TAL Materials and Silbond Sign Licensing Agreement

November 4, 2003
Silbond Corp. and TAL Materials, Inc. have signed an agreement for Silbond to employ TAL's technology for the production of certain metal oxide and mixed metal oxide nanopowders. TAL's technology allows the production of custom-designed metal oxide and mixed metal oxide nanopowders in commercial quantities at competitive costs. Silbond is a leading producer of ethyl silicate, a principal precursor chemical for many of TAL's nanopowders. "This partnership allows both TAL and Silbond to meet the needs of customers in the rapidly developing field of nanopowders," said Peter Gray, president of TAL Materials. "When TAL undertakes the development of a nanopowder for a customer's application, one of the customer's first concerns is whether commercial quantities of affordable powders can be available following a successful development. TAL can now assure the customer that the potential for commercial supply exists."
