Ohio Company Forecasts our "Next Industrial Revolution"

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Tesla NanoCoatings expects to have banner year in corrosion control.

 

With a successful first year of commercialization efforts under its belt, an expanded professional staff and new applications and markets to tap in the near term, Ohio’s Tesla NanoCoatings looks to be a “leader in the growing national fight against corrosion in 2013,” according to its president Todd Hawkins. The company makes corrosion-control coatings for a variety of uses, and expects tremendous growth in the coming year and beyond.


“We started out serving the U.S. Military market with highly effective corrosion-control coatings to protect their steel structures, using carbon nanotubes. We have now commercialized our product, expanding into the oil and gas industry and into protective industrial maintenance coatings,” said Hawkins.


“Industrial corrosion costs U.S. industry more than $400 billion annually. But it doesn’t always get the public attention or the state or local funding for research it deserves,” he said.  “We want to demonstrate our leadership through developing corrosion mitigation and nanotechnologies that really begin to attack this serious problem. We also want to lead education efforts so the public really understands this problem,” Hawkins added.


Tesla opened a research center and laboratory at Stark State College in Ohio in 2012, and Hawkins says the company will also launch new products in 2013 that will protect aircraft aluminum, and several petrochemical applications including a pipeline coating.


“Many large government agencies, such as the Dept of Defense, and large manufacturers grasp the potential and promise of our technology. And, we are beginning to get inquiries from many international entities as well,” he said.
Hawkins credits the “forward thinking” of Ohio for leading the way in anti-corrosion technology.


“There is no better place than Ohio to do what we are doing right now. The state has always been a global paint and coatings leader. Now, with the forward thinking of the state, industry leaders, The University of Akron, and the US Dept of Defense, we are all in the beginning stages of our next industrial revolution.”


“In 2013, we at Tesla NanoCoatings will be doing all we can to educate the public on this huge issue of corrosion and to continue to develop the technologies and the applications right here in Ohio,” he said.
