Nano Labs Announces New Technology to Produce Medical Hydroxyapatite
May 16 13
Nano Labs Corp. announced the development of a new nanotechnology to convert eggshells into hydroxyapatite, which is a material employed for endodontics, restorative dentistry and other applications in orthopedics and prosthesis. Bone and teeth are formed of an organic component, collagen, and a mineral phase, hydroxyapatite, which is a ceramic material also known as a bone mineral. It is found in teeth and bones and makes up to 50% of bone by weight. Hydroxyapatite is the main mineral used in dental enamel and is also commonly used as a filler to replace amputated bone or as a coating to promote bone ingrowth into prosthetic implants. Many modern implants (i.e. dental implants and hip replacements) are coated with hydroxyapatite and it is one of the key materials for developing bone grafts with bioactive nature. Nano Labs' technology consists of a method that converts eggshells into hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is produced through a hydrothermal conversion with the agro-industry byproduct, eggshells. Commercial grade calcium dibasic phosphate (CaHPO4.2H2O) and lime (CaO) are obtained from direct calcination of the eggshells.
Nano Labs Corp. Announces New Technology in Self-Cleaning Paint
May 6 13
Nano Labs Corp. announced the development of a self-cleaning paint that degrades pollutants through a proprietary nanoparticle compound and natural light. The eco-friendly, advanced nanotechnology paint coating will keep exterior surface material performance and appearance standards for much longer periods of time. The new product is suitable for application on a wide variety of materials including metal, cement, bricks and wood, and may be used in anything from buildings, car parks and roads, to refineries and pipelines. The new coating can significantly reduce maintenance requirements for companies and governments and increase the lifespan of these expensive capital infrastructure investments. The Company has completed initial prototype testing and is preparing for submission of standardization and accreditation tests that are required prior to commercialization.

Dr. Perry is currently Director of Development and International Affairs at Hautes Etudes d'Ingénieur (HEI), Ingénieurs pour le Monde (Engineers for the World), a member of the CGE, the French Ivy League of Engineering and Business Schools, where he has successfully deployed his technical, managerial and political skills in expanding the Global Industrial and Academic Programs and Partnerships at HEI.
Nano Labs Corp. and CIVIK to Begin Testing Nanotechnology Coatings with Commercial Led Lighting Systems
May 1 13
Nano Labs Corp. announced the company has signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with CIVIK of Mexico. The NDA will allow CIVIK to review and test 2 of Nano Labs' nanotechnologies, the nano insulate coatings and nano diamond applications, on CIVIK's proprietary LED light system. The two nanotechnology applications being tested are as follows: Employing Nano Labs' nano insulate coating, NC2012, which may allow the LED light to dissipate heat created in the LED housing thereby increasing the efficiency and life of the LED light, projected at over 55,000 hours, and: Applying the nano diamond coating on the LED light glass face thereby benefiting the system by making the light brighter and protecting it against environmental damage. The companies are working together to establish a Letter of Intent (LOI) which would outline the establishment of a strategic alliance and joint venture for the manufacturing and distribution of the technology.
