Advanced Nano Technologies was formed in 1997 to commercialise an advanced materials technology originally developed by the University of Western Australia. The technology was first scaled-up via a joint venture with Samsung Corning Co. Ltd, of Korea (2000 to 2004), and then as a stand-alone operation. It listed as Advanced Nanotechology in 2005, changed name to Antaria in 2008 and then changed back to a variation of its original name in 2012, Advanced Nano Technologies.
The company primarily offers zinc oxide and aluminum oxide powders for the personal care sector, as well as cerium oxides. Advanced Nano Technologies primary commercialised products include a transparent zinc oxide based broad spectrum UV absorber for use in the suncare and cosmetics sectors (ZinClear®) and an aluminium oxide pigment (Alusion®)
