Materials Development

We specialize in developing high-performance products that can meet the demanding environments of military aircraft, land vehicles, ships, and submarines. Products have been developed to resist high temperatures, explosive blasts, seawater, and extreme thermal and pressure cycling. Additional successes include the development of low fire, smoke, and toxicity formulations for internal shipboard use in both surface ships and submarines. Development of environmentally acceptable alternatives to toxic and volatile organic compound (VOC) products is also a specialty.

We have expertise in a wide range of polymer chemistries, including:

  • Epoxies
  • Neoprene
  • Phenolics
  • Polyurethanes (aliphatic and aromatic)
  • Polyureas
  • Polysulfides
  • Acrylics
  • Silicones

We have also developed materials for the medical, oil, marine, highway infrastructure and electronic industries. We have the capabilities to formulate, prototype and produce small batches.

We also have extensive materials testing facilities to determine properties and long term reliability of materials.
