Nano-engineered surfaces enable the materials of the future.

A Global Leader in Surface Engineering Technology

Previously known as PneumatiCoat Technologies, Forge Nano is a global leader in surface engineering and precision nano-coatings. We specialize in making product improvements through the use of nano-technology. We turn laboratory innovations into affordable products with turnaround times never before seen.

With Forge Nano’s proprietary high-throughput manufacturing processes, precision nano-coatings are now a more accessible solution for applications from Lithium Ion batteries to a wide range of materials — powders, flats and objects — at price points unthinkable until now.

High Performance, High Throughput, Low Cost.

With Forge Nano’s technology, the days of nano-material coatings being too slow and expensive are behind us. Whatever your precision nano-coating needs, Forge Nano has the solutions to enable fast, affordable atomic level coatings and surface engineering. Our powder-on-demand system applies the principles of lean manufacturing to produce nano-coated particles – minimizing costs and maximizing potential.

With high throughput manufacturing capabilities at inexpensive price points, many technologies that were “put on the shelf” can now be reconsidered as viable commercial products. With major investments in application R&D, Forge Nano’s systems are well-poised to help usher a new wave of customized products to market.

What Are Nanocoatings?

A nanocoating is the sealing of a material at the atomic level through methods such as atomic layer deposition (ALD). The term nanocoating refers to the coating itself (e.g. a nanocoating on the surface of ‘x’ substrate) or it can refer to the process itself (e.g. …by nanocoating the surface with …). A nanocoating is...

Precision Nanocoatings are used to make PICOSHIELD® NCA, NMC and Graphite Products for Lithium Ion Batteries

Forge Nano are market leaders in providing precision nanocoatings to protect lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries against their most common degradation mechanisms. We provide ultra-thin, functional surface modification technologies to Li-ion batteries to deliver increased safety, higher energy, and longer cycle life. We use atomic layer deposition (ALD) technology to deposit these materials onto li-ion batteries, and...

Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and its Applications

Atomic layer deposition (ALD), is a common method to precisely control the growth of materials and fabricate thin films on a substrate- i.e. the formation of a coating. ALD is a vapor phase technique and the process of formation utilizes a layer-by-layer (LbL) method to grow and build the film using a bottom-up nucleation-growth...
