Altair Nanomaterials, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Altair Nanotechnologies Inc.
Altair owns a proprietary technology for making nanocrystalline materials of unique quality, economically and in large quantities. The company produces closely-sized nanoparticles of titanium dioxide and related ceramic oxide materials and compounds. Applications are found in products such as advanced batteries, fuel cells, thermal spray coatings, specialty paints, catalysts, plastics, cosmetics, solar cells and self-cleaning and sanitizing materials. In line with its cutting-edge position in nanotechnology, Altair is also designing materials to suit the nanoparticle applications of the future.
The technology may also be used to make paint pigment at a cost forecast to be substantially lower than commercial technologies employed today.
Altair Nanomaterials' key asset is its team of highly motivated and experienced researchers and scientists. The team has a broad background of research and production experience in the materials science and natural resources fields that enables it to achieve quick success in the development of advanced materials. The core research group has worked together on pigment and nanomaterials development for over eight years.
