ApNano Materials Inc. created the world’s first commercial nanotechnology- based solid lubricant called NanoLub. NanoLub’s unique structure of nested spheres lubricate by rolling like miniature ball bearings. Discovered at the Weizmann Institute of Science by Dr. Menachem Genut, CEO and Co-Founder of ApNano Materials, and members of the Institute’s Nanomaterials Synthesis Group headed by Professor Reshef Tenne. At the Soreq Nuclear Research Center, NanoLub powder was subjected to space durability outgassing tests. The results were well within the range of acceptable limits. In the low pressure of space environments conventional liquid and grease lubricants are generally not suitable. NanoLub was found that it doesn’t outgas and also does not produce contaminants. The high stability and contaminant-free nature of NanoLub makes it an ideal lubricant for many demanding, large volume markets. Major markets areas such as clean environments, semiconductor and chip fabrication, the pharmaceutical industry, precision motors and motion mechanisms, optical guidance systems, opto- mechanical devices and in various types of analytical instruments. Volkswagen Group, one the world’s leading automobile manufacturers, has announced that it has included ApNano Materials products in its automotive nanotechnology program. Due to high interest from global customers, the company is raising $ 4 Million dollars for building a semi-industrial fabrication facility. For background information ApNano Materials was established in 2002.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
