SGT is currently involved in developing and commercializing following products, which are at various stages of production development:


    • image002Nanocrystalline powders of TiC


    TiC is a model structural material due to its hardness, high temperature stability, and low density. TiC powders are used as an anti-wear/anti abrasion material and in making cutting tools, grinding wheels, polishing paste, magnetic recording heads and crucible for smelting metals, etc. In cermets TiC can substitute tungsten carbide (WC) due to their similar properties of high hardness and wear resistance.




    • Helically coiled carbon nanotubes (HCNT)


    SGT is currently involved in process optimization; scale up of the synthesis process developed by Dr. A.M. Rao, Co-Founder of SGT. The advantages of SGT’s coiled carbon nanotubes include their unique capability in preparing these coiled nanostructures on bare surfaces.  Nanocoils can be grown on any surface that will withstand the synthetic temperatures. The process needs no pre-formed substrates and expensive plasma sources, it is inexpensive, scalable, and is thus a commercially viable process


    HCNT can be used in designing multifunctional polymer nanocomposites, membranes for water filtration, and as coatings on fibers.


    • Nanofluids


    SGT is developing in-situ nanoparticle synthesis and dispersion techniques to prepare nanofluids for heat exchanger applications.


    Developing energy efficient heat exchangers is of primary importance in many diverse applications such as microelectronics, transportation, manufacturing, and buildings. One of the major challenges in improving the performance of heat exchangers is to improve the heat transfer performance of cooling fluids. Conventional heat transfer fluids have poor heat transfer properties.
