Star Nanotech, LLC. offers nanotechnology solutions towards energy efficiency and reduction of environmental pollutants. Founded on discoveries of the unique properties of nano materials, specifically when used in the design of lubricants. We are located on the Centennial Campus, a research and development park at NC State University, with offices and an additional manufacturing facility currently under construction in Mebane, NC.
Our globally patented method of producing nanoparticles by laser synthesis delivers structures much more precisely, and with more specificity than current production standards that rely on chemicals or magnets. The resulting materials are much more customizable, and have a greater ability to effect change on a larger scale.
Without the use of chemicals, Teflon or wax, our material oil-additives employ a unique combination of super hard nano and softer microparticles that reduce friction and wear from multiple angles. By polishing and permanently filling microscopic peaks and gaps, a hypersmooth surface is created that requires less lubricant and stays clean by not allowing dirt to cling in the first place. To compliment that, other particles are designed to act as ball bearings, with all of the structures working together to produce enough of a charge to repel dirt before surface contact.
