Nanomaterials have been shown to provide unique advantages for products in a variety of industries, when optimized or customized for specific products or applications. Their ultra-small size and large surface area bring about enhanced reactivity and exceptional properties, even when used at low concentrations.
Companies often try utilizing “off the shelf” nanomaterials to integrate into their product development — unsuccessfully. That doesn’t mean that nanomaterial won’t work in your application — these types of nanomaterials rarely provide the desired performance or integrate into products without some customization to fit your specific application. A small change in nanomaterial size, composition, functionalization, or surface chemistry can be the difference between obtaining the desired performance attributes and a successful nanomaterial integration or not.
That is where Cerion comes in – our solutions-based approach allows us to quickly provide you with optimized candidate materials based on your specified product application to enable you to establish proof of concept and more rapidly enable a path towards commercialization. Our team acts as an extension of your development team, following your lead to ensure fit and scalability for commercialization.
Our novel approach to nanomaterial design and scale-up allows our customers to easily access the expertise to apply the inherent advantages that nanomaterials add to their products.
Cerion scientists and engineers have decades of experience working with an expansive list of nanomaterials, allowing our customers to rely on us no matter how much nanomaterial expertise they have coming into our partnership.
