Specialty chemicals company Nouryon is partnering up with U.S.-based startup Forge Nano to explore ultra-thin coatings called atomic layer deposition.

The companies have complementary footholds in ultra-thin coatings: Forge Nano develops precision nanocoating technology, and Nouryon supplies metalorganic building blocks, including trimethylaluminum and diethylzinc.

Specialty chemicals company Nouryon is partnering up with U.S.-based starup Forge Nano to explore ultra-thin coatings called atomic layer deposition.

“These building blocks enable ultra-thin coatings to be engineered and assembled one atomic layer at a time onto the surface of materials, enhancing their physical properties without affecting overall functionality, which opens up entirely new frontiers on material performance,” said Paul Lichty, founder and CEO of Forge Nano.

“It is now possible to control coating surfaces at the sub-nanoscale level and produce them at a commercial scale.”

The agreement is an example of Nouryon’s focus on collaborative innovation to develop new products and technologies, said Steve Hunt, Vice President of Business Development at Nouryon.

“We are targeting multiple applications in catalysts, batteries and other markets through this agreement. By working closely with partners like Forge Nano, we can use our combined expertise to introduce new solutions to customers across a range of markets.”
