Nano Pet Products to debut new uses for nanotech fabrics May 6, 2009: Nano Pet Products LLC, a Wilton, Conn.-based company dedicated to bringing cleaner and healthier pet products to pet owners worldwide through nanotechnology, will debut an expanded line of dog beds and apparel, new feline beds, and a new line of equine apparel called Dog Gone Smart Horse Wear at the Zoomark International show at the BolognaFiere Exhibition Center in Bologna, Italy, May 7-10. Nano Pet Products LLC is the worldwide exclusive licensee for pet products manufactured with NanoSphere, a proprietary fabric finish technology based on nanotechnology from Schoeller Technologies AG, Switzerland. “Our partners and clients rely on Dog Gone Smart to provide revolutionary nanotechnology products that are not only cost-effective and environmentally friendly, but also durable and long-lasting,” said Chris Onthank, founder. Onthank is currently seeking co-branding partners to expand the use of Dog Gone Smart(TM) Technology using NanoSphere in the international pet industry. The NanoSphere fabric finish uses nanotechnology, creating a non-visible structured textile surface so that coat oil, dirt, and liquids run off the surface. The fabric is highly abrasion resistant and stands up to frequent washing. NanoSphere was developed in Switzerland and carries the label “bluesign approved.” The bluesign standard is based on the world’s strictest EHS (environment, health and safety) stipulations for textiles and examines all the relevant components from the very beginning of the manufacturing process. Nano Pet products are also bacteriostatic, inhibiting the spread of bacteria that can cause odor.
