NEI Patented Coatings Technology Brief

While great strides have been made in academic circles to understand the different surface phenomena of ‘smart coatings’, commercial products to date have met with limited success because they are not engineered to meet all of the functional performance requirements that an application may need. Over the past few years, NEI Corporation’s concerted efforts to develop and implement practical, multi-functional coatings have now come to fruition. Full Tech Brief »

NEI introduces durable, anti-fog coating – NANOMYTE® SAF-100

Today, NEI introduced NANOMYTE® SAF-100, an optical grade, anti-fog coating with excellent abrasion and water resistance. The coating passes EN 168 for Mist Retardant Anti-fog Coatings and also exhibits anti-frost properties. SAF-100 also provides a high degree of mechanical stability, with a pencil hardness of HB. As a result, the anti-fog properties are retained after repeated washing with soap and water. Full Press Release »

NASA Tech Briefs features Solid Electrolyte Work with NEI Corporation

“High-energy-density and safe rechargeable batteries are required for NASA’s future exploration missions. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are attractive energy storage systems due to their relatively high energy and power densities. However, the unfavorable side reactions between the electrodes and the liquid electrolyte adversely impact performance. These interfacial reactions are in the form of either anodic oxidation of the electrolyte, or dissolution of the cathode…”  Full Article »
