NanoMech, an international material science company and leader in nanotechnology innovation, is pleased to announce a partnership with KDH Defense Systems, Inc. to deploy technology that will keep soldiers and law enforcement professionals healthier and more comfortable through KDH’s award winning body armor.

"We are very excited to announce our partnership with a U.S. Defense manufacturer of the caliber and reputation of KDH Defense Systems,” said Jim Phillips, Chairman and CEO of NanoMech. “Our companies have worked together secretly for the last two years, backed by a Department of Defense grant award, to develop innovative strategic solutions for our soldiers."

Jim Phillips added, "NanoMech is also working with KDH to finalize the development of an advanced structured coating specifically engineered for hard military armors significantly reducing premature damages to hard plates from handling and transportation in the supply chain. These novel coatings will have thousands of applications.”
