NanoDays 2011 Smithsonian National Museum of American History, Lemelson Center (Spark!Lab)
 
Nanotec-USA will be participating in the NanoDays 2011 event hosted by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, Lemelson Center.

NanoDays is a nationwide celebration of nanotechnology aimed at teaching the general public--particularly children--about nano science and invention and the role it plays in our daily lives.

The public is invited to participate in hands-on demonstrations of Bionic Nanotechnology function.

The staff from Nanotec-USA will have examples of everyday materials that have been treated with Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics Smart Surface treatments.

See how water beads up on sand acquired from the beach in Galveston, Texas that has been made Bionic. Watch the same NanoBionic sand grab oil from sea water. NanoBionic  jute (burlap) material will be demonstrated in it's ability to clean floating oil spills.

Watch in amazement as drops of water race across cork and textiles that have been made Bionic.

Watch as fine dirt is self-cleaned from glass that has been made Bionic when you roll a drop of water across the surface. Watch this youtube video of NanoBionics in action as a NanoBionic Jeep drives through muddy water. NanoBionic Jeep Video

There will be examples of how Bionic Nanotechnolgoy is in use on consumer electronics to be made easier to clean. Observe gold plated surfaces that are now protected from damage caused by finger oils.

Learn the difference between hydrophobic and hydrophilic Bionic function and he benefits of each.

Learn how NanoBionic Nanotechnology has helped a land speed record car go faster with less fuel and power, due to an increase in laminar flow and an increase in aerodynamic efficiency.

Learn how NanoBionic Nanotechnology can help reduce maintenance and fuel consumption on aircraft.

Try your best to get a drop of water to go into holes in wood treated with our NanoBionics WoodGuard treatment.

Learn how vehicles are transformed into virtually self-cleaning and more fuel efficient machines that require less maintenance to the surfaces treated with NanoBionics Nanotechnology products. Take a look at this video of Nanotec-USA transforming a show vehicle during the Las Vegas SEMA Show. This H2 Tank was built by ProMotor Sports
 
In cooperation with Steve Madewell, Manager of Spark!Lab, there will be a live display showing tomato plants that have been grown using Bionic sand as a man-made water table.
 
We had a great time last year during the NanoDays 2010 event, teaching the kids, their parents and teachers about how Nanotec-USA NanoBionics treatments can make life cleaner and easier one nano-particle at a time.

NanoBionic jute (burlap) solution for the oil spill clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico

Nanotec-USA and their business associates have been working hard at engineering eco-friendly solutions to assist in the containment, clean-up, and protection of the coastline and the marsh wetlands. Two days after the Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill happened, Nanotec-USA started treating various materials with their different NanoBionics bionic nano-technology treatments. 

Our first solution, the NanoBionic Sand, was engineered to immediately halt and sink the surface and sub-surface oil escaping from the ruptured pipeline. We submitted this solution to NOAA and the Deepwater Horizon Response organizations by way of their Alternative Response Tool Proposal worksheets.

Even though we have not gotten responses back from NOAA or Deepwater Horizon Response, Nanotec-USA continues to work towards eco-friendly and safe solutions to help contain the spilling oil, protect the coatlines, protect the wetlands and swamps, the ecosystem in the Gulf of Mexico, and other bodies of water being threatened by the oil spill.

Nanote-USA now has a solution for oil floating on top and subsurface: jute (burlap) material treated with NanoBionics Textile treatment. After treating strips of jute with our hydrophobic treatment for textiles, we noticed the bionic nano-structures grabbed the oil from the water and would not let go.

We then shredded jute then treated it with our hydrophobic NanoBionics Textile treatment. After a brief drying time we deployed the now Bionic shredded jute onto burned motor oil floating on salted water. With a little agitation the Bionic shredded jute grabbed hold of the oil, leaving clear water.

Once the Bionic jute grabs as much of the floating oil it can, it can be easily skimmed from the surface of the Gulf of Mexico water and/or the wetlands water.

Another solution is to treat large sheets of jute with our NanoBionics Textile treatment that is oleophobic (oil fearing). These Bionic jute sheets can be used as protection curtains, deployed onto beaches and the swamp lands to help prevent the oil from seeping into the ground.

Nanotec-USA will continue to try to make contact with federal, state and local government agencies until they give our technology a fair chance.

If you agree that the government agencies should be giving companies like Nanotec-USA a chance to prove their technology a viable solution, please forward the link to this news page.

Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics Nanotechnology SandGuard treatment might be a solution to help with the oil spill clean-up efforts. NanoBionic_Sand_clean_up_test_result.JPG

The staff at Nanotec-USA believes they have a solution that will help speed up the containment and clean-up efforts of the oil spill in the Gulf. Nanotec-USA's staff treated ordinary beach sand left over from a trip to Galveston Beach, Texas with Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics SandGuard treatment and left to dry.




After the sand was dry, our staff spread the now NanoBionic-Sand over old motor oil that had been poured into a clear glass container. The glass was agitated to simulate the natural movement of the ocean. Within seconds, the oil started attaching itself to the NanoBionic-Sand then dropped to the bottom of the glass.

More sand was added to the floating oil, with the same positive result. After a few applications of the NanoBionic-Sand the only thing that remained on the surface of the water was salt residue from the beach sand. The oil that grabbed onto the NanoBionic-Sand remained on the bottom of the glass.

Back in June of 2009, Nanotec-USA had done some testing of their NanoBionics SandGuard treatment with silica and natural sand for this very purpose. Water was added to the cup used for the testing as the water evaporated. We checked the test cup, the sand and oil that sank to the bottom of the plastic container never resurfaced.

The NanoBionic-Sand is very economical to make since the water-based NanoBionics SandGuard treatment is mixed six parts dry sand or dry silica to one part NanoBionics SandGuard treatment. The sand is then dried and ready to be packaged or loaded into a a drop bucket similar to those used for battling forest fires.

The theory of using the NanoBionic-Sand was sparked by watching an interview with a respresentative from the U.S. Coast Guard on the local news channel this evening. The best part about using the NanoBionic-Sand, the bionic nano-particles used to treat the grains of sand are safe for the environment.

This evening, the staff at Nanotec-USA treated silica donated by a testing facility for compatibility, the result, the oil sank quicker due to the heavy weight of the larger grains of the processed silica. The NanoBionic-Sand made from the sand sourced from Galveston Beach, Texas worked well but is much finer than the donated silica grains.

John Moore, Nanotec-USA's President has sent an E-mail with pictures attached to a representative at NOAA and the news room at News Channel 8, Washington D.C.

Nanotec-USA Demos Bionic Nanotechnology
During NanoDays 2010
Event link: http://bit.ly/It6l8

John W. Moore, President and CEO, Nanotec-USA will be at the Smithsonian Institute National Museum of American History during NanoDays 2010.

Mr. Moore met with Mr. Steven Madewell, manager of Spark!Lab a few weeks ago to discuss how to help educate today’s youth and adults about Nanotechnology. According to Mr. Madewell, the public associates the word “Nanotechnology” with science fiction or tiny robots.

Mr. Moore brought along examples of everyday items that his company had made Nano-Bionic with the Nanotec-USA NanoBionics treatments including Bionic sand, textile, glass, paper, cork and natural stone.

While Mr. Moore demonstrated the water and dirt repellent functions of the Nano-Bionic items, intermediate school students came into Spark!Lab. The kids took turns pouring water drops onto the Bionic surfaces and watched the water take off like a ball of mercury on most of the surfaces.

The kids were fascinated and asked Mr. Moore many excellent questions about NanoBionic Nanotechnology.

It was decided that Nanotec-USA would represent the Bionic Nanotechnology industry for NanoDays 2010 at the Lemelson Center inside the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.


Here’s a sneak peak at the fun experiments planned:

Mr. Moore will have several samples of everyday items on hand that have been treated with Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics Nanotechnology smart surface treatments. The event will provide today’s youth and adults the opportunity to participate in hands-on experiments. The experiments will include hydrophobic (water fearing) Bionic function evaluation and self-cleaning Bionic function of the treated samples, and making a manmade water table out of NanoBionic sand and top soil to name a few.


Nanotec-USA has also treated the metal screen material of a kitchen food strainer. Attendees will see the water ball up on the nano-structures docked to the metal mesh, not passing through the screen. Next they can blow canned air through the screen and feel that the surface is not sealed.

This experiment proves NanoBionics treated surfaces still breathe.

During intermission of the Spark!Lab experiments, Mr. Moore will prepare then apply Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics Nanotechnology treatment for plastic to several of the museum's clear plastic display cases. Attendees will learn how much area can be treated with just 5ml of NanoBionics treatment.

Demonstrations on April 3, 2010 will include preparing a stainless steel and a plastic surface then applying Nanotec-USA's specially engineered Anti-Influenz treatment. This treatment has been engineered to help prevent the spread of the H1N1 virus and the Avian flu.

