NanoMech

NanoMech, which provides advanced lubricants for the trucking industry, has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Army to develop advanced multi-functional textiles using patent pending technology platform, nGuard®.

"I applaud the Army's decision to award NanoMech this ground-breaking contract, which demonstrates the innovation and advanced technologies developed in Northwest Arkansas,” said U.S. Senator Tom Cotton. “I’ve seen firsthand the tremendous operation NanoMech has built over the last several years. They are a leader in the tech community and are attracting top engineering and scientific talent to Arkansas."

A nano-engineered chemical finish will improve current uniforms by shielding soldiers against diseases such as malaria, zika, etc.

James M. Phillips, Chairman and CEO of NanoMech, said, “As a veteran, I am proud to be associated with being selected in this innovative effort to protect America's soldiers! The $235,000 contract will be most helpful along with NanoMech's very significant financial investment to help create the most advanced military apparel in the world."
