We're proud and happy to be part of the Winners of the INNOSTARS AWARDS 2021 by EIT Health. The prize recognizes the merits and value of our NACRE Dental Implant System, the ultimate preventive solution to the major threat of PERIIMPLANTITIS, affecting the health and quality of life of millions of patients that undergo the standard care for tooth loss: Prosthesis on Osseointegrated Implants.
Our disruptive, metal free, new generation of implants, made of an advanced world patented ceramic composite, finally beats mainstream but periimplantitis prone Titanium Alloy devices that require retardant, painful & antibiotic intensive treatments (the so called "Hidden Cost of Titanium Dental Implantology”). Corrosion, cross-metal galvanization, heavy metal ions & particles filtered to soft tissues and blood vessels, are a true "Time Bomb" for the preeminent Titanium solution, which, for lack of better options so far, despite implant industry growth, and due to poor innovation, keep offer concentrated in a few dominant players (80%+ of implants is manufactured by 7 big corporations, none based in the EU).
NACRE, features a groundbreaking bioglass coating that keeps bacteria and biofilm colonization away from implants. New technologies also allow for advanced composites to adopt complex shapes (including Zygomatic and Pterygoid implants), and real integration with Titanium Systems, opening the blue ocean that can cure Periimplantitis in patients already suffering it in their mouths.
First version of our implant system (INPERIO) has finished clinical trials is nearing new CE/MDR stringent Medical Device marking & certification and shall be available in 2022.

The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to identify those solutions that bring together the protection of the environment and financial viability. Its aim is demonstrating that such solutions are not expensive costs but rather opportunities for clean economic growth. To address environmental challenges without compromising economic growth, the Solar Impulse Foundation has identified 1000+ clean and profitable solutions worldwide. We are now joining this select but fortunately growing club, to which we bring to bear our Material-Science knowledge and passion.
By offering political and economic decision-makers a Guide to Solutions that can be implemented on a large scale, the Foundation will help them establish a roadmap for the adoption of much more ambitious energy and environmental programs and thus achieve their carbon neutrality objectives.
What has just been labelled?
Our patented G3® patented inorganic, metal and phosphorus-free bioglass has demonstrated to be very effective and durable against a wide array biofilms in both relevant environments and clinical tests. It is easily and economically produced, contains no nanoparticles, and doesn’t generate antimicrobial resistance due to its action principle, based on membrane depolarization instead of metal ion membrane adhesion or penetration.
We have come up with a substance that does not leach metal ions or particles, and degrades as any other glass. It has a useful life measured in years vs. short lived metal based solutions. At Nanoker, we can integrate G3® in bulk or as additive in fibres, paints, polymers, plastics, cements and ceramics. Also used directly as coating on various surfaces. It is 100% biocompatible and as a coating can be used on medical devices, or as additive in bone-grafting solutions. Upon degradation, it is even good for soils due to its mineral content.

Versatility of our G3® Patented Eco Bioglass
In Nanoker, we have been working with G3® for years now, together with the CINN-CSIC Tech. Institute and their oustanding team. The potential of G3® was quickly identified for use on our medical devices as a biological seal due to its proven efficiency and bacteriostatic properties.
Hence, G3® became a pivotal part of our medical device endeavours. Either as part of bone graft ceramic composites, or as coating substance in Nanoker’s new generation of Dental Implants, NACRE. NACRE is the FIRST preventive, all advanced-ceramic (metal free) global, patient-centric, personalised, wordwide patented & already clinically tested Medical Device solution to PERI-IMPLANTITIS and its overall health consequences beyond implant failure.
But the possibilities of G3® go a long way farther.
The G3® Bioglass can be produced in various adaptable microstructures. It is important to underline that this is not a nano-material. Therefore it’s not affected by restrictions related to nanoparticlerelease during lifespan or by degradation), including spherical grain, fibers, etc. Hence, it can be used in a wide array of products as a sustainable, “green”, biodegradable, non-metal, non-particle release, non-leaching and totally biocompatible antimicrobial aditive or even raw material.
Antimicrobian possibilities of G3®
Uses as antimicrobian aditive include, but are not limited to its inclusionin paints, sintetic textiles, polymers, plastics, cements, glass, ceramics… As a raw material, it can be used as coating for glass, ceramics, metals. Such coating can be implemented via thermal coating + heat treatment/annealing, or hot-paintbrush + heat treatment. Effectiveness has been widely proven against all sorts of pathogens, including Sars virus (also COVID19). The fact that it operates by causing membrane depolarization by contact avoids antimicrobial resistance development by bacteria and fungus. The latter is one of the main issues and drawbacks concerning metal-ion-releasing solutions.
