We’re starting a new feature on our blog, profiling hot technologies on seedsprint within a given scientific domain.
Today, we present 5 cutting-edge companies in advanced materials science:
A technology-development company, whose expertise and intellectual property will help industry-scale producers of light metals, specifically magnesium, and technical ceramics lower their production costs and reduce their harmful emissions.
A super-hydrophobic nano-particle coating based on an ALD/CVD deposition process of aluminum. The technology was developed as a conformal coating for protecting printed circuit boards from water damage. Products coated with this composite film exhibit excellent resilience when exposed to aqueous solutions. The nano-particle based film has a tunable durability such that the coating can be applied directly over electrical connectors without masking, thus offering unique protection over entire assemblies.
Ligar Polymers develops Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) which filter, extract or detect specific molecules of interest. MIPs are polymers designed to remove very specific molecules from a flow—even at ppb levels. MIPs are designed to work in a wide range of fluids, temperatures, pH ranges, flow rates and pressures. This filtration technology solves painful contamination problems and extracts valuable molecules, thus reducing costs.
Geckos’ feet are covered in millions of tiny hairs that give them their impressive climbing ability. nanoGriptech produces synthetic microfibers that attach to and grip to surfaces by attraction on a molecular scale, just like geckos’ feet. nanoGriptech manufactures glue-free adhesives from these microfibers that are reusable and residue-free. They also manufacture fasteners that are flexible, silent, and hermetic, as well as high friction materials that perform even when wet or oily, all with customizable strength (shear/peel, directional).
Revolution Fibres is an advanced materials company and a global leader in manufacturing nanofibres using electro-spinning machines and designing commercial nanofibre products that have many incredible physical properties. Revolution Fibres has the infrastructure, expertise, and a commercial track record of turning nanofibre into useful products.
Inside seed, industry subscribers aren’t limited to a blurb and a website link; subscribers get a compact, non-confidential summary. It’s not only very informative and way more efficient than visiting or scraping websites, it lets users reach out to each potential partner if they want to go further. From secure messaging seed goes on to provide online deal process tools – from NDA negotiation to data room access. No intermediaries and no transaction fees.
is free for scientific research organizations, incubators and young companies, and available at a fixed rate subscription for corporate use.
