Materials Solutions

NanoArchitech provides multiple solutions for infrastructure projects with our nanoceramic composite concrete replacement. Our range of nanoceramic materials offer a synergistic solution to solving climate change while building back better with longer life materials that are green, sustainable, and net zero. Our green nanoceramics self cure with an exothermic chemical reaction even below freezing. They do not need a kilning process, they cure at relatively low temperatures with their simple exothermic curing process. We have solutions for the challenges facing the built environment and the professionals that create and maintain it.

Bridges & Tunnels

Unlike conventional Portland cement, our rapid-setting & early strength development nanocomposites offer a faster and stronger solution while eliminating the high carbon cost of common cement. Nanoarchitech’s materials can be de-molded in 2 hours and achieve the required compressive strength in 24 hours (28x faster than concrete.) Our nanoceramic composite concrete replacements far outlive the concrete they replace. Our materials are highly crack resistant and resist liquid absorption. These attributes help these materials limit corrosion of any internal reinforcing elements. The material’s exothermic cure means it can be used below freezing without changing the mix. It also exhibits minimal shrinkage which further aids large infrastructure projects in many ways. These faster, stronger, long life, and more consistent attributes allow faster rates of construction, reduced costs, safer reopening, as well as greatly reduced traffic congestion time which further reduces carbon emissions.

The material also exhibits low thermal conductivity which would dramatically help to reduce the high thermal mass, urban heat island effect that concrete creates.

Our nanoceramic materials quick setting, high bond strength, and high early compressive strength assists tunnel infrastructure projects speed, safety, and batch work. The high bond strength also means our nanoceramics materials are able to repair damaged concrete. This reconstruction method has the potential to save billions of dollars and months of time rejuvenating damaged material with high-impact reinforcement and encapsulation.

Dams & hydroelectric

Nanoarchitech’s nanoceramics are a great concrete alternative for dams. They have minimal liquid absorption, minimal shrinkage, are extremely crack resistant, have a low thermal expansion rate, and minimal shrinkage as they cure.

Culverts are also an ideal use of Nanoarchitech’s long life, high bonding, & corrosion resistant materials. Our materials high bond strength, extremely fast strength development, and minimal shrinkage allow simpler and safer on site rework as well as infrastructure repairs to help seal out environmental effects on existing structures. Its liquid absorption resistance and crack resistance protect reinforcing elements much better than concrete. Our materials work extremely well in demanding and corrosive environments where concrete does not last.

Power plants, generation, and transmission – all ideal use cases of nanoceramics.

Nanoarchitech’s materials exhibit high radiation shielding, a 3000°F temp rating, low thermal conductivity, and a net zero carbon footprint. They are a fantastic choice for power plants, fission, fusion, solar, wind, hydroelectric, power transmission, and substation needs where concrete is typically used. They require no kilning, have an exothermic curing reaction, and have minimal shrinkage as they cure.

Toxin & radiation sequestration

Our materials offer long life, low liquid absorption, high crack resistance, and high radiation blocking properties. Our nanoceramic radiation shielding is approximately 4x higher than concrete. They are an excellent choice to shield or encapsulate these harmful elements.

Sea Walls, Breakwaters, Piers & Coral Reefs

Our nanoceramic’s low liquid absorption rate along with its low thermal expansion, and high crack resistance means our materials are a perfect choice for harsh environments like piers, sea walls, breakwater features, and man made coral reefs.

Our high bond strength means different features can be added to sea walls to help restore the biodiversity that is typically displaced when a sea wall is added.


Utilizing our high-performance, high density thin panel and finish materials have multiple advantages over concrete in the built environment. Rain screens, wall panels, siding, roofing, and many more construction materials made from our nanoceramic composite materials. With it’s fire resistance, low thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion, and 3000°F (1648°C) upper temperature limit, our nanoceramic composites are an excellent choice to help combat climate change and natural disasters.

Concrete crack repair, stamped concrete, concrete resurfacing, and slabs are all places where nanoceramics can replace high carbon concrete.

Concrete has evolved

Nanoarchitech evolved from the late John Orava’s work and his companies, Orava Research and Orava Applied Technologies. His lifetime achievement was eliminating the carbon footprint and other negative attributes in typical concrete construction with his nanoceramic alternative. His patents in nanoceramic composites will live on in his award winning materials. We will carry the torch of stewardship and innovation by laying the groundwork of tomorrow. Our climate tech will combat global warming while helping to build back better. Work with us and our powerful, resilient solutions for a brighter future.