Mr. Moore will explain how the Anti-Influenz treatment functions and explain the benefits of this advanced Bio-Nanotechnology smart surface treatment.

       Nanotec-USA introduces their NanoBionics professional product at the 2005 LasVegas SEMA Show

Nanotec-USA introduced their professional grade automotive NanoBionics products at the 2005 Las Vegas SEMA Show.
Although the folks with SEMA had assigned Nanotec-USA a booth in the overflow area outside of the main convention center, we still had a good show.

Nanotec-USA had sponsored the Eibech Sprints Audi A4 featured vehicle, the 8MM Productions Inc. PreRunner, several vehicles for ProMotor Sports.

While in LasVegas, John Moore, President of Nanotec-USA had met with the upper management of several hotels and casinos to introduce the NanoBionics treatments for concrete, stone, textile and stainless steel. Mr. Moore walked the facilities with the management to help identify surfaces that could be protected by the NanoBionics treatments. It was decided to have some of the gaming tables treated with Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics for textiles within the casinos for evaluation. 

Mr. Moore also applied Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics treatments for concrete and natural stone to small test sections on the expensive exterior stone surfaces, the high polished brass entery door framework, the glass in the doors and the bright metal slot machines. Nanotec-USA followed up with the managers of each establishment where the samples were treated, after a full 12 months, the samples were still in great shape.

Special thanks go out to Jeff Tanner at Passport Infiniti of Alexandria, Virginia for donating the FX35 rear hatch door assembly and Tony at American Auto Salvage in Woodbridge, Virginia for the dontaion of the chrome wheels used in our booth.

Nanotec-USA Sponsors ProMotor Sports for SEMA 2008
Nanotec-USA sponsored custom vehicle builder ProMotor Sports www.promotorsportspower.com by providing NanoBionics treatments and also completed onsite vehicle installations of the NanoBionics Automotive treatments in Las Vegas, before the SEMA Show.

Some of the vehicles built by ProMotor Sports are the General Tires killer lifted Toyota, Kicker Audio's wrapped H1 SUT, Continental Tires F430, the PassPort Electronics Porsche, Sony Audio's G37,  Hankook Tires wrapped FJ cruiser, Hercules Tires Ultimate Orange Challenger SRT8, and Totoya's booth vehicles, on which the laptop computers were treated.

Mr. Moore, President and CEO of Nanotec-USA was in Las Vegas from November 2-7 assisiting the ProMotor Sports staff by performing all installs of the Nano-Bionics treatments and meeting with companies to demonstrate how the Nano-Bionics treatments are applied to the surfaces.
 
Mr. Moore signed up several aftermarket installers and suppliers while in Las Vegas that will be distributing  and installing Nanotec-USA's products.

Nanotec-USA is also working with several of the leaders of  the automotive aftermarket Industry in offering NanoBionics VG09 single application kits for mobile electronics display screens. The manufacturer will the NanoBionics VG09 with each component to let the end user apply the Nano-Bionic treatment to the display screen. Once treated, the display screen will be protected from fingerprint burn in, be easy to clean and also reduce gare.

There was a lot of interest in the application of Nano-Bionics to reduce aerodrag and the easy-to-clean function by several Top Fuel drag racers at the SEMA Show.  Nanotec-USA will be working closely with these teams to provide the best products for each application on the vehicles.

Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics Nanotechnology is used on an aircraft, reduces fuel cost by 3%

We now have an Aviation Division to address fuel usage reduction due to better aero-dynamcis, corrosion prevention, surface protection needs and water repellency for the Aerospace Industry. Talking with captains of commercial airlines, they informed us they need our Aviation Glass Treatment to make taking off, inflight observation and landing safer.  Aircraft painted surfaces, wing leading edge bright metal surfaces and engine cowlings  treated with Nanotec-USA's NanoBionics AeroGuard treatments will have a reduction in Aero-drag and reduce the build up of ice on all NanoBionics treated surfaces.


The aircraft will also be much easier to clean without the need for strong chemicals. Unlike many traditional polymer based products currently applied to aircraft surfaces, Nanotec-USA's AeroGuard treatments will not cause streaks when expsed to rain.

The exterior surfaces of a corporate jet were refined then treated with Nano-Bionic AeroGuard SST treatments. The jet was in service for a 12 month period where as fuel usage was recorded. It was discovered, the Bionic aircraft had a 3% reduction in fuel consumption. It was reported as being close to a $5,000,000.00 savings in fuel costs for the client. The client also reported the aircraft has never looked so shiny and noticed a reduction in cleaning costs.
