Confidential


Tesla NanoCoatings Inc Strong Intellectual Property • 11-patents exclusively licensed • 3-patents pending –  Self-healing polymer compositions –  Biological Biocide Additives for Polymer –  Composition for corrosion prevention

“Not a technology looking for a problem”


Solutions and Variants • Initial product platform for Steel Infrastructure –  Several variations •  Sacrificial pigments •  Topcoat • External Pipeline Coatings • Extensive list of Derivative products –  Pipeline internal diameter corrosion –  Drag reduction –  Erosion resistant –  microbiologically influenced corrosion –  Marine anti-fouling / drag reducing –  High temperature and pressure downhole coatings


Tesla NanoCoatings Inc Greener alternative • Reduce or eliminate –  Spills/leaks –  Heavy metals in coatings –  Volatile Organic Compounds –  Need for corrosion inhibitors and anti-friction additives –  Landfill waste


Carbon Nanotubes •  Strongest and stiffest material known •  Chemical bonds stronger than bonds found in diamonds •  Current-carrying capacity - 1,000x greater than copper •  Tensile strength - 50x greater than steel


Function of Nanotubes •  Carbon Nanotubes selfassemble into ropes •  Quantum Nanowires form electron path •  Reinforce / Stiffen / Toughen the coating


® Teslan

Basic Science •  Cathodic potential is established thru electrochemical reaction •  Acts like galvanizing or sacrificial plating •  Coating is always the anode donating electrons
