About NanoPhyll

What We Do

NanoPhyll develops innovative nano-composite coatings for applications in the buildings, construction, transportation and industrial processing industries that are environmentally sustainable in both their use and benefits. We produce the only multifunctional, ultra durable and sustainable coatings available in our target markets. Our cost-effective solutions are tailored to address client-specific needs, typically reducing materials consumption, improving labor productivity, and extending the life of their assets.


Founded in 2015, NanoPhyll is headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, with a research and development facility in Hamilton, Ontario and a sales office in the Bay Area of San Francisco, California. In 2016, the Company formed a partnership with McMaster University, in Ontario, and the University of Sherbrooke, in Quebec, to bring state-of-the-art research work in nanotechnology to market. A collaborative effort was also launched with Natural Resources of Canada’s Advanced Materials laboratory to formulate new nanocomposite coatings.

In 2017, NanoPhyll launched its first customer proof-of-concept projects in Quebec, Canada. By 2018, NanoPhyll had filed several preliminary patents and received the Most Innovative Product Award at Toronto Building Show. In the same year, NanoPhyll had its first product sales and had partnered with a contract manufacturer to scale production. Today, NanoPhyll is generating volume sales into the construction and transportation sectors with pilot projects in the metals and mining processing industry.

Our Technology

NanoPhyll harnesses the power of nanotechnology by functionalizing nanoparticles and incorporating them into a range of durable, robust and efficient products that can be tailored for different applications. These functionalized nanoparticles are bound to a polymer matrix with a strong covalent bond that prevents the leaching out phenomenon suffered by many other nanocomposite coatings. These multi-functional nanoparticles deliver multiple benefits in a single coating solution.
