NASHUA, N.H., Dec. 15, 2017 — Silicon Sense Inc., the U.S. representative of Finnish nanodiamond manufacturer Carbodeon Ltd. Oy, has become the first U.S.-based importer of detonation nanodiamond materials to be granted registration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to import nanodiamonds into the country for industrial purposes.

The registrations, under the low-volume exemption (LVE) rule, cover four main Carbodeon product ranges including three monofunctionalized nanodiamond grades and one multifunctionalized grade.

“Following precise environmental risk analysis using data from Carbodeon as well as invaluable inputs from a number of our U.S. customers, the EPA has granted LVE registration for all Carbodeon proprietary nanodiamond materials currently supplied in the U.S.A.,” said James Meriano, vice-president of Silicon Sense.

“Customer safety and environmental issues are always among our top priorities,” said Vesa Myllymäki, CEO of Carbodeon. “This EPA approval will further strengthen our already strong position in the U.S. market place and beyond. The four approved types of nanodiamond product are used in enhancing thermal, mechanical and other properties in polymers, coatings and metal finishing across multiple industries including electronics, automotive, aerospace and defense, industrial and consumer.”
