Letter to Shareholders of NaturalNano, Inc.admin
ROCHESTER, NY- (Accesswire – November 14, 2013) – NaturalNano, Inc. (OTCQB: NNAN) (http://www.naturalnano.com/) – Mr. Jim Wemett, CEO of NaturalNano Inc. (OTCBB:NNAN), made the following announcement:
In an effort to continually keep our shareholders and interested parties informed on progress made and significant developments with the Company’s business, the Management of NaturalNano Inc. is pleased to provide you with this update.
Great progress continues to be made with new product lines using our patented proprietary Halloysite NanoTubes (HNT). Our on-going ventures with some international firms allows us to identify new applications for HNT and then to establish on-going relationships with these partners during the commercialization process generating revenue for NNAN. Over the next year we expect to continue these early stage programs and introduce several new products for current and potential customers.
NaturalNano has established a strategic relationship to develop an advanced material used in armor that incorporates NNAN’s proprietary Halloysite NanoTubes (HNT). Our nano-scale additive is highly reliable and increases the yield strength. As a result of this collaboration, the first product utilizing HNT in the armor market has recently shipped to customers. We are excited to be a part of this kick off and look forward to a long term relationship with the marketer and many future orders for our HNT.
In 2012, we extended our arrangement with Fiabila S.A., a world leader in private label nail polish manufacture, three more years for their continued use of our patented technology of HNT tubes in lines of their commercially successful nail polish products. The latest product is for a customer who has a major nail polish line manufactured by Fiabila which is sold at the largest retailers in the USA, including Target, Wal-Mart, CVS and Walgreen’s. Their new market expansion of those lines into European Markets will also continue to feature NNAN’s patented HNT technology. In 2013, they placed their largest orders for HNT which resulted in a 60% increase over the previous year’s purchase of HNT. We expect this trend to continue into 2014 as they expand distribution to the European Union markets.
NaturalNano also continues to invest in expanding its patent portfolio. This strengthens our position as the world leader in the industrial applications for Halloysite and enables us to protect novel uses that expand our licensing opportunities. Our patents now cover the current projects and products that we have enabled our commercial customers to market.
NaturalNano maintains a 9300 sq. ft. commercial base in Rochester, NY that house our proprietary HNT processing facility. It has extensive lab facilities which have the equipment required for our commercial operations. Pictures of the facility can be viewed our web site http://www.naturalnano.com/ .
We continue to explore applications of HNT in the life sciences. Work, at Cornell University in Ithaca NY with Dr. Michael King’s laboratory, continues to evaluate the use of HNT as a surface treatment to assess it’s ability to increase surface areas. Dr. King’s work with NaturalNano’s HNT continues to build on our understanding of the potential role this may play in life science applications. A video of his work can be viewed at a scientific web site: http://www.jove.com/video/4248
Over the next several months, we will be updating our website to make it more informative and to provide Shareholders with expanded content.
Have a Great Holiday Season,
Jim Wemett, CEO
