SiO2 Nanotech, LLC was incubated in March 2010, from SiO2 Associates, an informal partnership.
Our motto is: "From lab to fab!" We take our developed technology from the laboratory to fabrication! We insert patented technologies into specific manufacturing or fabrication lines. To accomplish this, we adapt our innovative and practical solutions such as our VitreOx™ and Wet Nanobonding™ technologies. Our range of patented technologies and applications range from the following applications, but not limited to: electronics, medical/surgical devices, solar cells, sport/occupational wear.
The following technologies are currently under the process of commercialization, or incorporation into a manufacturing process.Wet Nanobonding™ is a technology that bonds materials at a low temperature (below 200° Celsius), which is typically considered ineffective in conventional wafer bonding procedures. Wet NanobondingTM simplifies the bonding process by effectively bonding at a low thermal budget, as well as maintaining the structural integrity of materials that are being bonded.VitreOx™ was developed as a result of interacting with surgeons and NIH researchers. Initially, VitreOx™ was proven effective in the elimination of "fogging" of intraocular lenses in secondary cataract surgery. As a matter of fact, VitreOx™ has been successfully applied to at least ten patients, by Dr. Clive Sell, and his team at Associated Retina Consultants. In addition, orthopedic surgeons, brought up the need for anti-fog solutions to eliminate fogging on surgical lenses during endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures and surgeries, due to a combination of body temperature and bodily fluids.
Other interested parties include athletes that use vision protection in sports such as football, scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding; additionally occupations that require vision safety gear such as construction and laboratory work.(Pictured below: The helmet visor to the right has been treated with VitreOx™)
