Romeoville, IL, March 17, 2005 – Nanophase Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: NANX), a technology leader in nanomaterials and nanoengineered products, today announced the Company’s newest nanoengineered products that are targeted for textile and non-woven applications. NanoShield™ ZN-3010 and NanoShield™ ZN-3012 are dispersions of zinc oxide in water designed to be incorporated in coatings applied to a fabric or non-woven substrates. Zinc oxide is generally used to provide UVa and UVb blocking, as well as anti-reddening and anti-inflammatory skin effects, antimicrobial activity, and odor control. As such, the Company believes that the new nanoparticle dispersions impart valuable consumer properties to fabrics, tissues, and articles of clothing in a transparent manner.

Nanophase’s proprietary and patent-pending dispersions are unique due to their high solids concentrations, typically 30-50% by weight; high stability, typically one year; and non-agglomerated nanoparticles that are typically 60 nanometers. Ingredients in NanoShield™ dispersions are INCI approved and suitable for applications governed by cosmetic regulations.
