Integran is the world leader in revolutionary metallurgical nano-technologies, pushing the boundaries of "lighter, better, cheaper" with products enabled by our electrodeposited nanocrystalline "Nanovate" metal platform. Integran and its predecessor organizations have been at the forefront of metallurgical nano-technology development for over twenty years.

From the first large scale structural application for nano-structured materials (in the award winning Electrosleeve process for nuclear steam generator repair) and one of the earliest issued US patents in the field of nanotechnology, Integran has established an international reputation for excellence in materials product development and commercialization. Integran owns the intellectual property rights for the cost-effective production of metallurgical nano-structures with close to 400 patent filings made since incorporation in 1999, dealing with the structure, composition, processing, and application of its revolutionary materials.

 

What sets Integran apart is our ability to provide an unprecedented combination of expertise in electrochemistry, metallurgy, materials science, process engineering and IP protection to enable our partners and customers with new technology in an accelerated timeframe. Integran also enables and supports its select customer base to obtain their own product/process IP in their specific business areas.

Integran is open to discussing any business opportunities for customer alloy development, licensing, application development and manufacturing. Contact us today to discuss your next generation product requirements.

Fundamental R&D Begins

What is now Integran began through a coordinated research effort in the 1980s, spearheaded by Professors Uwe Erb and Karl Aust, and Dr. Gino Palumbo.

Early 1990s

Nanometals Corp. is Born

Capitalizing on newly developed technologies, Nanometals Corp. was founded -- a strategic partnership that included Ontario Hydro. 

Mid 1990s

The Electrosleeve Process

The first industrial application for nanostructured materials is established in the Electrosleeve process for nuclear steam generator repair. 

1999 

Babcock and Wilcox Merger

Nanometals Corp., Ontario Hyrdo, and Babcock and Wilcox merge repsective intellectual property to launch Integran Technologies.

2002 - Present

Accelerated Expansion
