CARY, NC – BNNano, a Boron Nitride Nanotube manufacturer of the NanoBarb™ has entered into an agreement with business strategy and advisory firm Ruhl Strategic Partners. Ruhl has become an investor in BNNano and will define, initiate, and execute key industry partnerships to accelerate market adoption of BNNano materials and achieve sustainable growth.
Boron Nitride Nanotubes are small hollow tubes with diameters of just 5 to 20 nm. They exhibit exceptional physical and chemical properties. Most noteworthy, they possess super-high strength and stiffness, ultra-high thermal conductivity and electrically insulative, neutron absorbing and other positive chemically stable characteristics. “For these reasons, there is significant application potential and interest across a variety of industries for our nano materials,” stated Steve Wilcenski, Founder and CEO – BNNano. “Our NanoBarbs™ are easy to use, requiring no advanced chemistry or handling. Also, there is a consistent supply by virtue of our high-quality, high-purity production process. Finally, we have achieved a cost advantage through our production process, expanding the accessible applications for our materials,” said Wilcenski.
“Boron Nitride nanotubes are mechanically similar to carbon nanotubes but with key favorable attributes, like electrically insulating and absorbing of radiation,” stated Adam Harms, Managing Partner – Ruhl Strategic Partners. “We are excited to partner with and invest in BNNano to identify unmet market needs and leverage our ecosystem of industry partners to uncover opportunities to propose nano materials as a solution. This will be key to overcoming barriers to market entry, enabling and accelerating transformational growth.”
NanoBarbs™ are commercially available in powders, resins, plastics, and filaments. With so many promising applications, across various markets, the opportunities for growth are very attractive. “We look forward to working with Ruhl to exploit their strategic acumen to pursue the right market activities to advance the proliferation of this innovative material,” said Wilcenski.
BNNano, Inc. delivers Boron-Nitride Nanotubes and NanoBarbs™ to a variety of markets seeking novel and innovative additive manufacturing capabilities to current and future products. The company has pioneered a patent pending manufacturing process that allows the company’s products to be delivered in low cost, at high volume and in a variety of forms: powder, pellets, filaments and resins. The nanotubes and NanoBarbs™ have exceptional characteristics in mechanical strength, electrical conductivity, hydrophobic properties and thermal conductivity. Started in 2016, the company was founded by senior scientists with a history in material science innovation. BNNano’s manufacturing facility is in Burlington, N.C., USA.
