowing hundreds of percent enhancement in wear reduction in machines, vehicles, and components such as valves, gears and much more. These performance increases also produce incredible energy savings. Our second nanotechnology platform of products is TuffTek coated cutting tool inserts and wear parts made of carbides, metals and ceramics. As natural resources such as metals and ceramics are depleting nationally and globally, TuffTek radically transforms surfaces with nano engineered coating solutions, that increase the life of cutting tools and wear parts by as much as 1000% while enhancing their performance and sustainability."
