NanoAl LLC is a materials research and technology company dedicated to design, development, and commercialization of high-performance aluminum alloys based on scientifically-designed nanostructures. NanoAl was formed after 17 years of research at Northwestern University on advanced aluminum alloys.
The motivation to start the company was the need to develop high-performance alloys without the use of expensive and rare elements. Together, Dr. Nhon Vo, Dr. David Dunand, and Dr. David Seidman incorporated NanoAl LLC in 2013. The first product developed was a creep-resistant aluminum alloy for electrical wire bonding applications, followed by a number of innovative products including the Addalloy® family of powdered aluminum alloys developed specifically for 3D printing processes.
NanoAl is proud to receive numerous awards and contracts from small and large industrial partners as well as the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, and the National Science Foundation. NanoAI continues to serve its clients in US governmental agencies and Fortune 500 companies. NanoAl LLC was acquired by Braidy Industries Inc. in September 2018 to form the core research group at Braidy Labs. With a growing team and more resources, the company is accelerating the commercialization of NanoAl technologies.
