The “Rule-of-Three”. BORTEK (Turkey)
Within this section, Nanobugle will test the 3 main key success factors for the development of new nanotechnology / nanoscience companies.
This week: Turkey
1) How was the company born?
BORTEK Boron Technologies and Mechatronics Inc. is located in the Technology Development Area in Eskisehir Industrial Zone. BORTEK Boron Technologies and Mechatronics Inc. carries on Research and Development activities and produces Boron Nitride and Boron end products and high tech materials.
2) Added value of the products/services
Boron nitride (one of the their products) coatings are used in non-ferrous metal casting and extrusion etc. in order to generate surfaces with high temperature resistance and low wettability. Thus prevent sticking of molten metal and slag on die surfaces. Boron nitride coatings can withstand higher temperatures than graphite coatings.
Some of their main products are:
• BORON OXIDE GLASS
• TURBOSTRATIC BORON NITRIDE
• HEXAGONAL BORON NITRIDE
3) Business Strategy
The company believes that there are no limits to the creation and development of innovative solutions. Boron BORTEK and Mechatronics Technologies Inc. is also colaborating with research groups from universities in Turkey.
