N_charge to be used for nanocomposities development

The new N_charge technology platform, which was developed by Nanogate AG within the framework of the “Advanced Composites” programme initiated two years ago, for the first time enables the low-cost storage of electric charges in different underlying media such as glass, textiles and plastics.

The charge is not held for a limited time, but is permanent and also encompasses flexible, transparent and printable applications. This opens up numerous possibilities, primarily in the area of energy efficiency as well as use in various industrial applications.

Through Nanogate AG's new N_charge technology platform, which has an enormous range of potential applications, Nanogate is gaining access to further, highly promising application areas. Thus it is possible to provide functional textiles with a permanent electrostatic charge, significantly boosting their effectiveness as a filtration or separation medium.

Specific potential applications, particularly in the area of increasingly valued particulate filtration, have already been demonstrated. In addition, through a combination of existing properties, it is conceivable that the technology platform can be used for the low-cost construction of large, efficient energy storage devices. The technology can also be used in the
area of acoustic membranes.

“With N_charge we have developed a very exciting approach to the creation of storage layers, which will enable us to tap into new, highpotential application areas,” said Holger Zytur, who is responsible for the area of functional textiles at Nanogate.

“In recent months we have succeeded in transferring technology from the laboratory to industrial-scale applications and in empirically verifying our results with selected industrial partners. During the fourth quarter we expect to be able to present to the public the first specific products for electrostatic systems and future-oriented filtration,” added Ralf Zastrau,CEO of Nanogate AG.

“N_charge has outstanding growth potential and offers another impressive example of Nanogate AG's enabling capabilities. Along with Dotfarm Optics and Nanoplating, the patent-protected technology platform represents an important building block for future applications in the area of energy efficiency and 'green' nanotechnology,” explained Ralf Zastrau.

The Nanogate Group currently has 60 employees in all (as of 31 December 2007) and since commencing operations in 1999 has been a pioneer in nanotechnology. Nanogate is a high-growth company and has operated profitably since financial year 2004.
