Indium Corp. recently announced that it has acquired the processes, equipment and know-how of Reactive NanoTechnologies, Inc. (RNT), developer and manufacturer of NanoFoil®. Indium will move the RNT process and equipment, as well as a core staff, into its Utica Business Park facility in Utica, N.Y.
