BOSTON, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nano Terra announced the commercialization of a wall decor product incorporating technology co-developed with Ahlstrom Corporation, a leader in fiber-based materials. Ahlstrom launched the wall-covering product, EasyLife® Spray & Up, in May at FESPA Digital 2014, the world's leading digital imaging exhibition.
Nano Terra applied its surface science and advanced materials expertise, as well as its proven co-development model, to create with Ahlstrom a patent-pending technology that significantly improves the experience of applying wallpaper to the wall. Nano Terra worked with Ahlstrom to ideate, develop and support the scale-up of production of the technology – a wallpaper product that requires 60% less time to apply versus traditional wall-coverings, with much easier cleanup.
"We are proud to have had the opportunity to work with a forward-thinking, collaborative company like Ahlstrom to develop a new product that addresses key market needs. This program is representative of the kind of success our partnership model and scientific expertise can achieve," said Mike Fuerstman, Nano Terra's Vice President of Business Development.
Dr. Paul Stenson, Ahlstrom's EVP, Technology and Strategy Development, added, "We are happy to have worked with Nano Terra on the development of this wall-covering product. They brought creativity, professionalism, and expertise to this successful collaboration. The EasyLife® Spray & Up line is a good example of the kind of innovative products that Ahlstrom continues to bring to the market."
