Nanocomp Technology was developing a revolutionary material made of carbon nanotubes designed to be super-strong, ultra-lightweight, and withstand the harshest environmental conditions – even in space. They needed a name that would both showcase and simplify the complex science behind the product.
The name Miralon comes from blending the word miracle with a common ending for fabrics, -lon. The sounds are both smooth and strong, and the meaning speaks in an easy way to the amazing array of uses – everything from strength, ductility, and electrical conductivity to thermal transport. Today, you can find Miralon in space on NASA’s Juno spacecraft exploring Jupiter.
Startups are different. They need names that signal the company and its products are about the future, not the past. We have always enjoyed close ties to Silicon Valley, and our credentials include revolutionary and billion-dollar brands such as PowerBook and Pentium. This tradition has continued with more recent cutting-edge innovators such as Ten-X, Lucid Motors, Lightbend, and Tangible Science.
