Nanophase Technologies Corporation, a Delaware corporation was incorporated on November 25, 1989. It is an advanced materials and applications developer and commercial manufacturer with an integrated family of nanomaterial technologies. It produces engineered nanomaterials for use in diverse markets such as personal care including sunscreens, architectural coatings, industrial coating ingredients, abrasion-resistant additives, plastics additives, medical diagnostics, architectural window cleaning and restoration, and polishing applications, including semiconductors and optics. Nanomaterials are generally comprised of particles that are less than 100 nanometers in diameter and these nanoparticles have a range of unique properties owing to its very small size. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter, or about 100,000 times smaller in size than the width of a human hair. Nanomaterials have applications in diverse global markets where they are incorporated into a process, such as semiconductor polishing, or a product, such as an industrial coating to prevent degradation from ultra-violet radiation or improve wear resistance. Multiple markets exist for the company’s products since nanomaterials offer advantages in many applications, such as improved properties and performance, longer wear or product life, lower overall product cost, or in the development of new products or processes. It has manufacturing capacity based in two locations in the Chicago area. Within each of its targeted markets and product applications, Nanophase faces potential competition from advanced materials and chemical companies and suppliers of traditional materials. The manufacture and use of certain of the products that contain the Company’s nanocrystalline materials are subject to governmental regulations.
