Unlocking Advanced Materials Solving Environmental Challenges



Our patented technology is an economical and energy efficient manufacturing process for continuous coating of single layer nanomaterials over large areas.

By re-thinking the way in which promising 2D nanomaterials are processed, we enable sophisticated control over their integration into products in both an economical and scalable way. It is currently not possible by any other method to create large area films from monomolecular layers or from such a wide variety of 2D nanomaterials.

We'll address the world’s most pressing environmental challenges by offering disruptive product solutions. Products having advanced performance limits and device architectures that have been previously unexplored.
