Seeking A Technology To Reduce Cell Wall Permeability Of Rigid Polymeric Foams

We are seeking solutions to reduce the exchange of cell gasses in rigid PIR/PUR foams that results in loss of insulation performance over time.We are looking for solutions to contain an aged k-factor increase no greater than 5% (vs. initial). When rigid foams are manufactured, a PUR or PIR matrix i...

Seeking methods to reduce cell size in rigid polymeric foams for improved thermal insulation

There is interest in reducing the thermal conductivity of rigid polyurethane (PUR) foams by reducing the cell diameter from 80 - 100 microns to about 50 microns. Depending on the solution, we would also be willing to consider licensing, tech cooperation, or partner funded project....

Seeking Polycarbonate (PC) or PC blends with improved colorfastness after weathering without a coating

The challenge is to develop Polycarbonte (PC) or PC blends with improved weatherability that will be colorfast in a cost effective manner. Weatherability will be checked using standard accelerated aging tests. Depending on the solution, we would also be willing to consider licensing, tech cooperati...

Seeking proposals for economically viable, potentially scalable technologies that help reduce the energy consumption of the chlorine purification process.

Current technologies for chlorine purification involve energy intensive processes like condensation. Proposals for the efficient purification of Cl2 are requested. These proposals are sought to include economically viable, potentially scalable technologies that help reduce the energy consumption o...
