Forge Nano Completes Intellectual Property Rights for Lithium-Ion Battery Production Using Atomic Layer Deposition Technology

September 12, 2017 | News Brief | Forge Nano has assembled exclusive intellectual property rights to produce safer, longer-lasting Lithium-Ion battery products with the company’s high throughput Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) coating technology. The company secured key exclusive IP licensing agreements and made significant IP acquisitions in 2017 to round out the IP portfolio for ADL battery materials, production process and other patents issued directly to Forge Nano by the USPTO.

“We’re really pleased with the progress Forge Nano has made over the past year,” said Paul Lichty, president/founder of Forge Nano. “Simultaneously finalizing our IP rights while completing the design, build and commissioning of our high throughput ALD coating tool capable of coating 2.5 metric tons per day gives our hard working team an incredible amount of satisfaction.”

Completion of the IP roll-up initiative enables Forge Nano’s customers and partners to confidently incorporate ALD surface modification coatings in battery products for enhanced safety, lifetime, end-use performance in cost-competitive, scale manufacturing.
