Conductive Additives for Coating Solutions
PolyDrop, Washington, United States
PolyDrop’s first generation technology utilizes self-assembly to form large fiber networks of conjugated polymers that expand over much larger distances than single polymer chains. These networks can be simply incorporated into commercial coatings to make them electrically conductive for use in applications to static charge dissipation for CFRC.
Primary Application Area: Aerospace & Defense
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 9
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: PolyDrop markets conductive additives for use in commercial paints, primers, and coatings at much lower particle loading than existing technologies.
Organization Type: Early-stage Startup (Seed)
