Nanovere was founded in 2003 by Thomas Choate. Twenty-one
years earlier, Thomas began his scientific journey at
age 16 while working for Progressive Dental Laboratory
in Brighton, MI. He began to develop skills in the art and science of manufacturing porcelain teeth (crowns),
dental metallurgy, high heat ceramics and porcelain
In 1986, Thomas founded Felix Dental Arts which focused
on creating "life-like" dental prosthetics for local
In 1989, Felix Dental Manufacturing was founded with a
focus on developing specialty dental materials. Felix developed the world's first polyurethane
hybrid dental polymers with a thermal
expansion of 0.05%, dental adhesives,
super-hydrophobic coatings, mold release
agents and educational study models for dentists and
dental technicians. Felix Dental was then sold to American Dental Supply
(ADS) in PA.
ADS continues to market the Felix
branded products including Plastical, Petrosil & Diax globally to dental laboratories,
dentists and Universities.
In 2003, Thomas founded Nanovere Technologies using key
scientific concepts, materials and processes he invented for the
dental industry. Nanovere began the development of
highly scratch, chemical and UV resistant nanocoatings
with self-cleaning properties. The technical challenge
develop multi-functional nanocoatings that would outperform
"all" leading automotive OEM coating competitors.
After 5 years of extensive research and product development, Nanovere
introduced the world's first Dendritic Polyurethane Coating systems in 2008.
Nanovere began working
closely with leading organizations including GM, Jaguar,
BMW, Boeing, Club Car & Polaris.
In 2009, Nanovere began joint development efforts with
BASF, Bayer MaterialSciences, Accuride Truck Wheels and
Sveza Les OOO based in Russia. Nanovere's
proprietary dendrimer based
coating resins dramatically improve the overall
physical properties of leading coating resins and
In 2011, Nanovere partnered with Nippon Paint in Asia under a
global licensing agreement. Nippon is the #1 paint
manufacture in all of
Asia and the 5th largest paint manufacture in the world.
Today, Nippon manufactures and markets Nanovere's
proprietary coating dendrimers to improve crosslink
density, scratch resistance, chemical resistance and UV
resistance within Nippon coating systems.
markets the Nanovere dendrimer platform under
trade name CyGlaz.
In 2012, Nanovere receives US patent grant US20080226829
for the world's first "Dendritic Polyurethane Coating"
system. Nanovere holds 2 global patents and 9 global
In 2013, Nanovere introduced the world's first air cure
wipe-on clear coating platform to exceed automotive OEM
specifications. The Nano-Clear product portfolio is
manufactured by Nanovere in Brighton, Michigan and sold globally
through distribution channels.