G3® is highly disruptive, since it’s the first long-term, lasting antimicrobial agent, with mininum production/process environmental footprint, which is completely biodegradable &eco-friendly, as well as biocompatible and nano particle and metal free. The antimicrobians market has seen considerable development and growth inthe last decade, to 4,5 USD bn now. It is expected to accelerate & keep high momentum for obvious reasons related to awareness + public sensitivity towards sanitation and microbial protection.
At Nanoker we are thrilled to be one of twelve companies selected for the 2nd Go2SpaceHubs Accelerator program.
The Accelerator and the Go2Space Hubs
The accelerator is a high impact program based in the HUB Madrid (Spain) where we will receive, during three months, extensive online training and individualized mentoring in market and investment readiness, reinforcing technology base and reviewing operations management.
The objective of the EU-funded Go2Space-HUBs project is to secure the creation and up-scaling of European businesses, offering technology and services in and from the space sector, ensuring value creation and innovation through cross-fertilisation, training, and locally owned and driven networks and initiatives that connect effectively with existing EU initiatives.
This will be achieved through the creation of 3 Space hubs in Coimbra, Madrid and Tallinn strengthening local entrepreneurship/ business ecosystems & networks. The HUBs have extensive experience in providing support to start-ups and will be supported by entities that are experts on investor readiness & access to finance services, technology transfer, in addition to an aerospace cluster representing SMEs from all the relevant space-segments.
The 6 consortia partners represent key players in the local and regional start-up ecosystem.
We shall also attend sessions on European financing programs, and on the Technology Portfolio of the European Space Agency (ESA). Together with the other participants will also attend networking activities with experts from government, industry, research and investment sectors, and participate in events on the space sector, where we will present our solutions to potential investors and find strategic partners to grow our business globally.
At Nanoker, we have a lot to offer for space-related applications, particularly in the Ultra Stable Materials (Null CTE – Coefficient of Thermal Expansion, and Match CTE – matching the CTE of other substrates and materials in which our pieces are embedded). These materials are particularly interesting in Heat Dissipation, which is seeing widespread use in Power Electronics, a field that is even more relevant in environments such as Space.
But we are going to infinity, and beyond… Just check out our Space-Related self developed and industrialised deep tech materials:
Our Aerospace Advanced Materials
As said, at Nanoker we are thrilled to be one of twelve companies selected for the 2nd Go2SpaceHubs Accelerator program. We have a lot to bring to bear:
UHTCMC: Ultra-high temperature ceramic matrix composites.
From 2016 to 2020 we have developed and succesfully brought to real test conditions a series of advanced ceramic composites for extreme environments with deep tech densification process via SPS (Spark Plasma Sintering). Main uses include Aerospace/Hypersonic and Turbine parts Particularly, on a Next Generation Ceramic Composites For Combustion Harsh Environments And Space. In terms of specific parts, we have experience in plate & tube shaped bodies which can be placed in rocket nozzles’ combustion chambers and as Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) for particularly sensible areas in space and hypersonic vehicles, enduring high levels of stress during launch and re-entry phases.
BORON NITRIDE COMPOSITES – Erosion Protection and Insulation Elements
This is a Propietary Development by Nanoker. We carry out in-house production via High Performance Densification via SPS (Spark Plasma Sintering) in a variety of shapes and sizes. We have the unique ability to produce disks up to 400mm diameter. These materials are used in inner and outer walls in spacecrafts’ electrical propulsion systems. Magnetic shielding may substantially increase thruster life without compromising performance by protecting walls from ionized gas erosion. Advanced Composites help solving this problem: BN + Zr + SiC. Other “more terrestrial” applications are: Nozzles for Powder Metal Atomization or Insulators for Very High Temperature Furnaces.
GRAPHITE BASED COMPOSITES – High Performance Heat Sinks & Heat Spreaders
We feature more than 5 years experience in development and manufacturing of industrial parts in these composites, with outstanding CTE Match and Heat Dissipation capacity using SPS (Spark Plasma Sintering) advanced high-densification technology. Among others, our reference product/material is Molybdenum Graphite. Main Customers/Business Partners are CERN (Collimators), OSRAM (Heat sinks for High Power LED Diode). The best suited applications for these materials are POWER ELECTRONICS. i.e. – Diode Lasers, Power Transistor Substrates, LED Substrates, Wireless Communication, Electrical Drives, AEROSPACE Power Supplies, AVIONICS Systems, etc.
ULTRASTABLE CTE MATERIALS & NANOCOMPOSITES – Null Thermal Expansion
Based on the decades’ longlasting SiC (Silicon Carbide) standard for Aerospace Applications, we have advanced in the compounds & composites front, offering better solutions. The main material we produce is an array of Advanced Glass-Ceramics (SiC + LAS – Lithium Aluminum Silicate). The business partners for these composites are mainly companies such as ESA or THALES, which use them as Mirror Substrates for Satellites or in High Precision Optical Components.
