NanoMech chosen as a technology finalist this year
“We are honored to be among the globally recognized technology leaders by R&D 100,” Phillips said. “Our GuardX technology will further revolutionize the automotive, trucking, aerospace, marine, construction, oil and gas, agricultural and military industries. GuardX will save organizations millions of dollars by reducing and/or eliminating wear, abrasion, corrosion, moisture resistance, thermal management and fireproofing. This recognition is a wonderful tribute to our scientists at NanoMech.”
The annual award is considered an "Oscar" in the technology industry because it identifies and celebrates the top technology products of the year.
Past winners have included sophisticated testing equipment, innovative new materials, chemistry breakthroughs, biomedical products, consumer items and high-energy physics. The R&D 100 Awards spans industry, academia and government-sponsored research.
The award was established in 1963 and over the past 53 years has recognized such revolutionary products as the flashcube (1965), the automated teller machine (1973), the halogen lamp (1974), the fax machine (1975), the liquid crystal display (1980), the Kodak Photo CD (1991), Taxol anticancer drug (1993), lab on a chip (1996) and HDTV (1998).
