Products from New55
New55 Holdings, LLC, (or “New55 FILM”), located in Massachusetts, USA, develops products in the fields of imaging and nano-enabled materials. The Company is applying its expertise in nanotechnology to promising innovations first hinted at by Kodak, Polaroid, and others, with a goal to bring valuable new technologies market. New55 FILM is rapidly discovering new methods, materials and know-how in the fields of photochemistry and physics that are cleaner, less polluting, and have wide application to the manufacture of many other products for a greener world.
The Company’s first photographic product, “New55 PN”, is an ecologically sensitive large-format instant film that parallels a Polaroid product (Type 55) that was still profitable when that company ceased operations in 2008. Type 55 had a unique quality and gave a result unlike any other analog or digital image; however, its manufacture required expensive processes that employed VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). New55 PN addresses that technical and environmental challenge with a redesigned, all-aqueous process that eliminates toxic solvents.
