NaturalNano has declared that it received the permit for a highly crucial patent that deals with the usage of the company’s own Halloysite materials for “Nanocomposite Master Batch and Method of Manufacturing”.
James Wemett, the acting CEO of the company, stated that the company anticipates the issuance of the patent in the early part of 2012. He added that the patent will help establish the company’s position as a major player in the field of halloysite materials.
According to Wemett, one of the key challenges in the manufacture of reinforced polymers is obtaining a total mixing in the molding equipment to attain superior quality components and achieve very low cycle times. The technique covered in the patent will enhance profits of customers and minimize costs
