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.”

KDH Defense Systems CEO, Dave Herbener, said, "We pride our company not only on exceptional design expertise, but also on continuous process improvement. NanoMech's nGuard is the best bacteria resistant shield we have ever tested, and it is a perfect fit for our product portfolio. 

"We remain steadfastly focused on our mission to engineer and manufacture superior life-saving products. Utilizing the highest standards of quality control, nGuard integrates perfectly into our mission of excellence and superior products combined with unparalleled customer service."

"nGuard delivers unsurpassed performance such as elimination of bacteria, fungus, and odor, while retaining color fastness, extending the efficacy and life of the product,” said Dr. Ajay Malshe, NanoMech's CTO and founder. “Our patent-pending technology is inspired by unique but simple phenomena in nature. nGuard is bio-inspired, providing the most effective and safe method for bacteria removal."

NanoMech Inc. was founded in 2002 and creates advanced engineering materials through patent and patent-pending nano-inspired and nano-manufactured product development.

KDH Defense Systems, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of American-made custom body armor solutions for military, law enforcement and federal agencies.

The nGuard technology platform is a proprietary and patent-pending multi-component additive for sustainable product applications in a variety of industry sectors.
