NanoMas Technologies, Inc. was founded in 2006 by three seasoned inventors, widely recognized as experts in the field of nanotechnology, ink development and material science. The company is involved in all phases of nanotechnology and nanomaterials including research, development, engineering, and commercialization.
NanoMas offers a variety of inks, including silver and gold nanoparticle-based inks for printable electronics. Nanoparticles-based inkjettable inks for front-side metallization of solar cells are currently in development.
NanoMas inks are designed for applications in various technologies including:
- Printable solar cells
- Solar cell conductive grid and busbar metallizations
- Flexible and flat panel displays
- Radio frequency identification antenna and integrated circuits
- Printed circuit boards
- Reflective mirrors and metallic coatings
Our innovative technologies allow production of printable conductive inks for printable electronics. Printed electronics are area scalable, mechanically flexible, and manufactured with a process similar to typical printing.
Based in Endicott, New York, NanoMas closed Series A financing of $2.7M in September 2008 led by BASF Venture (Germany), Earthrise Capital (NY) and Nanomaterial Investors (NY). Leveraging its core nanoparticle manufacturing process, the company intends to deliver formulated products that exceed the unmet demands in the high growth markets of solar cell manufacturing, printed electronics and electronics assembly.
