Creating NTM Sensors
Through our extensive work in emerging technologies and environmental markets, we recognized a large deficiency in quality safety sensors and monitoring systems suited for these markets. The current systems were effective in detecting leaks and dangerous levels of various gases in the air, but any variety of gases could potentially set off the sensor.
We knew we couldn’t be the only ones disappointed in the gas sensing and monitoring solutions available. For such tailored markets, like the ones in which we work, you need tailored products. So, we resolved to create innovative and highly selective sensors designed specifically for the advanced technologies and environmental markets in which we were working.
In 2010 NTM Sensors was formed as a business unit of NexTech Materials to actuate our vision of providing specialized sensing systems for these neglected markets, and provide better sensing options to manufacturers. NTM Sensors leveraged its unique chemi-resistive sensing technology to launch its initial product – the NTM SenseH2® hydrogen sensor. It has since produced the NTM SenseH2®-R hydrogen sensor and has several more products in the works.
