Advance NanoTek Limited was formed in 1997 to commercialise an advanced materials technology originally developed by the University of Western Australia. The technology was first scaled-up via a joint venture with Samsung Corning Co. Ltd, of Korea (2000 to 2004), and then as a stand-alone operation. Advance NanoTek Limited is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and trades under the ASX code ANO. Advance NanoTek has expanded from its original research-based foundations to the development of a broader range of advanced material opportunities. Advance NanoTeks' core skills now include the development, manufacturing and marketing of innovative products based on a range of proprietary advanced material technologies and manufacturing processes. To date, Advance NanoTeks' commercialised products include metal oxide powders, dispersions of zinc oxide and recently end product formulations ("ZinXation").
