Minus 100 is a family owned and operated business. It was founded in 2003, and is located in North East Pennsylvania. The President, Kevin C. Kerns, has more than 42 years of experience in developing and commercializing micron-size and nano-size super-abrasive materials for use in the micro-electronics industry. Over the past 15 years, he has worked collaboratively with university and industrial customers in the development of carbon-based particles, suspensions, and has established important industry contacts for manufacturing carbon-based suspensions. He has successfully commercialized a number of innovations in the past using “top-down” approaches for manufacturing small particle suspensions using carbon allotropes (i.e., diamond, amorphous, semi crystalline, and glassy carbons). We are currently developing a new line of conductive carbon pigments for use in conductive inks, paints, and pastes. We look forward to continue to develop new products and processes with our industry partners.
