AUSTIN, TX and CAESAREA, ISRAEL /Marketwire/ -- Nano-Proprietary Inc., through its subsidiary, Applied Nanotech Inc. (ANI), and NanoReady Ltd. of Israel announced a strategic alliance for the manufacture of metallic nanoparticles in volume, using NanoReady's wet-chemistry process.
The initial focus of the strategic alliance will be volume production of copper nanoparticles to be used on a worldwide exclusive basis by ANI and its partner in Japan (a leading industrial chemical products company) for producing ink-jet copper inks for the flexible electronics, solar cell, digital printed circuit board (PCB), and other industries.
The current agreement with NanoReady is highly important due to ANI's fast progress in developing ink jet copper inks. Based on this progress, ANI and its partner in Japan decided that it would be important to secure volume production of copper nanoparticles and, in the future, other metallic nanoparticles for their metallic ink products.
"We are very pleased to cooperate with NanoReady and develop our products based on their proprietary wet-chemistry process that is inducible to high-volume production of copper nanoparticles required for our ink products," said Dr. Zvi Yaniv, President and CEO of ANI.
Ronen Frish, NanoReady's CEO, adds: "The cooperation of our two companies opens a broad range of new opportunities within the ink industry and will lead to opportunities in additional industries."
