In the mid-1990s, a revolutionary nanomaterial was created. It was called Boron Nitride Nanotubes.

With features including electrical resistivity, strength, and thermal stability and conductivity, NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and government researchers identified these nanotubes as “necessary to advance future technologies.”

There was just one problem: at the time, researchers couldn’t figure out how to apply this material to the real world. Now that’s become possible, thanks to BNNano.

BNNano is an advanced manufacturing company that’s created NanoBarb, an enhanced, patent-pending Boron Nitride Nanotube. When added to commodities, this tube improves a material’s natural properties.

Applying this material means aluminum can become as strong as steel or titanium; polyester can behave like Kevlar; and the material can open new possibilities with respect to aviation and space applications.

BNNano owns the entire IP portfolio protecting its NanoBarb. In 2020, it was named a “Most Fundable Company” by Pepperdine University, and awarded an R&D agreement with the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School.
