Published on 2012-07-23. Author : SpecialChem

SINGAPORE -- NanoMaterials Technology Private Limited has announced that it has appointed Nagase Singapore Private Limited for marketing and distribution of its nano-precipitated calcium carbonate ("NPCC") and nano-metal oxide dispersion products ("Nano-D") in Asia. The appointment is to support its rapid growing business and expanding opportunities throughout the region.

NPCC is a nano-sized functional additive in a wide range of applications such as coatings, rubber, plastics, architectural materials, adhesives, lubricants, paper and light chemicals. Nano-D is a series of nano-sized metal oxides such as zinc oxide, cerium oxide and antimony tin oxide dispersed in a wide selection of water-based or solvent-based media. These Nano-products are highly transparent and have excellent dispersability even at high solid loading (50%) which give unique properties such as UV and IR light absorbing/relecting anti-abrasion, anti-oxidizing, anti-static, photo-catalytic, oxygen-storing, electro-conductive, etc. Nano-D products are widely used in applications such as coatings, plastics, rubber, solar control film, electronic materials, and lubricants etc.

"This appointment is a milestone to NMT as we are expanding our business from contract research to commercialization of our own nano-materials," said Mr. David Sher, Managing Director of NMT. "We are glad to partner with Nagase Singapore as we have many synergies in terms of the target applications, customers and geographical coverage," he further added. "We believe that nano-products have a great market potential in this region. NMT is able to mass produce these nano-materials economically which makes them more accessible to the market," said Mr. Kusuo Ota, Managing Director of Nagase Singapore. He further said, "We will work with NMT, togehter with our affiliated companies to introduce nano-materials to our extensive customer networks, and expand the products portfolio from NMT."
