Defects such as pinholes, cracks and grain boundaries are common in thin oxide barrier films when fabricated onto plastic substrates. These defects cause a 'pore effect', where oxygen and water molecules are able to seep through and penetrate the plastic barrier. TBF has taken an innovative approach to resolve the ?pore effect? by literally plugging the defects in the barrier oxide films using nanoparticles.
CERATOM® technology developed by TERMIONA is a brand new technology for thermal electricity markets. This technology determines the primary specialization of the company, i.e. manufacturing new generation of thermoelectric systems with nanostructured composite heat exchangers, the various thermal electricity devices based thereon inclusive.
Tesla NanoCoatings Inc. is a protective coating (paint) formulating company. Tesla manufactures Teslan Carbon NanoCoating in a 2-coat system that replaces a traditional 3-coat system used extensively for corrosion protection of steel. Tesla's coating uses carbon nanotubes which self- assemble into rope structures, making them highly conductive, tough and flexible.
The technology employed by Tethis for the production of nanostructured materials - nanostructured thin films - is based on a Pulsed Microplasma Cluster Source (PMCS) that was developed and patented by three of Tethis' co-founders.
Tetronics Tetronics is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of High Temperature DC Plasma arc technology. The company has been active in the field of nanopowder production for the last 20 years and has a wealth of knowledge in this exciting growth area. The high temperatures and steep thermal gradients present in the plasma hot zone, combined with the inherently clean, controllable nature of plasma makes it ideal for the production of a vast range of metallic, composite and ceramic nanopowders.
With the development of novel nano-materials with incresased thermal transport poperties, there is a critical need to be able to accurately measure small changes in thermal conductivity. ThermTest can assist with testing and intrumentation needs.
